WHAT BOOK DID YOU CHOOSE? 

Have you gotten your fall read yet? If not, there is still time to rack up on books by visiting the RHO Readers book sale located in Fellowship hall. When you are participating in the RHO Readers book sale, know that all proceeds go to end-of-the-year gifts to The Global Village Project.

NEWS FROM THE CHILDREN’S CHOIR

The children’s choir is made up of a group of very talented youth that are always a pleasure to see and hear. Morningside has plenty of opportunities for our children to be expressive and have fun doing so. It’s not too late to bring your young singers to children’s choir. We have more than enough room for singers each Wednesday evening at 5:45 p.m. Rehearsal lasts until 6:30 p.m. For more information contact Jonathan Crutchfield jcrutchfield@morningsidepc.org
