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.

‘Pilgrim’ Course on ‘The Eucharist’
In this course we will explore the reasons why the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) is celebrated as a memorial of Christ's saving death, what it means, why it stands at the very heart of our Christian worship, and how our participation can be more meaningful for us. Course materials will be provided; a donation of $15 to cover their cost is appreciated but not required. Please sign up using the sheet on the table in the foyer or contact Tim at 780-437-7231. This course will run for 6 Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9pm starting on Oct. 6th.

Christianity in Focus’ workshop
Join us on Saturday October 22nd from 9:30am to 4:30pm. This is a workshop for new Christians, soon to be Christians wanting to learn the basics, long time followers of Jesus who need a refresher and baptismal candidates and parents bringing children for baptism. Bring a bag lunch. Contact Tim at 780-437-7231 for more details.
