INTERFAITH SUPPER CLUB 

1 in 7 Americans struggle with food insecurity and unfortunately it is offered as an accepted method for measuring food deprivation. Interfaith Supper Club is meeting on Tuesday, August 16 at 7 p.m. in Fellowship Hall for their potluck get together where they will discuss food insecurity. If you have any questions or would like to RSVP to join their interfaith group, please e-mail Anna Miles anna.miles@emory.edu

 

FAITH DEVELOPMENT CLASS 

Starting on August 21 and continuing for six weeks, the Faith Development class will be taking up the issue of income inequality in the context of the faith imperative to work for social justice. The fact is that we hear about the erosion of the middle class, the growing concentration in the hands of the wealthy, but we hear less about the fact that off all the industrialized countries the United States has the highest overall poverty rate and the highest child poverty rate. We have remarkable group of presenters to help us explore the issue. We invite all who are members and visitors of Morningside to the forum. 

 

GALA CONCERT NEXT WEEK 

This year’s gala concert will include choirs of every age singing the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Youth and adults have rehearsed since July 27 and are prepared to put on an unforgettable performance. Come and be a part of this exciting fun-filled event. 

 

CAROL FOR THE BELLS 

Positions are currently available in Morningside’s Handbell Choir and we want you to join!
