Life @ Morningside for March 27, 2016

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. Dr. Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor, will be our preacher, and Rev. Drew Stockstill, Associ-ate Pastor, 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 note-books 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-3rd grade in Room 001; 4th-5th grade in worship. 

 

SERVICE MUSIC 

From the time of their first publication, the organ symphonies of Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937) have been recognized as masterpieces. Widor called these works symphonies because of their several movements and because of the symphonic nature of the French romantic organ for which they were written. The Symphony No. 5 and the "gothique" (IX) seem to have been Widor's favorites. The popularity of the "Toccata" from No. 5 is practically unparalleled in the organ repertoire. It is a toccata in the true sense of the word, with brilliant figuration punctuated by full chords and a melody in the pedals. The organ postlude is a truly celebratory piece for Easter. 

 

ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING 

We join Presbyterian churches nationwide in giving to this special offering on Easter. Please see the insert for more information about programs and use the enclosed envelopes for your gift (checks to MPC with memo for OGHS). When you give to One Great Hour of Sharing, you are supporting the gifts and talents of people and communities all over the world. 

 

EASTER BANNERS 

The Easter banners made of batik fabrics represent the life and light of Christ rising from death to eternal life on Easter morning. These two banners were made identically to bring emphasis and thanks to Christ Jesus and the Holy Power of God on Easter Sunday. The titles of the banners are: Blessings of Easter; I am with you always to the end of the age, and Alleluia give thanks to the risen Lord. 

 

WOMEN’S ROUNDTABLE 

Tomorrow, March 28, our speaker Keryl Oliver, new Executive Director of Journey Men’s Shelter, will inspire conversation through her story, on how we can more fully bring the light of God to Journey residents through future programs. Join us for dinner and fellowship at 6:30 p.m. This month’s host is Holly Greene, 263 The Prado 30309. RSVP to Sarah Brownlee, rsbrownlee1046@att.net

 

THEOLOGY ON TAP 

The next meeting of Theology on Tap will be hosted by Bob Wells on Tuesday, April 5 at 7 p.m. at the home of Pam and Ken Sharpe (1700 Timberland Rd, Atlanta 30345). Join us for a good program and great fellowship. RSVP to the church office office@morningsidepc.org

 

TAI CHI CHAUN 

Come and experience the slow, relaxing movements of the ancient art of Tai Chi Chaun.
