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.

After the 10:30am service next Sunday April 30th, we will be having a meeting for all those who have volunteered, or would like to volunteer, to help out with the maintenance of the church building and yard. Many hands make light work! So please plan to attend even if there may only be one or two things you have time to help with throughout the year. For more information, please talk to Elsie McFall or Debbie Legere, or email stmargaretsedmonton@gmail.com.
