Small Groups at St. Margaret's
Just a reminder that we are in the process of planning for a small group structure that helps us follow Jesus together. An email about this went out to everyone on our list, and for those who don't have email there are paper copies at the back of the church. Please read the letter, think and pray about it, and share your comments with anyone from the committee (Doug Sanderson, Debbie Legere, Esther Stocker, Norma Gutteridge, Tim & Marci Chesterton). A more formal survey will be going out in a couple of weeks.

Please check out our monthly announcement sheet for more upcoming events. If you have not received a copy or have changed your email address, please update your email with Tim or Melanie. Extra copies are available on the table at the back of the church.
