We make acceptance and love of people a priority as we strive to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives. We know that as Christians we may not think alike and feel alike on every issue, and so tolerance, openness and inclusiveness have developed as part of our community culture. We have become the home for people from every faith community. Professional people as well as artists, retired people as well as teens, feel equally loved and cared for at St. Margaret’s. Come, taste and see what God is doing in our midst. You will be enriched and blessed, and so will we.
St. Margaret’s has grown from twenty members in 1984 to over one hundred. Our
members are interested in and involved with many local, diocesan and international
mission projects. We are glad you are here and we hope you will join us regularly. Listed
below is a little information about St. Margaret of Scotland, after whom our church was
named. With considerable zeal, Queen Margaret sought to change what she considered
to be old fashioned and careless practices among the Scottish clergy. But, Margaret’s
energies were not limited to reformation of formal Church practices. She encouraged the
founding of schools, hospitals, and orphanages, and used her influence with King
Malcolm to help her improve the quality of life among the isolated Scottish clans.
Together, Margaret and her husband rebuilt the monastery of Iona and founded
Dunfermline Abbey, under the direction of Benedictine monks.
“The purpose of St. Margaret’s Church and her members is to
know Jesus Christ better through prayer, the study of the Bible,
the giving and receiving of the Sacraments and in our personal
relationships, and, to make Him and His redemptive love known
in all the world.”
The mission of St. Margaret’s Church is to joyfully and without
hesitation celebrate and embrace God’s Love through worship,
fellowship, service and sacrifice.
