First Ladies Spring Tea at Our Redeemer’s Lutheran a resounding success!

ORLC1An amazing, beautiful, and successful event was held at Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church in Helena, Montana, on April 18th. The first Spring Tea for ladies was spearheaded by Sharon Amor and Delores Rosin and sprang out of the creative energies of both ladies. The desire was to have a fun and festive event that could benefit Intermountain’s children in residence. Thrivent Financial graciously stepped forward with the financial support needed to offset the costs incurred. So, with the excitement and enthusiasm of nearly two dozen table designers, and with the blessing of Pastor Kendra Wilde, the project was under way.

I was blessed enough to be called on to wait one of the tables and offer a few words of sincere thanks on behalf of the children of Intermountain and the staff that minister to them. It was an honor to serve alongside the many volunteers that helped make the day possible, not the least of which were the impeccably dressed men of the church who had been drafted into service as wait staff for the event.

ORLC2I think you will be able to see from the pictures here that the ladies set the bar VERY high for their first effort of this kind—the tables were beautiful, the food was amazing, and the entertainment from the Last Chance Barbershop Chorus was inspiring and beautiful.

Guests to the Tea all brought gifts for the children from the Spring and Summer “Wish List” as well as very generous cash donations. All told, the support raised for Intermountain was over $2,300! We at Intermountain continue to be blown away at the amazing creativity and generosity of our supporting churches. Our Redeemer’s Lutheran is a caring congregation of people who understand the heart of the gospel—loving God through loving service to others!
