  • Children's Corner

    Our nursery is available every Sunday from 9 AM to Noon for children aged birth to 4 years old. The nursery staff is certified in Safeguarding God’s Children. The babies and toddlers have a curriculum that they follow for the little ones to start their learning of God and Jesus. The Pre-K group has their own curriculum to help them understand that God loves them just as he loved his only son, Jesus Christ.

    Our elementary group is nicknamed F.R.O.G., which stands for Fully Rely On God. We offer Sunday school for this age group from 9:30 AM to 10:15 AM. At 10:15 parents are to come and sign their children out to take them to church. In the Narthex of the church you will find activity bags with things for our young listeners to do during the service. The items in the bags follow the lectionary for the day so that the children can have many ways to hear the word. During our 10:30 AM service, we offer children’s chapel, for this age group. They will receive a sermon, then will be taken out for an activity, and brought back to you in time for the Peace.

    Our preteen group has named themselves the Gummy Smurfs. This age group is for youth 5th and 6th grade. They are too old to be with the elementary kids but not yet old enough to be with the youth group. They have their own Sunday school class most Sundays from 9:30 AM to 10:15 AM. We excuse this group at 10:15, as they are responsible enough to get over to the church for service. Most of the children in this group start participating in the acolyte ministry. It is a way for them to start becoming a part of the community. After church on Sundays, they participate in eating and fellowship with the youth group, but they have their own book study for where they are at in life.

    If you have any additional questions about any of these groups, please feel free to contact the church office at (210) 657-3328.

  • Youth Group

    The Youth Group is nicknamed C.R.E.W., which stands for Christians Ready, Equipped and Willing. This group is for youth 7th grade to 12th grade. This group volunteers to help with projects that happen around our community. They enjoy fun activities together and around the diocese. There is a Bible study that happens on Sunday morning at 9:30 AM to 10:15 AM. After church on Sundays they also participate in a book study to help them navigate through life. This group is welcome to help with ministries as they are called to and to participate in the two services on Sundays.  The focus for this group is to help the youth find their relationship with God through Jesus’ teachings. We offer mentorship, stability, love, acceptance, and knowledge.

    If you have any additional questions, contact the church office at (210) 657-3328.

  • The Brotherhood of St. Andrew

    The Brotherhood is a missionary and evangelism ministry of the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion and is the oldest evangelistic ministry of the Episcopal Church. Our goal is to bring men and boys to Jesus Christ.

    The Brotherhood was incorporated by an Act of the U. S. Congress signed May 30, 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt. That Act states, “the sole object of said corporation shall be the spread of Christ’s Kingdom among men.”

    At St. Margaret’s we meet monthly and provide not only a place of fellowship and camaraderie, but serve the church throughout the year in various service projects including grounds and building maintenance, cooking for outdoor activities and hosting the annual Pancake Supper.

  • The Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

    All Episcopal women are automatically members of the ECW. We are the women who participate in the church and are active in our community. Some of us are members of Altar Guild, United Thank Offering, Daughters of the King, Vestry, and Prayer Team. Members of ECW also volunteer for Pumpkin Patch, Fiesta Carnival, the Easter egg hunt, Haven for Hope, and have helped with our fundraising cookbooks, or any of the other numerous activities and ministries that are connected to the church. We support each other, our church, and our families. We all share a love of God and celebrate the gifts he has granted us, by serving the Church, and serving each other.
