Life @ Morningside for June 29, 2014

Baron Mullis preaching “Fear the Lord”
Texts: Romans 6:12-23; Genesis 22:1-14

 

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 Room 001.

SERVICE MUSIC
Praeludium in e-moll - Nicolas Bruhns (1665-
1697) was a prized pupil of Dietrich Buxtehude.
From his short lifetime, only five extant
organ works remain. The Praeludium in e moll
is composed in the Stylus phantasticus style,
which is the freest and least dependent type of
composition. This “fantastic style” demonstrates
the performers’ ability to interpret the
work through the pushing and pulling of
tempi, conveying stronger and weaker harmonies.
The Praeludium’s structure alternates between
Toccata and Fugue sections allowing for
registration changes and shift in affekt or
mood.

SANCTUARY FLOWERS
The flowers in the sanctuary are given in gratitude
to the glory of God and in celebration of
the 80th birthday of Gail Peters by Jeff Peters
and Michael Siedschlag.

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING
There will be a brief congregational meeting
following worship today. The purpose of this
meeting is twofold: first to fill the vacancy on
the session created by Bonnie Daneker's resignation
due to moving. Second, the congregation
will vote on new bylaws, as required by
the new Form of Government enacted by the
Presbyterian General Assembly in 2012. Child
care will continue. Copy of the bylaws are
available on our website and at the church.

VOLUNTEERING FOR CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS
We continue to give thanks for all the incredible
support we received for Vacation Bible
School, and for the folks that have already
started signing up for Mission Camp. As you
can see, the summer is not a slow time for
children's programming at MPC - especially
with Sunday School Kick Off being the second
Sunday in August. If anyone has 2-4 hours any
day during the summer, there is quite a bit of
random projects needing attention at this time
- reorganizing class supplies, sorting and packing
VBS props, stocking new closets in preschool
age Sunday School room, preparing
new music notebooks for our elementary age
Children's Worship. Contact Melinda if you
have a few hours to give towards these efforts.

DRIVERS/CHAPERONES NEEDED FOR MISSION CAMP
There are 17 kids registered for elementary
age Mission Camp and 17 more for Youth
Track Mission Camp July 21-25. That totals
34 attendees that we must transport to off-site
outreach projects Monday-Wednesday. Check
your calendars NOW and let Melinda know if
there is a day (or half day) that you can drive/
chaperone to help us make this hands-on experience
a reality for the children and youth of
our church. We must secure volunteers in
June
so that we have time to review our Child
Protection Policy before the actual camp - any
off-site volunteers are considered lead volunteers,
which includes reading of CPP, one
hour training video on-line, and background
check including driving record.

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: 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) and one
opening for pre-K. As you consider when to
start your child in preschool, keep in mind
that once you are part of the preschool community,
your child has a spot for subsequent
years. Twos classes are often filled with current
students before we reach open enrollment.

CLIFTON WELCOME HOME BASKETS
During the summer, MPC gathers items to
make five "Welcome Home" baskets for graduates
of Clifton Sanctuary Ministries. These men
receive these laundry baskets full of practical
items such as toiletries and dry food to help
them continue on their journey away from
homelessness. Please visit our display in the
Welcome Center and claim a requested item or
two to return by Sunday, July 13. It's as easy as
buying an extra box of pasta on your next grocery
run! Thank you for all your help. Please
contact David Johnston dmjohnst@gmail.com
for any questions.

MPC YOUTH MISSION TRIP
On July 12, seven youth, who are rising eighth
graders, will travel to Government Street Presbyterian
Church in Mobile, Alabama. They have
signed up for a week of mission and service on
the bay through July 18. Please keep them in
your prayers.

Save the Date—Sunday, July 13!
MPC member Pam Sharpe invites you
