TAI CHI RESUMES SEPTEMBER 22, 4:30 PM

Come experience the slow, relaxing movements

of the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi Chuan. Often

called Meditation in Motion, this mind/body

Medical School cites over 170 randomized

controlled research studies that show practicing

Tai Chi can improve overall health while increasing

strength, balance, and flexibility. Please wear

loose, comfortable clothing.

 

BIBLE STUDY

A year-long evening Bible Study with Baron

Mullis will begin Wednesday, September 30.

The class is for those who have studied the Bible

and for those who feel they know nothing. There

will be a cost to attend which includes a Bible,

materials, and supper each week. Registration

deadline is September 23. RSVP to the church

office office@morningsidepc.org. For more information,

see this month’s newsletter.

 

FALL IS STILL FOOD- TRUCK SEASON

It’s popular with members, neighbors and friends

on hectic school nights. Get out of the kitchen

between 5 and 8 p.m. the fourth Thursday of the

month (Sept. 24 and Oct.22) to grab a bite from

our selection of vendors and spend some social

time. Kids will enjoy our renovated playground

while grown-ups chat with friends and meet new

ones. If you can come a bit early or are still

around when the trucks are packing up to go, the

Evangelism Ministry would deeply appreciate a

few helping hands to fold up the tables and chairs

and move them into the vestibule.
