Outreach Ministry is a cornerstone of St.Margaret's

Here are some of the many ways we help our community...

- Community Faith Garden is a place where we prepare, plant, and gather delicious organic vegetables. The food grown is shared with our community partners who feed the homeless.

Love gardening?? Please contact Brad Martin at 571-0393-8499 or or Beth Martin at 619-495-8454 or

- Fill a Bag for Bill - This is a weekly ministry in memory of our friend Bill Mehr who dedicated his life to help the less fortunate. Every week we collect items that go to the Bill Mehr Drop in Shelter. Items listed in the newsletter each week are simply a suggestion and other donations are welcomed.


Hilda Barg Homeless Prevention Center Share the love of Christ by providing meals and fellowship to those in need at this family emergency shelter.

Throughout the year we prepare, serve, and share meals with the Hilda Barg residents. Those who participate find this time extremely rewarding.

We'd be happy to talk with you about volunteering. Please contact Ranelle Nadeau at 571-331-7099 or or Gregg and Jean Reynolds at 703-494-8566 or

- Operation Turkey-ACTS Operation Turkey 2017. Time is short this year! Let’s beat last year’s record of over 900lbs. and $500 in monetary donations. It is time to fill a bag so others can enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal. We have a wonderful opportunity to help those less fortunate in our community. It is easy to do! Pick up a bag at the back of the sanctuary. The grocery list is stapled on the bag. Return the filled bags to church no later than Tuesday October 10. The Thanksgiving staples and $ 10.00 gift cards toward the purchase of a turkey will be delivered to ACTS. Monetary donations are also accepted and go towards the purchase of a turkey for each family. Please make checks payable to St. Margaret’s and note on the memo line “Operation Turkey.” If you have any questions, please contact Ranelle Nadeau.
