MARK YOUR CALENDERS
Sunday June 5th 12 noon: Spring Congregational Meeting
Saturday June 18th 3.00 p.m. Annual Parish BBQ
We will be holding our customary spring BBQ at the home of Lorne and Beryl Rice (near Nisku) on Saturday 18th starting mid-afternoon and running into the evening. Food, games, fun and fellowship. Please bring a salad/side dish for sharing and meat and something to drink for yourself. Directions and maps will be forthcoming closer to the event.

The next Lunch Bunch will be Thursday, May 19th at St. Margaret's Church starting at 11:30 a.m.
Everyone is welcome. Please come and join us for a time of fellowship.  Stan Gerber will be doing a Photo Show entitled "Welcome to Spring".
If you would like to attend there is a sign up sheet in the front foyer or contact the church office at 780-437-7231.
We're delighted to announce that Reed and Linda Fleming from Street Hope Saint John will be visiting Edmonton from June 15th to 27th. This trip is partly a holiday for them and partly an opportunity for them to connect with the St. Margaret's family as our parish is a big supporter of the work of Street Hope. Reed will be preaching on Sunday June 26th and we will also be arranging some coffee and fellowship events while they are with us.
Reed and Linda's air fares to come to Edmonton total around $1400. Threshold Ministries staff are not exactly paid luxurious salaries, and Reed is responsible for raising most of his own salary through his own fundraising activities. If you would like to make a donation toward Reed and Linda's air fares, please pass it on to Tim. Cheques should be made out to Threshold Ministries and clearly marked for Reed Fleming/Street Hope Saint John. Tax receipts will be through Threshold.

Winnifred Stewart: Empties to Winn Project
Please feel free to bring some or all of your empty bottles (juice, milk, cans, and other beverage containers) and drop them in our bags. Please support Winnifred Stewart by making provision for this project! Next pick up should be May 27th, 2016.  Thank you!

We would like to invite you and your children to join us for the last Spaghetti Church until Fall on Saturday, May 28th from 4PM to 6PM. Spaghetti church is for families that enjoy a more informal, activity-centred and community oriented way of worshipping. It includes crafts and other activities, worship and lessons, and a simple meal. There is a signup sheet in the foyer. If you would like more information contact the church office at 780-437-7231
