Life @ Morningside for June 5, 2016

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Rev. Dr. Mark Douglas is professor of Christian ethics at Columbia theological seminary. James Klotz is our liturgist. 

•  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 and encouraged in worship every Sunday. Should your child grow restless during the service they are invited to exit the sanctuary at the Peace of Christ to attend Sunday School. 

•  Rising PreK and Kindergarten-Room 011. 

•  Rising 1st through 5th Grade will remain in worship today 

•  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. 

 

CHOIR CONCERT TODAY! 

The Chancel Choir and soloists present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Missa Brevis in F” with the Atlanta Strings this afternoon at 4pm. Included on the program will be the “Liebeslieder Waltzes” by Johannes Brahms, also sung by our soloists with 4-hand piano accompaniment. The concert is free. A collection will be taken to benefit the music ministry. Invite friends and family to join you this afternoon. 

 

FAITH DEVELOPMENT GROUP 

For the next few weeks, we’ll continue looking at passages from Scripture as illuminated in Dr. Frances Taylor Gench’s book, Encountering God in Tyrannical Texts: Reflections on Paul, Women, and the Authority of Scripture. The book highlights excerpts from the Apostle Paul’s letters that have been used to limit opportunities for women both in the church and in family life. During the first session on Encountering God in Tyrannical Texts the group considered whether it was appropriate to remove sections of the Bible that were discovered to be problematic. The discussion led into such byways as revealing attire, hairstyles, parenting, and social changes over the twenty centuries since Paul wrote these letters. Our discussion will continue through June 19. 

 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 

We need help turning the campus into a surfer's par-adise after worship next Sunday, June 12. If you are available to help decorate, please meet us in the nar-thex at 12:30pm, and we suggest changing out of your church clothes! 

 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: 

Interested in volunteering with LGBT & Friends, or fellow Morningside members? If so, there are community service opportunities currently available with Habitat for Humanity as well as Intown Collaborative Ministries throughout 2016. Please let Ben Hammett Walkuski know if you’re interested or would like more information: bwalkuski@gmail.com

 

MPP SUMMER CAMP

Those who have completed the Toddler, Twos, Threes and PreK years are welcome. There are a few openings for most age groups each week. Next week, June 6-10, there is ONE opening in each age group!

INTOWN'S CLOTHING CLOSET

ICM needs supplies at its Clothing Closet! They offer interview, work, and casual clothing (for men and women) and are located on the back side of Druid Hills Presbyterian Church (1026 Ponce de Leon Ave). Clothing donations can be dropped off Mondays from 10:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or by appointment with Rev. Allen at allen@intowncm.org. Needed items include: shirts, t-shirts, pants, underwear, white socks, casual shoes, sweaters and hoodies, sweatshirts and pants. 

 

DID YOU HEAR ABOUT OUR NEW PIANO? 

Chris Hawkins has graciously donated his Lester piano to the church. Through the generous donations of this congregation, the money raised to buy a piano in honor of former Organist/Choirmaster, Walter Huff instead was used to rebuild the Lester piano. We extend our grateful thanks to Chris and Philip Hawkins, and to all those who contributed to the Huff Piano Fund. 

 

YOGA AND WEIGHTS 

Instructor Pam Sharpe, a fitness professional for over 35 years, is offering fitness classes here at Morningside that you won’t want to miss!

FITNESS CONTINUES 

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
