This event is a wonderful opportunity to share the Hope + Life found in Jesus with those with whom you connect. We'll be enjoying amazing desserts, beautiful music and hear from our speaker Karrie Garcia.
Karrie Garcia is a speaker, life coach, wife, mother of three and advocate for misfits who is passionate about proclaiming the freedom that can come from a life surrendered to Christ. Through facing drug addiction, the suicide of her mother, and the breakdown of her first marriage, she understands the need for grace, mercy and healing that can only come from Jesus Christ.

Frequently Asked Questions
You need to provide all table settings, decorations and serving utensils for your table: plates, water glasses, mugs or cups for hot drinks, flatware, napkins, container for sweeteners/creamers, dessert for eight guests and utensils to serve it, plus any type of decorations you’d like.
Central Women’s Ministries will provide a 60” round table with a white tablecloth, nametags, markers, programs, a conversation starter card, bag for cleanup, coffee, tea, cold & hot water, sweeteners and cream.
We would love for you to leave some or all of the seats at your table open. However, you may fill all or some of your table. A minimum of 3 seats must be left open if you don't purchase all of the seats. (This allows for those purchasing tickets with friends to remain together.) Ticket price is $5.00. Your ticket is complimentary, and if you have a co-hostess who is helping you, hers is complimentary as well.
Here is another option for those who enjoy setting a beautiful table and want us to fill your table. We have women who would love to act as a hostess but don't care to set the table. We will be happy to fill your table with a hostess, dessert and guests! Thank You!
Yes! It can be simple with decorative paper plates and a wreath with your dessert. Simple is often best.
We do not have use of electrical outlets at this event so if you desire to have lighting, it must be battery-operated.
For safety, we do not allow lit flames in the church. You may use battery-operated candles for lighting.
If your dessert needs to be chilled or frozen, you will have to bring it at the time of the event (5:30 pm for hostesses). You can bring a cooler for storage if necessary. We will enjoy dessert before the speaker, so it should be fine for that short time. We do not have freezer or refrigerator space available for this event.
Ask one of your friends if they would be willing to hostess! If you can’t think of anyone, please notify us as soon as possible, as the guests at your table are assigned early and we will need to find a replacement hostess if they were not guests that you invited.
You can ask another guest; please let us know that the name for the seat has changed. We always have a waiting list for this event and if you don’t have anyone else to ask, you can turn in the ticket and we will attempt to place someone.
We strongly encourage hostesses to have a co-hostess due to the importance of connecting with each attendee, especially those who may make a life changing decision after hearing the message. It's very difficult to connect with all table attendees.
