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

PCIS Book Group. The Book Club will meet Friday,April 27, and will discuss Wonderby R. J. Polacco (realistic fiction). August Pullman is a 10-year-old boy who likes Star Wars and Xbox.  He is quite ordinary – except for his jarring facial anomalies.  Homeschooled all his life, August heads to public school for fifth grade, and he is not the only one changed by the experience – something we learn about first-hand through the narratives of those who orbit his world. August’s internal dialogue and interactions with students and family ring true, and though remarkably courageous he comes across as a sweet, funny boy who wants the same things others want: friendship, understanding and the freedom to be himself.  We especially encourage middle and high school students to read this book and join us for the discussion.  Leader: Cindy Faulkner. Contact Catherine Crow with questions, cat@crowcastle.net.

Bon Appetit! 

Everyone has a favorite book or movie - what's yours? Chances are that it references some sort of food. So that is the theme of our next Bon Appetit event. Please bring a beverage, and dish of something inspired by your favorite book or movie. This month's hosts are Jane Dossett and Linda Smith. We will meet at the Smiths Saturday, May 19 from 6 to 9 PM. We look forward to tasting your contributions and hearing about everyone's choices. We will collect RSVPs through evite (invitation sent through email) to manage logistics, and advertise upcoming events in our weekly e-blast and Sunday bulletin. This small group is intended to encourage community outreach and we welcome friends and neighbors.  If you have any questions, wish to volunteer to host or wish to be removed from the email list please contact either Christine Clark at christineclark_us@yahoo.com or Andy Roosa at raroosa@gmail.com.
