Retrouvaille: A Lifeline for Marriage
Retrouvaille helps couples through difficult times in their marriages. Has your marriage passed through the Romance stage? Retrouvaille is designed to provide the tools to help get your marriage back on track. It will give you the opportunity to rediscover each other and examine your lives together in a new and positive way. This program has helped 10’s of 1000’s of couples experiencing marital difficulty at any stage. For confidential information or to register for the program beginning with a weekend on Nov 14-16, 2014.  e-mail, Phone  780-577-1474, or  Website

Saturday Nov. 8th 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.: ‘How to Relax and Enjoy Evangelism’.Does your heart start to pound when you hear the words ‘witness’ or ‘evangelism’? Although we have experienced God’s presence, and Jesus has told us to share his good news with the world, we’re often shy or scared to talk about faith with people outside the church. Come join us, and learn why evangelism doesn’t have to be stressful. It’s time to stop living in fear.
Note: this is a diocesan workshop hosted by St. Margaret’s as part of the evangelism training program for all interested people in the Diocese of Edmonton. To register, please email or call the synod office at 780-439-7344.

World Vision Sponsor Children We would like to create an area on our bulletin board to display pictures of children currently sponsored by members of the congregation. If you have a World Vision sponsor child, could you please lend us your picture for a couple of weeks?

Computer Skills Training – Stan Gerber is willing to set up some computer training at St. Margaret’s (for MacIntosh or Windows).
Would you like to learn more about your computer? Would you like some guidance as to what to buy if you have not purchased a computer? Are you “scared stiff” about technology?
Initial Meeting date: Oct. 23 from 1pm to 3pm. We will be discussing the basics and developing an agenda for future sessions.
Course will be customized to meet your needs. Please sign up on form in the foyer if you are interested.
Feel free to bring in your computers to this session
