Is there help?

Someone heard about a presentation to be made down in Manchester, NH, by a group called "Sacred Spaces." There was mention of "new dollars" and "new partners" and other positive-sounding things. One of our members heard the pitch and came away interested. Working with the NH Preservation Alliance, the Sacred Spaces team was offering a comprehensive training course for churches facing expensive building repairs or renovations. It sounds good, but only five churches each from New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine will be admitted via a grant application process.

Now we need to find three members willing to sign on for the four days of training—and everything else the project might entail. We are also supposed to have our pastor on the team, but he's leaving the church in June, so that is impossible. The application deadline is April 29.
