The Maker’s Hands
First Tuesday each month | 7:00–8:30 p.m. | Butterfield
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. – 1 Peter 4:10
Do you have a passion for working with your hands? Join an exciting new group at Christ Church seeking to devote the work of our hands to God’s Kingdom. This collective of craftspeople and artisans will use their unique, God-given gifts to serve the church, the community and those in need. The fruits of this ministry will include creating hand-crafted works of art; training the youth of the church in tools and woodworking; and other service-oriented projects in the area.
This group is open to everyone from the novice to skilled professional (i.e. craftsperson to master carpenter). You can also learn a trade (glass blowing, wood working, jewelry making, etc.) or if you are skilled in any trade, then we want you to teach it so others can learn.
We will also work with our Family Ministry to engage students in our Mosaic Community. Maker’s Hands members will be assigned a group of students to teach trade skill sets such as carpentry techniques to include introduction to proper tool usage, which will be particularly useful for students prior to attending any missions trips that involve building or repairing structures. Knowing basic carpentry skills and safety protocols around tool usage will help students serve better on these trips.
