Shoreline Baptist held their first annual Royal Tea on Saturday May 4. The sanctuary was transformed by church members into a beautiful tea room with thirteen tables decorated in a variety of festive themes along with take home favors placed at each table for every guest. Friends, family and newcomers who left as friends gathered from all around Southport and Oak Island to honor God with a day of fellowship. Door prizes were given and Speaker Anne Marie Armistead shared her powerful testimony (hear audio below). Two attendees gave their life to Christ and three women re-affirmed their belief in our Lord.
