Life @ Morningside for July 13, 2014

James Klotz preaching “Birthright”
Texts: Psalm 133; Genesis 25:19-34

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
Prelude in Classic Style - American composer and
organist Gordon Young (1919-1998) won many
awards for his choral and organ compositions. Of
all Young’s works, Prelude in Classic Style is a well
known tune and is standard in any organist’s repertoire.
This prelude is composed in the 18th century
classical style with its light dance-like tune and
choral accompaniment.
Procesión Alegre - Garry A. Cornell, an American
composer, is known for his church music throughout
the U.S. Cornell was trained at Trinity Lutheran
Seminary and currently serves as music director at
St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Columbus,
Ohio. His Procesión Alegre is a beautiful trumpet tune
often heard as a processional for a bridal party. The
first time I heard this piece was at the Cathedral Basilica
in St. Louis, MO. The organist used a large
reed stop in the gallery accompanied by the great
organ located at the opposite end of its massive
nave.
- We invite those who wish to remain seated until the
postlude has ended.

GUEST PREACHER
James Klotz, a Princeton Theological Seminary student
and Morningside member, is our guest
preacher this morning. He is in Atlanta this summer
doing his Clinical Pastoral Education at Emory University
Hospital. We are proud of James for following
God's call and grateful for his sharing the Word
with us this morning.

SANCTUARY FLOWERS
The flowers in the sanctuary are given to the glory
of God and in celebration of Pam Sharpe’s recital
this afternoon by Ken Sharpe.

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
laundry baskets full of practical items such as toiletries
and non-perishable pantry food to help them
continue on their journey away from homelessness.
Please visit our display in the Welcome Center to
claim a remaining item or two to return today, 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.

VOLUNTEER FOR CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS
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
Yesterday, seven youth, who are rising eighth graders,
traveled to Government Street Presbyterian
Church in Mobile, Alabama. They are participating
in a week of mission and service on the bay through
July 18. 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 today
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 - 2 more
drivers for each day; Monday - 1 more afternoon
driver; Wednesday - 1 more morning driver.)

MONTHLY MEAL FOR MEN AT JOURNEY
We are excited to have the elementary age
Mission Camp attendees preparing the meal
for 30 men at Journey on Monday, July 21
(instead of serving on our regular second Sunday
- this evening). Mission Camp families
will be invited to join shepherds Tamara Nix
and Bryan Smith in serving that evening.

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
21 and 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.

Christian Education at Morningside

ADULT CLASSES

might not have heard in church, and looking closer at some stories you thought you knew.
Join us Sunday mornings in Room 201 at 9:45 a.m.

CHILDREN’S CLASSES
Preschoolers will talk about how God hears our prayers as they listen to the story A Baby for Hannah.
