There will be a Photo Management course for St. Margaret youth and want-to-be youth on Saturday, December 5 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  at the church. The software that we will be using is Google’s Picasa which can be installed on Mac and Windows computers. It is hopeful that participants will be able to provide their own laptops or notepads. Picasa is a free program and can be downloaded from Google  (https://picasa.google.com/).  Sign up sheet on the table at the church.

We would like to invite you and your children to join us for Spaghetti Church on Saturday November 28th, 2015 from 4pm to 6pm. Spaghetti Church is church for families that enjoy a more informal, activity-centered and community-oriented way of worshipping together from time to time. It typically includes a craft or other activity time, a family-friendly worship and teaching time, and a simple meal (hence the spaghetti!). Please note that this is not something you can drop your kids off for; it is intended to be about families worshipping together.
We do have a signup sheet policy as food is prepared for all who will be coming. Spaghetti Church is only possible because the people who come volunteer to help out with the various tasks. If you would like more information please call the office at 780-437-7231.

Sunday November 29th 7:00 p.m. St. Margaret’s Christmas Variety Concert: in support of World Vision’s ‘Raw Hope’ project. Tickets are $10 or $30 for a family. Please contact the office for more information.

Cookies, dainties, bars, fruit trays and cakes will all be lovingly accepted. All baking must be at the Church by the morning of Nov. 29th (Sunday).

Current Outreach Opportunities!

We are collecting coins (change) on Sundays to allow our World Vision sponsor children and their communities to have   special celebrations such as birthdays.
From now until Advent, we will be collecting socks, deodorant, juice boxes and healthy granola bars (no chocolate please) for the Youth at the Youth Emergency Shelter.
During Advent we will be stuffing cosmetic bags for the homeless.
We thank you for supporting any or all opportunities for Outreach!


Youth Blog:- We are in need of HELP from the congregation! The youth discipleship blog is up and running (http://stmargaretsyouth.blogspot.ca). We are looking for volunteers to write short practical pieces for the blog, aimed at the youth, about their own journey as disciples. Please e-mail Tim, stmrector@gmail.com and he will post them on the blog.
