|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.
Thursday, March 12, at 7:00 pm. All are invited to Evensong on the Feast of Gregory the Great. We honor the ancient tradition of gathering for prayer and thanksgiving at the close of the day, listening to the lessons appointed for the day, and hearing beautiful music. St. Margaret’s Choir will sing.
This is a fundraiser for the High School Mission Trip to Washington D.C. this summer. To raise money for our trip we are partnering with Star Lake Greenhouse in Auburn – selling beautiful plants. 50 % of the proceeds will go to support our mission trip! If you are interested in purchasing plants, please review the CATALOG, read the INSTRUCTIONAL LETTER, complete THIS ORDER FORM and return it with payment by Sunday, March 22. Your plants will be available for pick up on May 2nd at St. Margaret’s.
Sundays in Lent at 10:10 am. The Rev. Dr. Mark Miller, adjunct instructor at Seattle Pacific University, will examine the Christian theological concept broadly known as the Atonement, the means by which God addressed the betrayal we call sin and became reconciled with humanity. Our speaker proposes a relational and hopeful point of view of atonement theology rather than a judicial one. Feb. 22: Rudiments; March 1: Reorientation; March 8: Redemption; March 15: Recapitulation; March 22: Resolution.
Sunday, March 22, 4:30 pm. Missy and Steve Couch will teach the art of making origami cranes. You’re invited to help make new paper cranes for the Narthex, as well as for your enjoyment at home. A potluck dinner will be part of the event, so please bring food to share. All ages are invited.
This is the 28th year we have been doing our Meditations during Lent. Our Lenten Prayers are a personal response that comes from reflecting on a randomly chosen scripture. What makes these so wonderful is that they come from the heart of all of us, and all that we bring in our relationship with God. Download your copy here.
Especially for young adults and parents, but also for everyone of all ages, come to hear about planning ahead for those we love. Making a will, planning for the care of minor children, and completing a durable power of attorney and health care directives are important responsibilities for each of us. Parishioner and attorney Sam Ciappana and the rector Chris Jillard will describe what is involved and why it’s important. All this – plus refreshments and free child care (register ahead with Sonja Lindberg).
