Compassionate Knitting

All are welcome—yarn, needles, and instruction available if you need it.  Compassionate Knitting meets on the second Tuesday of each month. 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 rosedeboer@gmail.com.

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 rosedeboer@gmail.com 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

The Book Club will begin meeting again on Friday, September 29 at 7:30 pm in the Chapel.  The book discussion will be Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, a beloved American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century.  It is a poignant and moving tale filled with compassion and cruelty, laughter and heartache, crowded with life and people and incident. The story of young, sensitive and idealistic Francie Nolan and her bittersweet formative years in the slums of Williamsburg has enchanted and inspired millions of readers for more than sixty years. Aline Rober will lead the discussion. All are welcome and encouraged to come.

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. Contact the church office (978-443-9151) for more information, or just join us in the Fellowship Hall.
