Seminary and Candler School of Divinity at

BIBLE STUDY

A year-long (September-April) evening Bible

Study with Baron Mullis will begin Wednesday,

have studied the Bible and for those who feel they

know nothing. There will be a $60 cost to attend

the first week, and there is an opportunity

to order supper each week. Scholarships are available.

The registration deadline is September 23.

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

exercise is both relaxing and energizing. The Harvard

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. For more information,

contact Bob Wells wellscom@comcast.net.

 

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.

 

OFFICER NOMINATIONS

It is the season of discernment where our Officer

Nominating Committee asks for your help in determining

whom God is calling to be leaders at

Morningside. Our ONC nominates candidates to

the office of Elder, Deacon, and next year’s

ONC. The process is simple - fill out the form in

your bulletin and place it in a box in either the

Narthex or the Welcome Center. You don’t have

to ask their permission to share their name with

the ONC - permission is only required for later

nominations. Just give the ONC the names, and

they’ll take it from here!

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS

On Sunday, October 25, Morningside members –

and their animals – are invited to gather on the

lawn at 5 p.m. for a special service in which we

give thanks to God for all of creation. Traditionally

celebrated on the Feast Day of St. Francis, Blessing

of the Animals is our opportunity to express our

love for our pets and to give thanks to God for

them. This short service welcomes all – as is our

custom – but we do ask that all are appropriately

restrained by leash or carrier. Please join in giving

thanks to God!
