PICK UP YOUR POSTER

Those who contributed to the Broadway gala for a poster, please pick yours up in the Fellowship Hall today. 

 

NEWS FROM THE CHILDREN’S CHOIR

Morningside has plenty of opportunities for our children especially when it involves music. 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

 

NEW GREETERS NEEDED

Being the first person that a visitor meets is critical to how they experience our church. It’s easy, fun and a great way to make a connection with our members. We’re asking for a once-a-month commitment for 20-30 minutes before Sunday worship. If interested, please contact Bill and Sanda Means billmeans@bellsouth.net

 

MONTREAT REGISTRATION IS OPEN 

There are few things so enjoyable as a hot cup of coffee on a cool autumn morning on the porch of the William Black Lodge in the North Carolina Mountains with your family around you… so you won’t want to miss our congregational retreat in Montreat coming up in October. We frequently fill the William Black Lodge, so don’t wait to fill out your registration form. They are available here: http://images.acswebnetworks.com/1/2687/MONTREATForm.pdf and also in the Narthex and Welcome Center of the Church. Turn them into Alicia Oben in the church office. Our retreat is appropriate for all ages and is a wonderful way to “go deeper” with your church family. 

 

THEOLOGY ON TAP RETURNS 

Theology on Tap, a popular men’s program here at Morningside will meet Tuesday, September 13 at 7 p.m. Bill Means will host at the home of Pam and Ken Sharpe (1700 Timberland Road, Atlanta, 30345). 

 

INTERFAITH SUPPER CLUB 

The next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 13 at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. We have invited M.Div. scholar, theologian, and public speaker, Calvin Taylor. He will lead us in conversation on Racial Reconciliation from an interfaith perspective. Please RSVP with the number of guests and your dish if you plan to attend to Anna Miles anna.miles@emory.edu

 

ONE GRAY HAIR RETURNS 

Come and enjoy stories about Norway, Iceland, Iona, Shetland, and Orkney. Please join us for lunch and program on Wednesday, September 14 at noon in the Fellowship Hall. Contact the Brownlees rsbrownlee1046@att.net to notify them of your attendance. They will need to get a count for food. 

 

THE WAIT IS OVER 

Tai Chi resumes from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20, in Fellowship Hall. All are welcome. What is Tai Chi? Tai Chi is the ancient Chinese system of exercise, martial arts, and moving meditation. As a discipline of mind/body awareness, Tai Chi improves flexibility, balance, and muscle tone; cultivates energy and vitality; and promotes a deep sense of well being. In each class you will learn the slow, graceful movements of the Yang style. Research at Harvard Medical School has shown that Tai Chi offers an aerobic workout equivalent to a brisk walk. 

 

WOMEN’S ROUNDTABLE 

We’re delighted Rachel Spears will be our speaker on Monday, September 26 to talk about her work as Executive Director of the Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta. PBPA connects volunteer attorneys with Georgia nonprofits in need of free business legal services. Come for dinner and fellowship at 6:30 p.m. This month’s host is Lynn Young, 277 The Prado 30309. RSVP to Sarah Brownlee at rsbrownlee1046@att.net

ADULT CLASS 

Next week Sarah Beth Gehl will discuss a study of income gaps in selected university facilities and what to do about institutionalized and systemic inequality.

Children will learn about Joseph this month. Today they’ll hear about him being in Egypt from Genesis 39. When things are not going well, God is still at work behind the scenes, making opportunities for Joseph’s hard work and moral character to bring Joseph success.
