Youth

    Server's Guild: The Office of Server is an important ministry within St. Margaret of Scotland Church. It provides a wonderful opportunity for young people, in particular, to participate in a fuller way of the work of the Church. Serving enables the participant to become closely allied to the liturgical life of the Church.

     St. Margaret of Scotland Sunday School under the direction of Mary Hale: The Sunday School program runs in conjunction with the school year and in co-ordination with the 10:30 service. This program has grown over the past several years and is a vibrant part of our church community. The Sunday School is using the Whole People of God curriculum. The curriculum follows the Revised Common Lectionary, so the children are exploring the same scripture downstairs as the adults are studying upstairs. The children also do active things as well as crafts to satisfy the learning needs of all children The fourth Sunday of each month is a Family Service. In December an all ages Advent Event was held with food, crafts and a visit from St. Nicholaus. Katherine Osborne and Vanessa Burns spearheaded a delightful pageant at Christmas time. Parishioners are asked to be observers for the Sunday School as well as there is a need for more teachers.

    A new Youth Group was started at St. Margaret of Scotland in 2013. This has become quite popular among the 13-15 year old teens who are connected with our church and their friends. The Youth Group meet approximately every second Sunday at the rectory and have outings from time to time. The Youth have been involved in the Good Friday Children's service, a coffee hour, and two have attended the Diocesan Youth Conference. Regular meetings include an ice breaker, getting to know you activity, or check in of some sort. Discussions range on various topice. There is a time a prayer, eating dinner together, and a game in the church building. The Youth Group is under the direction of Charles Bull, Michelle Bull, Kristin Petite, and Blake Wright.

    Family Service: The Family Service at St. Margaret of Scotland is held on the fourth Sunday of each month in which the children and youth do the readings for the day, are the greeters, and as well as lead the music ministry under the direction of Youth
