|Welcome to St. Margaret’s
Wherever you are in your faith journey, you’ll find a warm welcome at St. Margaret’s. Whether you are an intentional seeker or merely passing through … whether you’re a cradle Episcopalian or someone just wondering about faith, we invite you to come and find a supportive and safe place to grow and explore.
From Sunday, June 19, through Sunday, September 4, worship services on Sunday mornings will be at 8:00 am and 10:00 am. Jazz Compline will take a break for the summer, returning on September 11.
“Feed My Sheep” support Backpack Meals for Kids
Many of the high school summer school students in Bellevue rely on the school providing their breakfasts and lunches. What happens to them when the weekend comes and Monday seems a long time away? Providing food for these eligible students is a ministry that St. Margaret’s is piloting. Being nourished allows these teens to be ready for their classes and gives them a boost in working toward their potential. We will be providing a package of food these kids can fix themselves over the weekends in July.
Thanks to all for the great support of our new ministry. All our needs have been met! Food should be brought to the church by Sunday, June 26th; please mark your items for Backpack Meals. Please drop the food off at the church any Sunday until June 26. Questions? Contact Sunshine Pegues.

During the month of September we host a shelter for 35 men. We provide them with a warm, safe place to sleep and be nourished with 3 healthy meals each day. Right now, we need your help by preparing, serving and sharing meals with the men as well as shopping for groceries and other supplies for September 1st through 13th. St. Madeline Sophie and Holy Cross Lutheran will also share in this caring ministry, covering the rest of September, from the 14th to the 30th. You can sign up here to help with meal preparation or you can sign up here to help shop for the groceries and supplies.
