Philadelphia Pentecostal Holiness Church in Ellendale held a Doll’s Tea Party Dec 15.
The girls in the program each have a doll, provided by director Helena Gibbs, and each doll has a biblical name. The girls do research to learn the story behind each character. Girls treat the doll like a real person who helps them learn life skills such as hygiene, first aid, safety skills and even basic cooking skills.
Above all else, they stress good manners and respect for all people. At the Saturday event, the girls took to the stage by themselves and gave the story of their doll’s biblical namesake.
