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

 

VIDEO OF MORNINGSIDE’S 2016 GALA

The Sounds of Music is available on the church website: htttp://www.morningsidepc.org/video. This year’s gala featured over 40 Morningside singers, musicians and artists and raised $6,385, which will support Morningside’s Music Programs and Mission Ministries. 

 

STILL IN NEED OF GREETERS

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. 

 

CLIFTON ANNOUNCEMENT 

Please join us in preparing and serving a meal for the men of Clifton Sanctuary Ministries on Saturday, September 24th at 5:30pm. Meal service begins at 6:00pm. There is a sign up sheet in the hallway with the portions of a meal needed. We look forward to serving with you and taking the opportunity to chat with some of the men about their stories.

SUPPORT MPP DINE OUT 

No need to cook dinner on Monday, September 26! Head on over to El Taco in the evening for delicious meals. Be sure to let them know you are with MPP so that we get a portion of the proceeds. 

 

COME TO TAI CHI THIS TUESDAY 

Tai Chi resumes from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20, in Fellowship Hall. All are welcome. Tai Chi is the ancient Chinese sys-tem of exercise, martial arts, and moving medita-tion. As a discipline of mind/body awareness, Tai Chi improves flexibility, balance, and muscle tone and cultivates energy and vitality. 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 

This month we will have Rachel Spears as our speaker. On Monday, September 26, Rachel will talk about her work as Executive Director of the Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta. Come for din-ner 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

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

Next Sunday Beth Baer’s topic gears towards a Morningside Response to Income Inequality. 

CHILDREN 

Children will learn about Joseph this month. Today they’ll hear about him reuniting with his brothers from Genesis 41. Throughout Joseph’s story, God’s work is evident, but Joseph did not rely on God to do all of the work. When an opportunity presented itself, Joseph acted.
