Stewardship Initiative
Please remember to return your ‘statement of intent’ form by Sunday December 3rd. This information is extremely helpful in planning the budget for 2018. If you did not receive a copy by email, there are paper copies on the table in the foyer, or contact Melanie and she will resend to you by email. In the past week we have had about 15 responses, so thanks to those who responded so quickly!

St. Margaret’s has a ‘Discretionary’ fund which is used by Tim from time to time when the church is approached by individuals in need of some kind. We like to keep this fund at around $300, but over the last couple of years it has been decreasing. If you would like to donate to this fund, please include your donation in the offering plate and mark it for “Discretionary Fund”.
