Life @ Morningside for March 22, 2015

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian

Church. Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor, will be our

preacher; Drew Stockstill, Associate Pastor, will

be our liturgist; and Daisy Ottmann will be our

lay reader. 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 in the library. Nursery for infants and

toddlers is in Room 105; 2-3 year olds are in Room

012. Children ages 2-10 are invited to leave after

the Peace of Christ for special classes: Fours and

fives in Room 011; K-1st grade in Room 001; 2nd-

3rd grade in Room 003; 4th-5th grade in

Room 005.

 

SERVICE MUSIC

Girolamo Frescobaldi wrote his most accomplished

collection of organ works, Fiori musicali in 1635. It

contains three Mass settings. Frescobaldi's Kyrie and

Christe versets are settings of Gregorian melodies:

the three masses use melodies of Mass XI (Kyrie Orbis

factor), Mass IV (Cunctipotens genitor), and Mass

IX (Cum iubilo), respectively. The chant flows in

long note values either in the same voice throughout,

accompanied by various counterpoints, or is

distributed among voices.

 

GLORIOUS DAY

What a glorious time it was last Sunday during worship

seeing everyone bring their pledges to the communion

table for our Standing and Serving for

Generations capital campaign! Baron’s remarks

during his message were spot on for what this campaign

signifies in the life of our church and if you

were unable to be present you should definitely go

to the website and listen to what he had to say. We

will be reporting on the progress of the campaign in

the coming days and encourage those of you who

have not yet gotten your pledges in to submit them

as soon as you can.

 

WOMEN’S ROUNDTABLE

Tomorrow, March 23 at 6:30 p.m. our speaker will

structure and support to help them succeed in academics
