THIS SUNDAY: Strategic Plan Update —
January 10th Coffee Hour at 11:30
Where is God calling us? How do we as a congregation live out our Baptismal Covenant “to seek and serve Christ in all persons loving your neighbor as yourself”? What are the best possible uses of our resources — financial, physical and human — as we move into the next five years?
A dedicated group of parishioners have begun looking at these questions. It’s part of a guided process in which we look at how St. Margaret’s views itself, and how we participate in our community and the world. After much assessment and discussion externally and internally, a strategic plan laying out a statement of vision, values and mission for St. Margaret’s will be presented to the Vestry with program and budget recommendations.
At Coffee Hour on Sunday the 10th at 11:30 your Wardens will discuss the Strategic Plan process and what we have learned so far. 
New Forward Day by Day's are Available
