Plans are underway for Zoe Christian Fellowship of Los Angeles to offer two events for the local community.

On Saturday, June 16, at 11 a.m., First Lady Sandra Stewart will host the Charlene V. Stewart Memorial Tea. The event takes place at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Culver City. The theme is “Bouquets of Beauty.”

Explaining the inspiration behind the program, Lady Stewart said, “Having a tea was a daily function in my grandmother’s home. Tea and talk with her sisters was break time from the day’s chores.


“The greatest event of to us children was her special tea parties with ladies dressed so elegantly in lovely hats. The smell of cakes, cookies, teacakes, and dainty sandwiches filled the air. All kinds of translucent glass dishes, trays and plates were placed on the lace tablecloth containing all the dainties the ladies brought,” she recalled.

Aiming to revive the custom, Lady Stewart issued an invitation for the public to attend the event. The $25 donation is due by June 12, and can be made by calling (323) 931-1477, extension 3 or 4, or online at zcfla.org.

Also, Bishop Frank Stewart, senior pastor, will lead a tour to the sacred sites located in Israel and Egypt. The 12-day visit is set for Nov. 5 through Nov. 17. The public is welcome to participate.

“Israel is a place that every believer should go at least once in a lifetime. There are some scenes that add to the reality of Jesus’ life such as the walls of old Jerusalem, the street Jesus was taken to the cross, and the Jordan River, where I usually baptize believers,” said Bishop Stewart, who will mark his eighth tour to Israel.

“In Egypt, we will visit the Nile River, the pyramids and the Cairo Museum. Also, we will go to south Egypt where the Nubians will wave and say, ‘Welcome home, my Nubian cousin.’ This will be one trip that will stay in your mind forever,” he insisted.

A $400.00 deposit will reserve your spot, said the bishop, who added, “I will be so glad to have you with me on this tour. Pray about it. I am believing I will see you there!”


For information, call (323) 931-1477, ext. 3.
