Life @ Morningside for July 5, 2015


WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian

Church. Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor,

will be our preacher, and Daisy

Ottmann, Clerk of Session, 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-5th graders in worship.

 

SERVICE MUSIC

Dance II and III - American composer Calvin

Hampton was the organist at Calvary Episcopal

Church in Manhattan and was well known for

offering free Friday midnight recitals. Five

Dances for Organ was commissioned by the

Holtkamp Organ Company and later dedicated

to Walter Holtkamp and Karen McFarlane,

who were married around the premiere of this

work. In Hampton’s music one can hear the influence

of Stravinsky or Prokofiev through

Hampton’s use of rhythmic cells and mixed

meter. Dance II, entitled “At the Ballet,” in an

unusual meter of 10/8, illustrates a dancer on

pointe. Dance III, entitled, “Those Americans,”

uses a constant rhythmic cell with a jazzy triplet

influence throughout. Calvin Hampton’s music

is heard both in recital and throughout liturgies

of the church. Hampton’s influence served to

preserve traditional worship in the United

States.

 

MISSION CAMP UP NEXT

With 21 attending this year’s Mission Camp,

July 20-24, we will need 5 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.

Faith Development at Morningside

ADULT CLASSES

The class will resume next Sunday, July 12 at 9:45 a.m. in Room 201 and will follow another of our successful guided series of discussions about current topics. "Science and Faith" will be co-led by Carol Senf and Sarah Tomaka. As citizens of both a world of science and the kingdom of God, many of us struggle to integrate what we learn from scientific advances against what we learn from scriptures, confessions and other aspects of our faith. Each week stands alone and will cover faith seeking understanding through science, the cosmos, the story of life, human beings, brain and mind, and technology and the future.

CHILDREN’S CLASSES

Today the Preschool class will learn how Eli helped young Samuel hear God in the story Samuel, Samuel!
