Back to Church Sunday!      September 29th, 2013

Back to Church Sunday is an opportunity to invite someone who does not normally attend church to come to church with you and experience the difference the Gospel of Jesus Christ can make to a community of people!

Michael Harvey, founder of Back to Church Sunday, says that when he is making phone calls to ask clergy if he can come and talk to them about it, he usually has to go through nine ‘no’s’ before he gets to a ‘yes’. How many ‘no’s’ are you willing to go through before you get to a ‘yes’?

Donate a Chair . . . If you wish to make a special contribution to cover the cost of our new sanctuary seating each chair is $75.00. Chair donations can be made through your regular offering envelopes.

Inner City Pastoral Ministry Lunch
St. Margaret’s in partnership with Annunciation RC Church will be providing and serving lunch at the Bissell Center on Sunday July 21st. We normally serve about 300 people. A sign up sheet will be at the back of the church for those wishing to serve.
We require . . .
Desserts – finger desserts such as squares or cookies.
Prepared raw vegetables – carrots, celery, cucumbers, cauliflower, peppers or cherry tomatoes. (Do not include dips.)
Fruit – bananas, apples, oranges, melon or grapes
Please indicate the amount of food you will be providing. If you prefer to make a donation, please enclose it in your Sunday offering and mark it ICPM. The last few years our expenses have exceeded our donations. We will purchase all the sandwich ingredients as well as pickles, coffee, sugar, juice crystals, paper products, ect.
On Sat. July 20th, 2013 we will be making the sandwiches in the Church basement (10:00 am ) and will required 10 people. If you have extra plastic grocery bags could you leave them in the church kitchen. We require about 100 to send out extra sandwiches to the homeless.
On Sunday July 21st we require 10 people at the Bissell Center to prepare, serve lunch and clean up ( 9:00 am – 1:30 pm). The Bissell Center is located at 10503 96th Street with parking and access at the back.
We have quite a few volunteers but still require 3 – 4 additional ones for each day. If you are able to help please contact M. Woytkiw @ 780-434-0311 or M. Chesterton @ 780-432-2255.
