Life @ Morningside for April 19, 2015

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian

Church. Cade Lawson, Lucy Grant, and Taylor

Morton, MPC Youth, will deliver homilies

today, and additional youth will be lay readers.

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

worship.

 

YOUTH SUNDAY

Today is Youth Sunday and that truly is something

to celebrate! Four years ago, we had four

youth who were aging out of children’s programs.

We knew we needed to do something—

and with a major gift from Jackie Cleveland,

whose memorial we just celebrated, we started

our youth program. Look how far it’s come!

 

BAPTISM THIS SUNDAY

This morning Mackenzie Gorman, daughter of

Ryan and Michelle Gorman, will receive the sacrament

of baptism.

 

YOGA AND WEIGHTS

Spring Yoga at Morningside will begin its

4th year this Tuesday, April 21 in Room 201 at

11 a.m.! And its complement, Weights to the

Oldies, will begin Thursday, April 23. Please

join teacher Pam Sharpe and her wonderful students

for all the fun and benefits that yoga and

weight training can bring. For questions, please

contact Pam Sharpe yogapam@bellsouth.net.

 

LGBT & FRIENDS

The next meeting of LGBT & Friends is coming

up this Tuesday, April 21. The evening's guest

speaker will be John Blevins who will discuss The

impact of the U.S. Global HIV Policy on LGBT communities

in Africa. All are welcome to join us for fellowship,

dinner and an enriching discussion from

7 to 9 p.m. at the home of Peter and Carolyn

Cobb (1150 St. Charles Place, 30306). RSVP to

lgbtandfriends@morningsidepc.org.

 

WOMEN'S ROUNDTABLE

We're putting a Mexican twist on things this

month! Members and friends are invited to join

us for an evening of food and fun at El Taco

(1186 North Highland Avenue 30306) on Monday,

April 27 at 6:30 p.m. RSVP to Sarah

Brownlee at rsbrownlee1046@att.net.

 

WE INVITE YOU TO SHARE

If you have some good news in the family, we

would love to hear about it. We currently share

the joy of welcoming a new member to the family,

but we would also like to know if you have received

an award, been appointed to a committee,

been in a recent production of a play, opera, etc.

You get the idea! Please send your information

to Anna Best in the church office

office@morningsidepc.org. Your good news will be

shared with the congregation as part of the “Did

You Know…” portion of the weekly eNews.

 

Food Trucks Return

Jungle Jam, will be Saturday, April 25, from

toddler area for younger kids and an obstacle

course bounce house for older kids. Come join the

fun! Jungle Jam is the preschool’s main spring fundraiser,

can’t make it a success without your help! We hope

you will bring your own family, spread the word,
