Every Wednesday morning from 9:30-11:30 our crafters meet in the church library to share fellowship and to create:
-Free hats, scarves, mittens and gloves for chilly local kids through our ministry partners, the Phyllis Zumkher County Clothing Center, Kent Social Services and the Miller Community House shelter for homeless.
No experience necessary! Group members are happy to teach you how to knit and crochet – all tools and materials provided.
The Black Squirrel Piecemakers are a group of women who make quilts for babies in the community who are in need. We give the quilts to Project Linus who distributes them. We are a new group who meet here in the parish hall every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until noon. No skills are required. Everyone is learning new skills. No sewing machine is required, but one can be brought to the group. We would love to have others join us.
We currently have one active foyer group, but would love to expand this fun fellowship ministry! Foyer Groups are small groups of 8-10 persons sharing simple meals and fellowship. The intention is to have fun and provide an opportunity for us to meet each other and/or to become better acquainted. Each group meets once a month for a simple meal and relaxed conversation in the homes of members. Foyer Groups are not intended to do anything, but simply to be what Christians are: groups of people who gather together and “love one another.” Foyer Groups provide time to be with one another so that friendship may grow. Each month, two of the members host or plan a gathering. They convene the group and welcome all into their home. Foyer Groups are not a study or prayer group; they have no agenda other than spending time with one another, which is important for the building of Christian community in our parish. The uniqueness of the Foyer Group is its lack of formal structure, its openness of communication, and its free access given to the Spirit. Please let us know if you are interested in joining a foyer group!
We sponsor Troop 257 who meets at Christ Church every week on Mondays from 7:00-8:30pm.
Our church sponsors Venture Crew 2257. Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade and under 21 years of age. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults, with an emphasis in adventure, leadership, personal growth, and service.
