Hospitality

Our church family knows the importance of hospitality, in part because every one of our current members was welcomed into St. Margaret's  from some other town, parish, or denomination.   Some of us were born and raised Episcopalian, but the majority found their way here from other traditions: Evangelical, Roman Catholic, mainstream Protestant.  Whatever your religious background, or lack of one, whether you join us for worship or for sharing food and fellowship, whatever your politics, education, income or sexual orientation you will find a welcome at St. Margaret's.

Reaching Out

The kind of love that Jesus calls us  to is not just a feeling, it is action.   Again and again, he points us to those who are most in need, most vulnerable, and often most overlooked.  As individuals and as a group, people at St. Margaret's answer the call by giving time, money, and energy to those who are being helped by Upstate Family Resource Center, Mobile Meals, the Children's Advocacy Center. We are always looking for new opportunities to show our neighbors the  kind of love that Christ shows to us.

Reaching In

We are all members of one body--the body of Christ--and each member gives high priority to looking after all the others.   As a close-knit church family we share each other's joys and support each other in times of trouble with prayers, visits, meals, whatever can be helpful.   

It's a family that's always glad to make room for more. 

Gathering

Our life together is organized around Sunday worship, but another good way to get acquainted with us is to join us for one of the many gatherings bringing us together with each other and with the community.   To name a few: the annual oyster roast; monthly breakfast gatherings of the Episcopal Church Women, our monthly men's prayer breakfast; Halloween Trunk or Treat, and spontaneous outings for music, food, and fun.
