How to Draw Classes

How to Draw Classes

 

Pender’s Children’s Ministry Leader David Raich is offering How To Draw lessons for children from Pre-K through 6th Grade. Join us on select Sundays at 1pm!

 

There will be two How to Draw events this month with more added next month:

January 17 – “Winter Town”
January 31 – “Valentine theme”

Both events will start at 1 pm and for no longer than an hour.

Children minimal requirements: must be able to follow directions and know basic shapes of the alphabet!

Parental involvement as parent knows their own child and needs best.

**Supplies needed – At least an 8.5 X 11 paper to draw on and parent/kid choice of markers, crayons or colored pencils.

***We will CAP the event at 20 live feeds. Hopefully, this will reduce lag time and other technical disturbances.

Pender’s Chrismon Tree

Chrismon Tree. Did you know that Pender has a Chrismon Tree in the sanctuary during Advent and at Christmas time?

Do you know what do those symbols mean on the tree? Who made them and why?

Ornaments made from Christian symbols (or Chrismons, a contraction for ‘Christ monograms’) were first developed by Frances Spencer and the women of the Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, VA. Many churches display a Chrismon tree during the Advent and Christmas season decorated with handmade ornaments.

Pender’s ornaments were made by our Prayer Shawl Ministry in 2013 (At that time, it was called Casting God’s Love).  This is a sample of what they made using a technique called counted cross stitch:
