Life @ Morningside for June 12, 2016

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Drew Stockstill, Associate Pastor is our preacher, Rev. Matt Frease 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. 

• 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. 

 

SPECIAL GUESTS 

Today, we welcome the Chattanooga Boys Choir which is comprised of 38 singers. The choir is on summer tour through Memphis, Birmingham and Atlanta. CBC is one of the oldest Boys Choirs in the South and is directed by Vincent (Vic) Oakes. 

 

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS 

Last Sunday, June 5, Morningside welcomed the following new members: Marti and Kirk Adams, Erik and Brianna Selness. Please be sure to give them a warm greeting when you see them. 

 

CARE TO HELP? 

Vacation Bible School starts tomorrow and we need your help turning the campus into a surfer’s paradise after worship today. If you are available to decorate, please meet us in the narthex at 12:30 p.m. Also, the VBS leadership team will be hosting Fellowship Hour next Sunday, June 19 on the front lawn to thank all of the children, youth and adults who helped with VBS! 

 

RHO READERS 

Book lovers, join us on Sunday, June 19 to talk about Lauren Groff’s best-selling novel Fates and Furies. With the discussion being led by Jill Klotz, we guarantee you won’t want to miss it! 

 

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY RENOVATION 

The chaos of the Children’s Ministry construction on the lower level is nearing completion! As you venture through the lower level corridor, you can now SEE your way with the brighter, more cheerful lighting and colors! Be sure to peek inside the classrooms and enjoy the colors and changes there. All the dim lighting, unsightly wiring, and window air conditioners are gone! They have been replaced with new ceilings, bright lighting and state-of-the-art air conditioning units. A few details remain, however they are ready for VBS next week. Other changes are taking place. Even with more lighting, energy is being saved with all new LED fixtures and sensors that turn the corridor and room lights on when you enter and turn them off when you leave. Later this month, the former Women’s restroom will also become a “family/unisex” restroom that is fully handicap accessible, with all new features. The former Men’s restroom will also be roomier and converted into a single-use unisex restroom. 

 

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. 

 

MPP SUMMER CAMP IS HERE

Even though MPP Summer Camp is in full swing, the preschool is still offering camp on a week-by-week basis for the next few 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. Contact Director Melinda Sandkam at mpp@morningsidepc.org to sign up.

We are in need of volunteers to help out in the pantry at ICM Saturday, July 9th. Hours are 10 a.m.—1 p.m. at Druid Hills United Methodist on Ponce de Leon. Responsibilities will include greeting and interviewing guests for food needs, packing groceries, and distributing them to the needy guests.
