Life@Morningside for February 9, 2014

Baron Mullis preaching, "Getting the Right pH Balance"

Texts: 1 Corinthians 2:1-16; Matthew 5:13-20

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY...Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. Please complete the information in the Friendship Pad at the end of the pews and pass the pads down and back again during the Concerns portion of worship. Worship notebooks and books for children are located in the library. Nursery for infants and toddlers is in Room 105; 2 year olds are in Room 012. Children ages 3-10 are invited to leave after the Peace of Christ for special classes: Threes and fours - Room 011; K-1st grade - Room 003; 2nd-3rd grade - Room 001; 4th-5th grade -  Room 005.
SERVICE MUSIC...All the music in worship today is by American composers. "Jesus Loves Me" first appeared as a poem in the novel, "Say and Seal," written by Anna Bartlett Warner in 1859. The tune was written in 1862 by William Bradbury, after finding the poem in the novel. Bradbury added the chorus, "Yes, Jesus Loves Me." After publication the song became one of the most popular Christian hymns in churches around the world. Austin Lovelace, 1919-2010, often called the Dean of American Church Music, wrote the arrangement this morning.
The text, "Peace in our Time, O Lord," was written by Betty Jo Corum early in 1970. It addresses ideas dealing with the unrest in the USA in the late 1960's. The tune, PAX IAM, was written by Milburn Price and included in the Baptist Hymnal, 1975 edition. To my knowledge this hymn has never appeared in another hymnal. Craig Phillips, b. 1961, wrote this arrangement early in his career. Today he is considered one of the most important composers of sacred organ and choral music in our country.
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING...There will be a congregational meeting following worship today. The purpose of this meeting is to hear the budget approved by the Session and to vote on terms of call for the senior pastor. Child care continues.
SOUPER BOWL OF CARING...2014 is starting off as a great year for caring, if not so great for the Broncos. Our youth collected over $800 after worship last Sunday. This offering supports the Atlanta Community Food Bank in its work to help hungry Georgians.
A ZEN WORKOUT...On February 13 at 11 a.m., in Room 201, you are invited to join veteran Yoga teacher and personal trainer Pam Sharpe for gentle training and conditioning. Using small free weights and isometrics, we will incorporate Yoga poses and breathing techniques. For more information contact Pam 404.217.5420 or yogapam@bellsouth.net.
COUPLES GROUP...On Friday, February 14, everyone is invited to gather with the Couples Group at the home of Jim and Pat Antenucci (5420 Trentham Court, Dunwoody) at 7 p.m. The main course will be provided. Please bring a side or dessert and your favorite beverage. We will collect non-perishable food items for the Intown Collaborative Ministries. RSVP to Kathy Bremer kdbremer@bellsouth.net.
LGBT & FRIENDS...The LGBT & Friends meeting canceled due to the January ice storm will be held in Fellowship Hall Tuesday, February 18, at 7 p.m.
After dinner, Baron will lead the discussion on "Marriage Equality in the Church." All are welcome. RSVP to lgbtandfirends@morningsidepc.org.
OUR HOUSE PRESCHOOL...Our House is a Decatur preschool that serves children facing homelessness. A great way to participate in this outreach is to attend their fundraiser at Piedmont Estate and Gardens on Saturday, February 22, at 6:30 p.m. The evening will include dinner, drinks, entertainment and a silent/live auction and wine/whisky tasting. Visit  www.ourhouse ga.org to purchase tickets. MPC Young Adults are especially invited to volunteer at the event as a service activity. Sign up with Katye Watts katyemae@gmail.com.

SEASON OF SERVICE...is a month of challenging you and your friends to participate in the variety of mission work MPC is involved with. Find time to check out a new outreach or bring an old friend or new member with you as you help out - meet the Plus 1 challenge!  MPC hopes you will get connected while helping those in need.
MPC OUTREACH T-SHIRT

TOUR OUTREACH LOCATIONS

JOURNEY
Many thanks to the Young Adults for providing the meal for the men at Journey this evening! (The children of MPC also made two dishes during their outreach time this morning.)
VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT CARDS
We invite you to donate a $10 gift card to CVS, Target, Publix, etc., as a Valentine’s gift for the women at Shearith Israel Shelter for Women. Place the gift cards in the bag on the mission bulletin board by today, February 9 so they can be delivered with love - and cards made by kids - in time for February 14.
DONATE PAJAMAS FOR THREADS
Starting next Sunday, February 16, we will be collecting new pajamas, underwear and socks for children served by the ministry of Threads. This outreach provides a shopping environment for children of all ages for gently used clothing. Every child also gets a week's worth of new pajamas, underwear and socks on their visit. So help us supply these items and don't forget sizes for older children too. Place items in basket in Welcome Center through Tuesday, March 4.
BINGO WITH SENIORS ON PRESIDENTS' DAY
Elementary-age children are invited to a service outing from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Presidents' Day. Chaperones/drivers needed. We will meet at MPC at 11:30 (with our own lunch) and plan songs to share, then carpool to Calvin Court to sing and lead Bingo with seniors. RSVP to Melinda today.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AT MORNINGSIDE

SUNDAY MORNING SEASON OF SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES AT 9:45 A.M.
MPC and the Mission of God in the World—Room 201
Next Sunday, February 16 Drew Stockstill will lead the adult education class in synthesizing what we have learned so far and asking questions that will help us discern how the Holy Spirit is already at work at Morningside, calling us to engage the global church in God's mission in the world. We will examine new models for global missions and see if we might reclaim the word "Missions" for what God is doing in and through us today. Drew served in Kenya with the Outreach Foundation and the Presbyterian Church of East Africa. Meanwhile, children will be in Room 001, assembling non-perishable lunches for Bread for the Journey.
CHILDREN’S CLASSES...The Preschool Class will hear A Little Lunch and learn how a boy helped Jesus feed a great crowd. Elementary Classes will read Matthew 6:25-34 in which Jesus teaches his followers to trust in God's care for them.
