ADULT ED: GETTING TO KNOW THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH If anyone’s interested in increasing their knowledge of the Episcopal Church and how its traditions and theology differ from other Christian groups, St. Nick’s is having a two-session class in April. While it’s officially designated for adults being confirmed or received by Bishop Dietsche when he’s here on April 28, the class is open to anyone with curiosity. Rick Levitt will be leading the two 90-minute sessions, which will be held April 3 and April 10 at 7:30pm here at St. Nick’s. You’ll enjoy the class all the more if you visit these two websites before dropping in:

With the monies raised they will take a vote on what gift they will donate to a family in a developing country. To join in, you too can pick-up an Easter to fill with coins. The results of the vote will be announced Easter Sunday.
