Life @ Morningside for April 5, 2015

 

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian

Church. Dr. Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor, will be

our preacher, and Rev. Drew Stockstill, Associate

Pastor, will be our liturgist. 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-3rd grade

in Room 001; 4th-5th grade in worship.

 

SERVICE MUSIC

From the time of their first publication, the organ

symphonies of Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937)

have been recognized as masterpieces. Widor

called these works symphonies because of their

several movements and because of the symphonic

nature of the French romantic organ for which

they were written. The Symphony No. 5 and the

"gothique" (IX) seem to have been Widor's favorites.

The popularity of the "Toccata" from No. 5 is

practically unparalleled in the organ repertoire. It

is a toccata in the true sense of the word, with

brilliant figuration punctuated by full chords and a

melody in the pedals. The organ postlude is a truly

celebratory piece for Easter Sunday.

 

ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING

We join Presbyterian churches nationwide in giving

to this special offering on Easter. Please see the insert

for more information about programs and use

the enclosed envelopes for your gift (checks to MPC

with memo for OGHS). These gifts support ministries

of disaster response, refugee assistance and

community development.

 

EASTER BANNERS

The Easter banners made of batik fabrics represent

the life and light of Christ rising from death to eternal

life on Easter morning. These two banners were

made identically to bring emphasis and thanks to

Christ Jesus and the Holy Power of God on Easter

Sunday. The titles of the banners are: Blessings of

Easter; I am with you always, to the end of the age

and Alleluia, alleluia give thanks to the risen Lord.

 

THEOLOGY ON TAP

The next meeting of Theology on Tap will be hosted

by Bob Wells this Tuesday, April 7 at 7 p.m.

(1466 Lanier Place, Atlanta 30306). Baron will have

the night off, so Peter Cobb will lead the program

on the Apostles’ Creed. Join us for supper and a

good program and great fellowship. RSVP to the

church office office@morningsidepc.org.
