Life @ Morningside for August 9, 2015

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian

Church. Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor,

will be our preacher, and Drew

Stockstill, Associate Pastor, will be our liturgist.

We are grateful for the gifts of music

this morning from our Morningside members

Mac Frampton, guest organist, and Liz

Rice, guest conductor. 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 grade in

Room 001; 3rd-5th grade are in Room 005.

 

FLOWERS IN THE SANCTUARY

The flowers today are given to the glory of

God in celebration of Sarah and Peter Chatel’s

7th wedding anniversary.

 

SERVICE MUSIC

Fifth Sonata, Andante - Mendelssohn was a frequent

performer in England and was widely

popular. In 1845 he was commissioned to

write a series of Voluntaries for organ. He

eventually decided to call them Sonatas,

though they bear almost no resemblance to the

classical Sonata form. Sonata #5 begins with a

chorale prelude, transitioning into a new

theme which is punctuated by a continuous

staccato pedal.

Voluntary - British organist Martin Shaw composed

this work as a Processional, but it works

equally well as a Postlude. It is based on the

well known Chorale tune “Lobe den Herren”

(“Praise Ye The Lord”). The composition

progresses through a series of statements alternating

with portions of the Chorale. Midway

through there is an alternate theme introduced.

And finally the work returns to the

Chorale motif, concluding with a thunderous

recapitulation of the entire Chorale!

 

JOURNEY MEN'S SHELTER

Thank you to the players on our MPC men's

softball team for providing the meal to the men

of Journey this evening. If you or your small

group is interested in providing a future

meal, contact shepherd Tamara Nix,

tamaranix@alumni.duke.edu.

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL KICK- OFF

Sunday School Kick-off will be on

September 13 this year, a little later than usual.

This will be the date that children move up

to their new age groups.

 

MARK YOUR CALENDARS

While in the Presbyterian tradition the work of

preaching is assigned to the clergy, Christian

faith has a long history of testimony. On August

23, our popular series This I Believe continues

with three Morningside members (Peter

Chatel, Katye Watts, and Kent Balch) speaking

about their faith and what shapes their core

values.

LITURGICAL ARTS DAY CAMP

Morningside Presbyterian Church is excited

to offer a one day, hands on camp for children

to explore the liturgical world through

archaeology, natural sciences, and art.

Jane Arant is an award-winning musician

who has served as faculty to the Yale University

Congregations Project for children's

liturgical arts programs. Jane will lead our

children through an archaeological dig to

find liturgical artifacts, use math and science

to predict height and weight of people

today as well as in Biblical times, and much,

much more.

This dynamic, one day program will be first

offered to rising 4th and 5th graders on

Saturday, August 29 from 10 a.m. to

3 p.m. Children are asked to bring their

own lunch. If your 4th or 5th grade student

Faith Development at Morningside

ADULT

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. “Science and Faith,” co-led by Carol Senf and Sarah Tomaka, meets each week in Room 201 at 9:45 a.m. (each week stands alone). The class covers faith seeking understanding through science, the cosmos, the story of life, human beings, brain and mind, and technology and the future.

CHILDREN

In the story A Father’s Wish, the Preschool Class will learn how Jesus helped a father whose child was very sick.
