Life @ Morningside for July 19, 2015

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presby-terian Church. Drew Stockstill, Associate Pastor, will be our preacher, and Aaron Shepherd will be our liturgist. Please com-plete 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 wor-ship. Worship notebooks and books for chil-dren 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 clas-ses: Fours and fives in Room 011; K-5th grad-ers also in Room 011. 

 

FLOWERS IN THE SANCTUARY 

The flowers today are given to the glory of God in the memory of the birthday of Gail Peters by Jeff Peters and Michael Siedschlag. 

 

SERVICE MUSIC 

Today’s worship music features traditional Irish, English and Shaker carols arranged for handbells and strings. Be Thou My Vision is ar-ranged by Arnold B. Sherman and incorpo-rates the gently flowing Celtic melody of the beloved hymn utilizing beautiful harmonies and broken chord patterns. A Simple Dance is arranged by Michael Glasgow and combines the Shaker tune Simple Gifts (often referred to as Lord of the Dance) composed in 1848 by Joseph Brackett with the English carol Tomor-row Shall Be My Dancing Day in a lilting waltz. 

 

SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM 

This morning Amelia Jane Millard will receive the sacrament of baptism. Amelia is the daughter of Amy and Brad, and the sister of Madelyn and Emmerson. 

 

MISSION CAMP THIS WEEK 

Please keep the “It’s Not All About Me” Mis-sion Camp attendees (19 energetic campers), 

their leaders, and driving chaperones in your prayers as we explore how to reach out to others during this hands-on week, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day. 

• CAR WASH - Don’t miss the FREE Car Wash (donations gladly accepted) tomor-row, Monday July 20, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. Bring your car(s) by during the lunch hour! Mission Campers invite you to support their effort to raise funds for FurKids Ani-mal Shelter, which we will visit on Friday. 

• BAG COLLECTION - Bring your extra plastic grocery bags with you to the Car Wash tomorrow or drop them off at the church (Welcome Center baskets) through Wednesday. Mission Campers will deliver them to be used at Intown Collaborative Ministries Food Pantry. 

• ICE CREAM SOCIAL - Next Sunday, July 26, Mission Camp attendees will host Fellowship Hour. You are invited to come and enjoy ice cream and hear about the week. And as a bonus, we have added a talent show to our Calvin Court Senior Community visit and hope to share one of the acts at the Social. 

 

GRAB A BURGER FOR JOURNEY

This Tuesday, July 21, 6-10 p.m. join us at the Virginia-Highland Yeah! Burger for a fund-raiser benefiting Journey Men's Shelter! 10% of your total bill will go to-wards funding Journey's mission to help homeless men through employment, educa-tion, housing and counseling services. Thank you!

This class fills each year, so please contact Melinda Sandkam at msandkam@morningsidepc.org immediately if you are interested in this op-portunity. 

 

MARK YOUR CALENDARS 

The phrase “This I Believe...” prompts vari-ous responses from all of us. Some think of Starbucks cups, others of Edward R. Murrow, and many of us re-member the services at MPC where fellow congregants told us what they held as core values. This I Believe Sunday, featuring Morn-ingside members speaking from their hearts, will be on Sunday, August 23. 

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL KICK-OFF 

Sunday School Kick-off will be on September 13 this year, a little later than usual. Mark your calendars now! This will be the date that children move up to their new age groups. 

 

ALL CHURCH RETREAT 

Save the dates on your calendar for our an-nual retreat to Montreat. We’ve reserved the weekend of October 16-18 in the North Carolina mountains. Our guest speaker will be The Reverend Paul Roberts, President of Johnson C. Smith Seminary.

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT 

This class meets each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. in Room 201. We will continue to follow our guided 

series of discussions on 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 in-tegrate 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 

The Preschool Class will hear the story Lions, Lions and learn how God honored Daniel's faithful-ness.
