GALA CONCERT AUGUST 20 

We are calling all children, youth and adults who are interested in being a part of an amazing concert! This year’s Gala concert will include choirs of every age singing the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Those wanting to sing in the Gala concert should contact Jonathan Crutchfield jcrutchfield@morningsidepc.org today. Children’s rehearsals are Wednesdays, July 27, August 3 and 10. Dress rehearsals are August 17 and 19 for full cast and singers. The concert is Saturday, August 20. Youth and adults will rehearse with the Chancel Choir on Wednesdays beginning June 22. This is an event you won’t want to miss! 

 

MISSION TRIP IN CLARKESVILLE, GA 

Today is the day that twelve youth and four adult advisors head to Clarkesville, GA this afternoon for a week-long mission trip. Youth will assist in leading a Vacation Bible School in an economically challenged community and will aid in home repairs. Please keep our missionaries in your prayers. 

 

RHO READERS 

Friends, family, and book lovers, join us today in room 201 at 12:30 p.m. to talk about Lauren Groff’s best-selling novel Fates and Furies. With the discussion being led by Jill Klotz, this is a moment you will not want to miss! 

 

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY RENOVATION 

The chaos of the Children’s Ministry construction on the lower level is completed! Do you remember all the dim lighting, unsightly wiring, and window air conditioners? Well they are gone! They have been replaced with new ceilings, bright lighting and state-of-the-art air conditioning units. 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 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. 

 

SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER 

Bob Wells has done a fantastic job offering Tai Chi lessons that aid relaxation to help keep the mind calm and focused. Parkinson's tai chi will continue on at 2:15, while Tai Chi at 4:30 has ended until September. For more information pertaining the Tai Chi offered at 4:30, please contact Bob Wells, 404.786.4650; wellscom@comcast.net 

 

YOGA AND WEIGHTS 

In case you haven’t come to a Yoga and Weights class offered by Instructor Pam Sharpe, a fitness professional for over 35 years, then the time is now! Come out and experience Gentle Yoga which will begin on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. in room 201, and Weights, which will be held on Thursdays at 11 a.m. in room 201. For any questions or additional information, please email Pam yogapam@bellsouth.net

 

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.

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. Contact Laura Ulep at lauraulep@gmail.com if you would like to help.
