Our Mission

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. 

Our Story

St. Margaret's was founded in 1984 by a group of about twenty people who saw potential for a new church in the fast-growing community of Boiling Springs.   In the past three decades we moved from a rented storefront to a one-room worship space to a multi-use facility on Boiling Springs Highway where we worship, study, and host social events.
