Family Fellowship

Several Family Fellowship events are hosted throughout the year to connect children and their families with others in the congregation and community.

The Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper has grown to include wearing your pajamas (if you're a kid)! All are welcome the night before Ash Wednesday each year from 5:30-6:45 p.m. This year it was Tuesday, March 5, 2019 with more than a hundred in attendance! Pancakes are the main course, along with entertainment as we prepare for the season of Lent to begin. Children are also invited to bring new pajamas, underwear and/or socks for the Threads program which provides new and gently used clothes for children in need.

The Easter Egg Hunt (Better known as the “Running of the Eggs” ) is a fun tradition for all ages! FOR THIS YEAR, the date has changed to the Saturday before Palm Sunday, April 13, 2019 at 10:00 a.m! The hunt will be on the front lawn of the church. Come between 9:30 and 10:00 for coffee, juice and breakfast nibbles. Children can decorate cookies during this time.
        The Egg Hunt will happen at 10:00, rain or shine - dress accordingly!!

Each spring, Morningside Presbyterian Preschool hosts a Spring Fling here at the church. This fun-filled event includes train and pony rides, a cake walk, bouncies, face painting and more! Come out to enjoy the festivities while supporting this annual fundraiser. The date for the Spring Fling this year is Saturday, April 27.

The Church hosts Food Truck Thursdays every few months during the warmer time of the year - a fun time for families to gather, have some casual food and fellowship, while children play and socialize.

The Children's Christmas Pageant is peformed in December in the Sanctuary, followed by the Chili Cook-Off.
