Paint Easter Rocks!

St. Paul's is hosting a 'Rock Painting Party' and everyone is invited!

People are painting "Kindness Rocks" and hiding them everywhere for others to find. ...

 

The idea is simple: get a rock, paint it and hide it, and then leave a hint on Facebook so others can find it. It's a trend that is popping up all across the country.

So come and paint pictures, inspirational words or fancy designs on rocks and take them with you to leave them somewhere special.
A great way to spend more time together with family and friends doing something that everyone can enjoy!


Paint and brushes will be supplied by us!

Date: Saturday, April 4
Time: 12:00 noon until 4:00 pm.
Drop in anytime or stay the entire afternoon!

Why Knot Try Knitting?

Knitting for beginners ... monthly workshop

Frustrated by those “easy” Pinterest patterns?!
Even if you’re all thumbs, this is the course for you! A very simple beginning for anyone, with hands-on instruction, handouts, and even ongoing support.

Join us for a bit of fun and fellowship and discover just how easy knitting can be.
Coffee, Tea & Treats provided!
Please bring a ball of “chunky” (heavy) yarn and a pair of number 5mm needles, straight or circular. (Circular needles are considerably easier for most folks to work with.)
Although there is NO COST for the workshop, a freewill offering can be made to the “Mission to Seafarers,” a church-funded ministry that supports seafarers on ocean-going ships while they are in ports, in Thunder Bay and worldwide.

Participants will need to have a knowledge of crocheting. Please bring clean shopping bags, scissors, and jumbo 16mm – Q plastic crochet hooks. (Limited supply of hooks available to buy at workshop.)

Do you have bags you can donate? Please drop them off on matting night or call the church office at 622-4945 to set a drop-off time more convenient for you.
