On Saturday Nov. 10 from 11 a.m. to Noon there will be a Princess Tea at the First Baptist Church at 501 First Ave. in Johnsonburg. All girls in grades 1-5 are invited to attend.  There are always dress-up accessories, snacks and some tea or hot cocoa. Following the snack, Bailey Pretak shares a lesson that teaches these princesses the truth about beauty.  Then, they finish the hour making a craft that will serve as a reminder of the lesson. Last month the girls learned that they are God's treasure and decorated little treasure chests.  Please spread the word!
