Life @ Morningside

Rev. Baron Mullis preaching "God's Temple"

Texts:  Psalm 119:33-40 and 1 Corinthians 3:10-11,16-23

LAY READER
In keeping with the Presbyterian tenet of the priesthood of all believers, Morningside members participate regularly in worship leadership. This Sunday's lay reader is Katrina Weis.
SERVICE MUSIC
Maurice Duruflé, 1902-1986, was one of France’s leading musicians in the 20th century. He wrote organ and choral music as well as instrumental music.  His style of writing is tonal with ideas of impressionism. The modality in his music shows his love of Gregorian chant. The “Meditation” was written in 1964 and Duruflé and his wife, Marie-Madeleine, played the “Meditation” often for the church in Paris where they were organists, Sainte-Etienne-du-Mont. François Couperin, 1668-1733, was the “Master of the French Baroque.” The offertory and the postlude are from his Mass for the Convents. This music is referred to as French Classical, because of the short length of the pieces. Each piece had a particular use in the Mass. Couperin, like Duruflé, was a dedicated church musician.
SPECIAL FELLOWSHIP
Following worship, all are invited down to Fellowship Hall to view a movie celebrating our month of service - and kicking off our continued commitment to serve those in need!  The Couples Group has generously gone along with our "movie" theme in providing treats for Fellowship Hour, so be sure to visit the "concession stand" before finding a seat.  Many thanks to all those who have made the Season of Service a great event!
YOUTH SUNDAY
Morningside youth will host our first Youth Sunday in 10 years on Sunday, March 2 at 11 a.m.! Be sure to join us. (Please note that communion will be served on March 9.)
ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE
Lent begins at Morningside with our worship service and imposition of ashes on Wednesday, March 5 at 7 p.m. Child care will be available.
A ZEN WORKOUT
On Thursdays 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. The Tuesday yoga group will begin a Spring set of classes at 11 a.m. in Room 201 this Tuesday, February 25. For more information on either class, contact Pam 404.217.5420 or yogapam@bellsouth.net.
THEOLOGY ON TAP
The first Tuesday in March is Shrove Tuesday, so we are pushing Theology on Tap to the second Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m. Our host will be John Blevins (33 Beverly Road, NE, Atlanta 30309). Looking down the road, our next Theology on Tap will be three weeks later on April 1st (no fooling!).  Richard Brownlee will host, and the venue will be at Pam and Ken Sharpe's home. Details to follow.
SEASON OF SERVICE
TOUR OUTREACH LOCATIONS
Our second tour of outreaches has been rescheduled to this Tuesday, February 25, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. After meeting in Room 107, we will carpool to locations to learn more about them, visiting Journey Shelter for men and Threads clothing for children. RSVP to Melinda msandkam@morningsidepc.org to reserve your spot.
DONATE PAJAMAS FOR THREADS
We are 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.

Our annual spring Habitat build began yesterday.  Sign up on the mission bulletin board to build on one of the five remaining Saturdays. Contact shepherd Lynsley Tyler with questions lynsley@bellsouth.net.
