Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Saturday April 29th (time TBD) for a Ministry Plan Visioning Day. More information will follow, however please pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and think prayerfully about these questions:
·      What is God calling us to pray for?
·      What is God calling us to become?
·      What is God calling us to do?
Please use this prayer daily as we get ready for our workshop on April 29th:
Gracious Lord, we ask that you look with favour upon the people of St. Margaret's as we prepare for our Ministry Planning workshop. Fill our hearts with joy that we may participate enthusiastically. Fill our minds with wise thoughts that we may make decisions that further your kingdom here on earth. Guide us as we consider our contributions in worship, community building, discipleship and mission. We ask that the Holy Spirit inspire our time together as we seek to serve you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
