Life @ Morningside for June 21, 2015

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian

Church. Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor,

will be our preacher, and Bill Humphries

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-2nd

graders in Room 001; 3rd-5th graders are in

Room 005.

 

SERVICE MUSIC

Today’s postlude comes from George Frederick

Handel’s Op. 4. A set of six organ concerti written

in London between 1735 and 1736, they

were later published in 1738. These chamber

organ works, originally written to be musical interludes

between oratorios, would begin a new

model of instrumentation for future composers.

In our time, these works are played on larger instruments

such as Morningside’s organ. You will

hear dialogue between the ripieno sections,

played by the full orchestra, and the concertino,

played by a smaller group of soloists.

 

YOUTH MISSION TRIP TO NEW ORLEANS

Bright and early this morning 17 youth and 4

chaperones departed for a week long mission

trip to New Orleans where they will work with

Project Homecoming, an organization which

helps those still recovering from Hurricane

Katrina. Please pray for our youth, their families

and all those they will encounter on their journey.

 

SING WITH THE CHOIR THANK YOU

Thanks again to Emilee Terry, Kathy Bremer,

Mac Frampton, Link Marx, Bill Southwood, and

Leigh Martin. The choir and I had a fabulous

time making music with all of you. - Mason

Copeland

VBS THANKS

We can’t do it without many, many volunteers

and donations. Thanks for loaning your

luggage, donating snacks, designing t-shirts,

taking pictures, working in the nursery,

serving snacks, leading a group all week and

so much more! Also, a special thanks to all

the church staff and our VBS staff - Elisabeth

Copeland, Amy Howell, Sydney Kroner,

Alli Lee and Taylor Morton for being a huge

part of the week. 55 kids had a fabulous

time traveling Around the World in 5 days -

learning through Bible stories to give what

you can, help the sick, share what you have,

love your neighbor and tell everyone about

God! (Don’t forget to pick up any luggage

you loaned us from Room 003.)

 

MISSION CAMP UP NEXT

With 18 attending this year’s Mission

Camp, July 20-24, we will need 3-4 drivers

per day to make it to our outreach locations.

Contact Melinda today to let her

know which day(s) - full day or morning or

afternoon you would be able to help us

out. The first morning, Monday, July 20,

we will be here at MPC, but need two more

chaperones (no driving required). These

roles are all lead volunteers which requires

background and driving checks, so please

sign up early so we can get everyone

set. See our Mission Camp bulletin board

across from the Session Room 103 for more

detailed needs.

 

YOGA

June is here, and we have proceeded into

our summer Yoga and Weights sessions.

There is still time to join the group, though.

For more information, contact Pam Sharpe

yogapam@bellsouth.net. The class will have

a long vacation for the month of August in

order to start refreshed in September.

 

CLIFTON WELCOME HOME BASKETS

It’s that time of year again that we collect

household items that make up the Welcome

Home Baskets for the men of Clifton Sanctuary

Ministries. The items will be collected

over the next several weeks at which point

the baskets will be assembled by this year’s

Mission Camp attendees. There is a bulletin

board at the entry way with slips of paper

listing the items needed. Simply take the

slips for the items you wish to provide and

return the items by July 12. If you have any

questions, feel free to contact David Johnston
