Life @ Morningside for April 24, 2016

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor is our preacher, Drew Stockstill, Associate Pastor, and Sarah Smith, intern are our liturgists. 

• Large print hymnals and Bibles as well as hearing aids are available; ushers will gladly assist. 

• 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. 

• Children are welcome in worship every Sunday. Should your child grow restless during the service they are invited to attend Sunday School after the Peace of Christ. 

• Preschool children-Room 011. 

• Kindergarten through 5th Grade will have Sunday School in room 107 (Youth Room) while the classrooms undergo renovations. 

• Nursery care during the Sunday School and worship hours is available for Infants in Room 105, and in Room 012 for Toddlers and Two’s. 

• Worship bags are available for all children in the narthex. 

 

THE ORGAN PIPES SHALL SOUND 

The last rank of organ pipes finally have been installed and will be featured today in the Organ Prelude. The bright metal pipes, called the Second Open Diapason, can be seen at the front of each organ chamber in the chancel area. While most organ sounds mimic or-chestral instruments, the Diapason is a unique sound to organs. We have been waiting for these organ pipes since 2007 because the organ company making the pipes went into bankruptcy shortly after the pipes were ordered. With this installation, the organ is complete according to its builder, Robert Coulter. The next phase will be rebuilding the organ console.

Our last LGBT & Friends meeting of the church year is quickly approaching! Please join us at the home of Carolyn and Peter Cobb on Tuesday, May 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. We welcome back Rev.

BIBLE SUNDAY 

On Sunday, May 1, all Fourth and Fifth Grade students will have the opportunity to participate in Bible Sunday. This is a new celebration implemented by Children’s Ministry as part of MPC’s efforts to welcome children into worship and encourage families to worship together. Every year at MPC we will honor our Fourth Grade students by presenting them with their own Bibles. This year, we wanted to include the Fifth Graders as well. MPC Children’s Ministry wants to make sure that every child who walks through our doors has the opportunity to learn and discover the wonderful messages from God found in the Bible. They will receive their Bibles as a gift from the congregation during the 11 a.m. worship service.
