This Sunday, May 21st, we will be joining churches worldwide in the Global Day of Prayer to End Famine. If you cannot join us, please say a special prayer for:
• Pray for the 20 million children, women and men who are facing famine.
• Pray for children suffering from hunger.
• Pray for an end to violence.
• Pray for the humanitarians and communities on the frontline.
• Pray for the world to take action.

On Sunday May 28 @ 12 noon we will be having a Building Expansion Plan conversation meeting. Lunch will be provided by the hospitality committee so please sign up on the sheet in the foyer if you are planning to attend. The purpose of this meeting is simply to allow a safe space to discuss any misgivings and questions you may have regarding our building expansion plan .

As a follow up to our first Ministry Planning Day, we would like to invite you to do two things:

1.  Read through the report that Kathi Kilgour prepared from our day and see if there is anything you'd like to add. This report was sent out by email, and there are also some hard copies on the table in the foyer. Use the categories we used - i.e. the four areas of Worship, Discipleship, Community, and Mission, and the three questions "What's going well?" "What are you anxious about?" and "What dreams and ideas do you have?"
2. Come out to St. Margaret's on Wednesday May 31st from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. when Richard will be facilitating the continuation of the process - moving forward toward a specific plan to help us grow in discipleship and mission. There will be pizza served starting at 6pm, so you are welcome to come early and have dinner before the meeting starts at 7pm. There is a sign up sheet on the table in the front foyer.

Family BBQ and Games Night on Friday June 2nd starting at 5:30pm. Weather permitting we will have a BBQ and some fun outdoor activities for all, including planting our garden. We will move it inside if raining (not the garden J). There is a sign up sheet on the table in the foyer.

St. Margaret’s Sunday School will be celebrating the last month of our school year by combining classes to learn together about all things Prayer. This will comprise the weeks of Sundays June 4, 11, 18 and 25. In this lesson series, all units will be individual so children can drop in anytime but we will review what we've learned in prior weeks as we go.
