Life @ Morningside for July 20, 2014


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
Southern Gospel Medley - In the spirit of the oldtime
tent revivals, this group of beloved Southern
Gospel songs takes the listener back to another era,
when full-throated men and women (and children!)
would sing, at the top of their lungs, with joy. Such
favorites as Give Me That Old Time Religion, When
The Roll Is Called Up Yonder, Love Lifted Me, In
The Garden, What A Friend We Have In Jesus, Rock
Of Ages, and I'll Fly Away reflect the spirit of that
era. Mac Frampton has arranged this music from
his recollections of men's fellowship suppers back
in the '50s, when he would accompany the clamor.
God of Grace - Hymn improvisations by Paul Manz
have long been essential pieces in the organist’s
repertoire. God of Grace is an improvisation on the
hymn tune Cwm Rhondda originally composed by
John Hughes in 1907. Its ritornello form references
Neoclassicism, a movement in Western culture
which draws inspiration from “classical” culture of
Ancient Greece and Rome.
- We invite those who wish to remain seated until the
postlude has ended.

HYMN-SING SUNDAY
You are in charge of hymn selection this morning as
we have the opportunity to call out our favorites
for the congregation to sing. So get ready to page
through the hymnal for those melodies you love!

RHO READERS
Chat after worship in the Session Room today at
12:30 p.m. as the RHO Readers talk about B.A.
Shapiro’s novel The Art Forger.

MISSION CAMP
Many thanks for all the driver/chaperones making
Mission Camp happen for 35 elementary age and
youth this week (Hiking Chaperones meet for
12:15 p.m. meeting in Room 201). Please keep
staff, volunteers and mission camp attendees in
your prayers as they travel around the city of Atlanta
doing hands-on outreach. Monday evening,
some of the Mission Camp families will serve the
meal the kids prepared that afternoon at Journey.
Other destinations include Calvin Court Senior
Community, the food pantry at Intown Collaborative
Ministries, Med-Share and Morningside Nature
Preserve to name just a few. All are invited to support
Mission Camp by bringing your dirty cars to
our free car wash on Tuesday, 9-10:30 a.m. Donations
will be accepted for Atlanta Humane Society.
Thursday morning, we head to north Georgia
to hike 5 miles to the Len Foote Hike Inn for the
overnight segment of our trip. The youth will then
stay a second night for a special retreat with their
leaders. We invite everyone to attend the ice
cream social in Fellowship Hall offered by the Mission
Camp attendees next Sunday, July 27 after
worship when we will share about our week of outreach.

THURSDAY THEOLOGY
Engage with a small but lively group of members
hashing out theological terms with Baron in
his office this Thursday, July 24, at 12:30 p.m.
You’re welcome to bring a lunch.

FOOD TRUCKS
Enjoy church friends and neighbors as a variety
of food trucks come back to our campus from 5
to 8 p.m. this Thursday, July 24.

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 July 28-August 8,
there are quite a few random projects needing
attention at this time - reorganizing class supplies,
preparing new music notebooks for our
elementary age Children's Worship, and preparing
signage, crafts and games for kickoff.
Contact Melinda if you have a few hours to
give towards these efforts.

MPP
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.

SIX STAR
The Six Star Refugee Partnership will receive a
new family this summer, and we need to stock a
new apartment to welcome the family. Needs
include twin, double or queen bed frames (we
are required by law to buy new mattresses),
sofa, chairs, lamps, end tables, bedroom furniture,
etc. Volunteers are needed to help move
and set up furniture. If you have any furniture
to donate, or are interested in helping, please
contact Holly Campbell hollycampbell1@gmail.com
or 404.435.0676.

SANCTUARY FLOWERS
A flower calendar is posted on the bulletin
board in the hallway outside the Session Room,
and if you wish to give flowers in honor or in
memory of a loved one, we invite you to write
your name and phone number next to the desired
date. It is possible to share a date with
other members if you want to give one arrangement
or you may sign up alone to give both arrangements.
Contact Anna Best in the church
office office@morningsidepc.org for more information.

SAVE THE DATE
It’s not too soon to mark off October 17-19 on
your calendar and plan to get away to cool and
lovely Montreat, NC, for our sixth annual allchurch
retreat! Each year, it’s been an event
to remember for the whole family. Watch for
further details in the next couple of months.

Today, 3 and 4 year olds will learn how Eli helped young Samuel hear God in the story Samuel,
