Compassionate Knitting

All are welcome—yarn, needles, and instruction available if you need it.  Compassionate Knitting meets on the second Tuesday of each month (not meeting in August, 2017). Knitters of any skill level are welcome--in fact, if you don't knit and would like to learn, patient teachers are always on hand.  Beautiful yarn and needles have been donated, so bring your willing spirit and join us for an evening of knitting and conversation. Any questions? Email Rose 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:     The Chapel (upstairs at PCiS)

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 Group. The next meeting of the PCIS book group will take place here at church Sunday, June 25 at9:00 am as part of the June adult classes series. The book to be discussed is Pope Francis's second encyclical Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common. He draws all Christians into a dialogue with every person on the planet about our common home.  We as human beings are united by the concern for our planet, and every living thing that dwells on it, especially the poorest and most vulnerable.  Pope Francis’s letter joins the body of the Church’s social and moral teaching, draws on the best scientific research, and provides the foundation for the ethical and spiritual itinerary that follows.  Catherine Crow will lead the discussion.  We will break for July and August, and reconvene in September.

Artists Group

If you’re an amateur artist, or would like to become one, consider coming to the Artists Group, which meets most Mondays during the school year from 7:00–9:00pm. Please check the online calendar for current information. We just gather to support one another in experimenting, creating and improving our artwork, whatever the media or style.
