Knitters, unite! Fall is upon us—if you're ready to plunge into a new project, now is the time. We're working on getting nice collections of hand-knit scarves and hats for distribution at Christmas. Or, come and work on your own project and enjoy some lively conversation at the same time. Friendly instruction, yarn, needles, and encouragement are always available. If you have questions, contact Rose DeBoer at

Who:     Any junior high or high school student—and their interested friends. Plus, we welcome knitters of all ages to come as well. Something warm and wonderful happens when knitters—and those soon-to-be-knitters—join forces.

What:     Knitting gifts of love for those in need

Times:     Second Tuesdays of every month, 7:00–8:15 p.m.

Where:     Chapel

How:     “I don’t know how to knit. Now what?” Come anyway. Needles, yarn, and instructions will beprovided. A little practice—you’ll be on your way.

Note from Rose:     Please email a quick RSVP to me at so that I can have enough yarn and knitting needles on hand. Friends are welcome, just let me know how many so I can plan. (It’s really fun to knit with friends!) 

If you’re coming to work on your own projects, no need to RSVP. Bring your projects and join us..

PCIS Book Group

PCIS Book Club –Friday, September 27, 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel.

In September, we will revisit Glenn Malloy's book, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life by Richard Rohr. In this book, Fr. Rohr seeks to help readers understand the tasks of the two halves of life and to show them that only those who have fallen, failed, or "gone down" can understand what it means to be "up". Most of us tend to think that the second half of life is largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as "falling upward". In fact, it is not a loss but actually a gain, as we have all seen with elders who have come into their fullness. Our group leader will be Glenn Malloy. There will be no meeting in August.
