INTOWN COLLABORATIVE MINISTRIES 
URGENT FOOD COLLECTION 

Thank you to everyone who has donated food. MPC's current food collection to-taled 210.4 pounds!! Due to low supplies at the Atlanta Food Bank, ICM is having difficulty stocking its shelves. Urgent needs are tuna, salmon, and chicken (in can or foil pack). Other ready-to-eat meals such as canned ravioli, beef stew, etc., are also perfect for those living on the street. Please consider a donation of these items during this im-promptu collection (through July 24) at MPC. Bring your donations to the Welcome Center bas-kets. Contact Nancy Collins ncollins0209@gmail.com, 678.634.4572 with questions.

We are an inclusive group of all ages and backgrounds that meets once a month for food, fellowship and different topics for learning and conversation. Our meetings have different themes: religion and politics in America, the Bible and homosexuality, social justice, and the arts! LGBT & Friends will be having their annual group photo on the front steps after church on Sunday, July 24.

YOUNG PEOPLE'S SACRED HARP 
SINGING CONVENTION 

Morningside will host the Young People's Sacred Harp Singing Convention Saturday, July 30 at 9 a.m. People from southern states will come together to sing hymns using the "Sacred Harp" style. The convention welcomes folks of all ages and attracts the typical inter-generational co-hort. The name can cause a bit of confusion, but have no fear: everybody is welcome - including those with "some chronological age!" You do not have to know how to sing using shape notes. Contact Jesse Karlsberg jesse@jpkarlsberg.com for more information.
