Worship at St. Margaret’s is liturgical and sacramental.  That means our worship service follows a pattern based in ancient and beautiful traditions, the people participate in the prayers, and we celebrate Holy Eucharist (Communion) every Sunday.  The worship service includes music, Bible readings, and a thought-provoking sermon. 

We like musical variety at St. Margaret’s:  if you prefer an upbeat contemporary band, come to the 8:45 a.m. service.  If you prefer inspiring traditional hymns with choir and organ, come to the 11:00 a.m. service. 
After the service, feel free to join in coffee and conversation or take a tour of the church. 

In between the 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services, you will also have the option of attending The 10:10 Adult Education or you can observe children’s activities. 

When you are ready to head for home, we hope you feel warmly welcomed and spiritually refreshed.

In between the 8:45 am and 11 am services, educational activities are provided for children and youth.

All Christians are welcome to participate in Communion.
