Welcome Notes . . . .

We’ve heard many times that we need to welcome newcomers to our services by introducing ourselves to them. However, many people respond, “But I’m not here every week; what if it’s not their first time? I’ll feel really stupid if I ask them, ‘Is this your first time here?’ and they reply, ‘No, I’ve been coming for a few months now’”. Tim recommends the following question (which always works well for him!): “I have a terrible memory: have we met before?”


ITEMS TO NOTE

St. Margaret’s 30th Anniversary: On September 12, 2010 St. Margaret’s will celebrate 30 years. We will have one service at 10am and a BBQ will follow. Bishop Jane Alexander will preside at the service.

St. Margaret’s Summer Bulletin Campaign

This summer we would like to see what churches were visited over the summer months. When you are on holidays we ask that you bring the bulletins from the churches attended back to St. Margaret’s and post them on the board in the foyer.

Letter From Partel: We have received a letter from our World Vision Sponsor child Partel. Please take a moment to read it; the letter is posted on the bulletin board in the foyer

New Daylight: If you subscribe to the New Daylight, please pick up your copy on the table in the foyer.

Do you have historical pictures of St. Margaret’s? Stan Gerber is pulling together a PowerPoint presentation for our 30th Anniversary. He would like to “borrow” any historical pictures you might have. Please get them to him soon as September comes quickly.

Assistance Needed – Peter Rayment is please to have his ex-wife and Son Christopher, back in Edmonton. They are seeking affordable accommodation, for more information please talk to Peter.
