3/20 Knit Together with our Faith

Lent gives us an opportunity to be introspective about our faith. This reflection can come in many different forms. Knitting has such a wonderful alignment with discipleship. It is approached by so many, and we all start in the same place and grow and learn at a different pace. Some people learn to knit a simple hat and others take it farther and learn to do intricate blankets or sweaters. None of us begins our spiritual journey with a fully developed sense of our personal discipleship, we have to grow and learn and try things out, to find where God speaks to us individually. Join us Wednesday evenings, March 13th-April 17th from 6-7pm in the Naylor Study for "Knit Together with Our Faith" led by Rev. Megan Armstrong. You will need to bring a set of US11 knitting needles and 555 yards of bulky/chunky yarn, color of your choice. Throughout Lent we will be working to knit prayer shawls. Each week we will learn the knitting skill at the beginning of our time and then we'll have a conversation on discipleship in the Lenten season. All are welcome, whether new to knitting or seasoned knitters. If you crochet, you are welcome, too, but Rev. Megan can't help teach those skills.

Habitat for Humanity Build Days

As many of you know, Christ Church has agreed to a three-year partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. We have pledged both financial and volunteer support to HFHMD's Critical Home Repair program, which does external repair and weatherization work on homes whose homeowners otherwise couldn't afford to maintain.


Our first volunteer project in our partnership will be April 3, 5, and 6 at 4700 Milwaukee Street from 9am-4:30pm (volunteers must commit to working a full day). If you'd like to volunteer please register by visiting http://vhub.at/ccum.  All participants must register online at least two weeks in advance, by March 20. Registering online ensures that participants accept the waiver and receive information about the day, what to bring, and the location of the project. After March 20, any unfilled spots will be opened up to the public to fill.


Tools are provided and no construction experience is necessary. If you have questions please contact Andy Blackmun at ablackmun@yahoo.com.
