Please bring a salad/side dish for sharing and meat and something to drink for yourself. Directions and maps are available on the table in the foyer.

Lunch Bunch Lunch
The next Lunch Bunch will be Thursday, June 16th at St. Margaret’s Church starting at 11:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome. If you would like to attend there is a signup sheet on the table in the front foyer or contact the church office at 780-437-7231. Reed and Linda Fleming will be with us for this lunch.

Sunday School Wrap-up
Sunday School will conclude for the summer on Sunday, June 26th. We invite all the children and their parents, if they wish, to join us downstairs during Sunday School for the wrap-up party.

St. Margaret’s is looking for Sunday School Teachers for the Fall. We currently have two classes – preschool age and school age. If you have a love for children and are interested in helping our young kids grow in love, knowledge, and faith in Christ, please 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.
