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, fours, and fives - Room 011; K-1st grade -
Room 003; 2nd-3rd grade - in worship at 8:30, in
Room 001 at 11:00; 4th-5th grade - in worship
for both services.

EASTER BANNERS
The Easter banners made of batik fabrics represent
the life and light of Christ rising from death to
eternal life on Easter morning. These two banners
were made identically to bring emphasis and
thanks to Christ Jesus and the Holy Power of God
on Easter Sunday. The titles of the banners are:
Blessings of Easter; I am with you always, to the end
of the age and Alleluia, alleluia give thanks to the
risen Lord.

ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING
Today, consider joining with other Presbyterians
by contributing an offering to One Great Hour of
Sharing. In Mark 12, Jesus explains that the two
most important commandments are to love God
with all our heart and to love our neighbors as we
love ourselves. Through One Great Hour of Sharing,
the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) responds to
these commandments by helping our neighbors in
their time of need. Whether we’re offering relief
in the wake of a storm, providing food or access to
clean water, or assisting in the empowerment of
our marginalized brothers and sisters, One Great
Hour of Sharing is an annual opportunity for us to
show our love globally to our neighbors in a tangible
way. Write OGHS on your check’s memo line,
so we can continue to care for all of God’s children.
See insert and offering envelope.
