Here's a link to a post by Rachel Jones, Associate Editor at Forward Movement, an organization in the Episcopal Church in the USA that produces daily Bible reading and adult education resources for lay people. It's about her experience of daily Bible reading and how it has changed her life. It's a hugely encouraging post and I think you'll enjoy it!

St. Margaret’s is always looking for volunteers to help with our many roster duties. Some of these include:
- Altar Guild (setting up altar for Communion and clean up after service)
- Scripture readers, Intercessors, lay administrants and greeters/sidespeople
- Prayer leaders during Communion
- Sunday school teachers
- Volunteers to provide light refreshments / coffee after the service
If you are interested in helping in any way, or would like further information, please talk to Tim, or email stmrector@gmail.com.

The Commandments, a ‘Pilgrim’ course for Lent will be starting on Thursday March 9th, not March 2nd as previously advertised. It will run for six Thursday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. To register please use the sign up sheet in the front foyer or contact Tim at stmrector@gmail.com or 780-437-7231.

St. Margaret’s Shrove Tuesday pancake supper is on February 28th. We require some volunteers to help with the meal, so there is a volunteer sign up sheet on the table in the foyer. There is also a sign up sheet so that you can let us know if you will be attending the 5pm or 6pm seating.

We are having a family pizza and games night on Friday March 10th at the church. It will start at 5:30pm, with pizza at 6:30pm. Everyone is welcome. If you have a favourite game, please bring it along. There is a sign up sheet on the table in the foyer to let us know if you can come, and another if you’d like to help with some food/snacks.

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 Feb 24th 2017.  Thank you.
