Life @ Morningside for June 1, 2014

Baron Mullis, preaching “Strange Blessings”
Texts: 1 Peter 4:12-14, 5:6-11; Psalm 68:1-10, 32-35
 

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-2nd grade-Room 003; 3rd-5th grade-in worship.

WELCOME TO MASON COPELAND
The flowers in the sanctuary today are given to the
glory of God and in thanksgiving for the ministry of Mason
Copeland from the choir at Episcopal Church of All Saints,
Indianapolis, Indiana. Please come to Fellowship Hall
following worship for a reception to meet Mason and
Elisabeth Copeland.

SERVICE MUSIC
Johann Sebastian Bach is known to be the pinnacle of
the high Baroque era. With more than 1,000 liturgical
compositions during his lifetime, his music is still widely
used today. The Prelude in G Major, BWV 541, is a hybrid
model of the earlier Concerto Grosso, where musical material is
passed between a soloist or concertino and a larger orchestra
or ripieno. This is most likely passed down to
Bach through one of his mentors, Antonio Vivaldi.
The prelude begins with a virtuosic solo (concertino),
which explores the entire range of the keyboard and
finally extends to a high G introducing the other
voices and pedal (ripieno). Its ¾ time signature and
repeated note character with sixteenth note motifs
suggest a light minuet dance quality.

YOUTH TRIPS
This morning we will commission our high school
youth attending Montreat Youth Conference
(June 1-7) and middle and high school youth
attending Government St. Presbyterian Church
Mission Camp in Mobile (July 12-18). The Youth
Conference is a great place for youth to explore their
identity in a Christian community, and the conference
aims to challenge and empower participants to
discover their gifts so that together we can reach out
and be the church in the world. The Urban Mission
Camp is hands on work for our youth.

MISSION CAMP
Calling all those who have just completed
2nd-4th grade! Youth Track Mission Camp
is fully enrolled with rising middle and high
schoolers. We now need YOU to help us complete
enrollment for regular Mission Camp. All forms
(available on website and at church) are due with
payment today.

 

 

HOW CAN I HELP? In order to make VBS and Mission
Camp happen for the children in our community,

Campers to take on their outreach visits to the Atlanta

Ministries. Bring clean rectangle milk or orange

They range from preparing the snack, to helping in

CONCERT TO BENEFIT WOMEN'S SHELTER
Congregation Shearith Israel (1190 University
Ave. 30306) welcomes all to a free concert by

women's shelter. Following the concert there will
be a silent auction and hors d'oeuvres. No RSVP
needed. MPC partners with the Shearith Israel
Shelter for Women each year by providing evening
volunteers.

MPP
Are you planning to be in town for the Fourth
of July, and seeking something for little ones to
do in the days before the holiday? Check out
summer camp at Morningside Presbyterian
Preschool. Some openings also remain
throughout other weeks of camp: June 2, 9,
23, and July 7, 14, 21, 28. To enroll your preschooler,
contact MPP Director Sarah Tomaka
mpp@morningsidepc.org. For the next school
year, there are still openings for toddlers (who
must be 15 months old by Sept. 1).

FOOD TRUCK THURSDAYS
The eclectic and changing variety of food vendors
will be back the fourth Thursday beginning
at 5 p.m. and serving until 8 p.m.
throughout the good weather. The playground
welcomes the kids while members are having
great conversations with each other and with
the vast number of neighborhood visitors. Next
date is June 26, then July 24 and August 28.

YOGA
Yoga classes will return to Room 201 at
11 a.m. beginning Tuesday, June 10, and
Thursday, June 12 at 11 a.m. sees the return of
the class that instructor Pam Sharpe now calls
“Oldies with Weights”. We think she’s referring
to the fun CDs she plays during the gentle
but effective toning workout—not the participants!
Six-week sessions cost $65. For more
information, reach out to Pam
yogapam@bellsouth.net.
