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.

SERVICE MUSIC
Dance II and III - American composer Calvin
Hampton was the organist at Calvary Episcopal
Church in Manhattan and became famous for offering
free Friday midnight recitals. Five Dances
for Organ was commissioned by the Holtkamp
Organ Company and later dedicated to Walter
Holtkamp and Karen McFarlane, who were
married around the premiere of this work. In
Hampton’s music one can hear the influence of
Stravinsky or Prokofiev through Hampton’s use
of rhythmic cells and mixed meter. Dance II, entitled
“At the Ballet,” is in an unusual meter of
10/8 and illustrates a dancer on pointe. Dance III,
entitled, “Those Americans,” uses a constant
rhythmic cell with a jazzy triplet influence
throughout. Calvin Hampton’s music is heard
both in recital and throughout liturgies of the
church. Hampton’s influence served to preserve
traditional worship in the United States.
- We invite those who wish
to remain seated until the postlude has ended.

SANCTUARY FLOWERS
The flowers in the sanctuary are given to the
glory of God and in memory of Doreen Ryan
Tunnell by her sons, Trenton, Spencer, and
Steven.

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 next 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.

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.

MPC YOUTH MISSION TRIP
This Saturday, 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.

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 now 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. (Specific needs:
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - 5 more drivers
for each day; Monday - 1 more afternoon driver;
Wednesday - 1 more morning driver.)

THANKS FOR DONATIONS
Many thanks for the abundant donations of
newspapers and plastic bags for Mission
Camp. The Atlanta Humane Society will be
ecstatic to get all those newspapers and the Intown
Collaborative Ministries Food Pantry is
always glad to get plastic bags. At this time, we
do not need anymore as we need to be able to
transport the donations with the kids and we
already have piles of both. Thank you for your
generosity. Don't forget that you can donate
these items directly to either organization
throughout the year.

CAR WASH
Support Mission Camp by bringing your car to
be washed on Tuesday, July 22, from 9 to
10:30 a.m. The car wash is free, but we will be
accepting donations for the Atlanta Humane
Society.

MPP
Check out summer camp at Morningside Presbyterian
Preschool. Some openings remain
for certain age groups each week of camp: July
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.

CONGRATULATIONS TO
Jeff Peters on his election to Session to fill the
balance of Bonnie Daneker’s term at our recent
congregational meeting.
