Come enjoy a spot of tea while supporting the Children’s Ministries of Tanzania. In 2023, we will continue the Alabama West Florida Conference partnership, Teaming with Tanzania, by offering the second in a series of three workshops dedicated to the training and support of  UM church children’s leaders. To raise support for this ministry, our team will be hosting a Tanzania Tea Room, complete with a traditional style tea that will include a variety of teas, tasty scones, savory tea sandwiches and yummy sweets. We hope you will invite friends  to  come enjoy a wonderful tea while supporting a wonderful ministry. Cost includes sandwiches, scones, baked treats and your choice of three teas. Seating options include tables of two, four or eight. Scan the QR code to make reservations.

In March of 2018 a team of 10 people from the Alabama-West Florida Conference traveled to Tanzania to explore possibilities for greater support of the United Methodist Church in Tanzania. From this trip Teaming with Tanzania was established to develop a long-term partnership between the Alabama-West Florida Conference and the United Methodist Church of Tanzania.

Worship and Evangelism Through the Building of Churches

As the Gospel continues to spread in Tanzania and new United Methodist churches are established, church buildings are needed to support these congregations. By supporting the construction of a church building, First Church can provide a place for the people of Tanzania to worship while promoting evangelism around the world. The cost of church building projects range from $25,000 for a smaller village church to $50,000 for a larger town church. This cost includes the land purchase, church construction, and a parsonage.
