YOGA AND BODY SCULPTING 

When you’re not cooling off in the neighborhood pool, or reading an adventure book while enjoying ice cold lemonade, then you should come and be a part of Morningside Yoga and Body Sculpting. Instructor Pam Sharpe, a fitness professional for over 35 years, is back again for amazing fitness sessions! Gentle Yoga will begin on Tuesday, June 7 at 11 a.m. in room 201, and Body Sculpting will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m. in room 201.

TAI CHI CHUAN 

Tai Chi, as it is practiced in the west today, is usually thought of as a moving form of yoga and meditation combined. Tai Chi classes here at Morningside provide a practical avenue for learning about balance alignment, fine-scale motor control, rhythm of movement, and many more. Join Bob Wells as he does a fantastic job by offering lessons that aid relaxation and help keep the mind calm and focused. This introductory class meets on Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, contact Bob Wells, 404.786.4650; wellscom@comcast.net

 

WATCH SUNDAY’S WORSHIP ONLINE! 

Thanks to the ingenuity and dedication of Bob Wells, Derek Mathews, and all our sound and IT volunteers, you can now watch Sunday’s service on our website if you missed it. It’s not the same as being here, but it is the next best thing. Services are typically one week delayed, and there is an archive. Enjoy this gift from our wonderful volunteers. 

 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 

VBS registration is now closed and we have over 80 children planning to attend! VBS is June 13-17, 9 a.m.– 12 p.m. and we still need several volunteers to be group leaders and Bible storytellers. VBS families will also have the opportunity to participate in a school supply drive for the children supported by Intown Collaborative Ministries. Each day of VBS we will have a collection box in the narthex for children to donate backpacks, lunch boxes, wide ruled/college ruled lined paper, crayons (16pk), pencils, colored pencils, glue sticks, and folders. All are welcome to participate in this school supply drive!

MPP SUMMER CAMP

The preschool offers camp on a week-by-week basis for five weeks this summer. Details about camps and registration forms can be found on the preschool pages at www.morningsidepc.org. Those who have completed the Toddler, Twos, Threes and PreK years are welcome. There are a few openings for most age groups each week. If you are in town for the Memorial Day week, there are a few remaining completed threes and PreK openings for camp. The theme this week is “It’s all about music.” Contact Director Melinda Sandkam at mpp@morningsidepc.org for details on availability. 

 

WANT A VERY PART TIME JOB IN JUNE?

The Preschool seeks to augment its substitute list and still needs a toddler assistant here or there. Must be 18 years old and have some experience with young children. Could be as many as nine days in June or even three days in a week. Please contact Melinda for the specific needs. 

 

NEW PIANO 

We are thrilled to have a new grand piano in the fellowship hall. Chris Hawkins has graciously donated his Lester piano to the church. Through the generous donations of this congregation, the money was raised to buy a piano in honor of former Organist/Choirmaster, Walter Huff was instead used to rebuild the Lester piano. These funds were used to rebuild the piano. It is a fitting way for this church to celebrate Walter’s 25 years of music leadership and to provide a lovely piano for the fellowship hall. We extend our grateful thanks to Chris and Philip Hawkins, and to all those who contributed to the Huff Piano Fund. 

 

CHOIR CONCERT 

Come and experience a music concert presented by The Chancel Choir and soloist Sunday, June 5 at 4 p.m. Mozart’s “Missa Brevis in F Major,” K. 192 was written when Mozart was only 18 years old. It is a smaller setting of the mass text but clearly shows Mozart’s genius as a composer. This work will feature the choir with 18 year old Kirby Burgess as soprano soloist; Nan Nowell, alto; John Young, tenor; Brandon Odom, baritone; Mason Copeland organist; and the Atlanta Strings. The concert will also feature our four soloists (Megan Mashburn, Nan Nowell, John Young, Brandon Odom) singing the Brahms “Liebeslieder Waltzes,” op.52 with Jonathan Crutchfield and Ben Leaptrott providing 4-hand piano accompaniment. The concert is free! A collection will be taken to benefit music at Morningside. Please invite your friends and family to join you.
