Have you heard of the 901 Rocks community initiative? It’s a creative movement designed to spread happiness. “The goal is to cultivate kindness, plant joy, and harvest hope for a better tomorrow in the 901,” according to the 901 Rocks! facebook page. To take part, you paint rocks however you wish, and hide them in easy-to-find places around Memphis and surrounding areas within the 901.
Christ the King Lutheran Church plans to participate in the 901 Rocks fun by painting and planting CTK-themed rocks around our neighborhood inviting folks to our Easter services in April. In January, a group of CTK members, including teens and adults, took part in a painting and sculpting demonstration to become familiar with the proper tools, paints, and sealants to make great rocks. Other demos and painting parties are planned with the goal of producing at least 100 rocks to “hide” in our community.
CTK’s Job Comfort Dog received this 901 Rock, skillfully painted with his likeness, from a fan. We look forward to painting and hiding CTK rocks and reaping the harvest from this art-mixed-with-evangelism outreach effort.
