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 do join us! Non-knitters are welcome to enjoy fellowship and conversation. 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:     The Youth Room (Class Room area 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 Club – Friday, April 26, 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel. In May, we’ll discuss, An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith by Barbara Brown Taylor. Taylor explores our longing for God and for spiritual depth. She says that even people who are not members of a church can name this longing “for more meaning, more feeling, more connection, more life. When I hear people talk about 'spirituality' that seems to be what they are describing. They know that there is more to life than meets the eye.” Taylor offers 12 practices, things we can do in everyday life, as ways to connect us to the divine. One reader says, “This book is not a page-turner. It’s a page-lingerer.” Jean Olson will be the group leader, and the meeting will be on Friday, May 31 (since the last Friday of May does *not* fall on Memorial Day weekend this year) at 7:30 in the Chapel. If you have questions, contact Cat Crow at
