“Adopt a Preacher”:  We have launched “Adopt a Preacher,” to request your financial sponsorship for our guest preachers for 10 Sundays in the fall ($150/week) when our vicar will be on sabbatical.  This was not an anticipated expenditure.  All 10 slots are filled!  Thank you, St Nickers, for so generously stepping up as you characteristically do.  Your help is much appreciated.
