CONGREGATIONAL SYMPATHY

We extend our sympathy to Tyler Ryan, Suzanne MacPherson and their daughters Vanessa, Sophie and Bridget on the death of Tyler’s father. Like-wise we remember in our prayers Ame, Matt and Jacob Frease on the death of Ame’s grandmother, and finally Lester Morris and Baron Mullis on the death of Lester’s grandmother. 

 

BAPTISM TODAY

Jack Joseph Knezevich, child of Ann Marie and Joe Knezevich will receive the sacrament of baptism this morning. 

 

NOMINATIONS BEGIN TODAY

It’s time to nominate Elders for the Session, Deacons for the Board of Deacons, and Members of the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee. Today, and next Sunday, October 2, nomination forms will be in the bulletin, the Narthex, and the Welcome Center. After consid-ering your nominee(s), ask their permission before you submit their name for consideration to the Of-ficer Nominating Committee. You can turn in nomination forms to the church office, the offering plate or in one of the boxes in the Narthex and Welcome Center. 

 

WHO SAID KEYS CAN’T HAVE LEGS?

We want to remind you to return keys back to their original location after use. We know some-times they want to get fresh air, but we have to remind them to come back into the building be-fore the street lights come on. 

 

VIDEO OF MORNINGSIDE’S 2016 GALA

The Sounds of Music is available on the church website: http://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. 

 

MONTREAT REGISTRATION IS UPON US! 

You won’t want to miss our congregational retreat in Montreat coming up in October. Forms are available here: http://images.acswebnetworks.com/1/2687/MONTREATForm.pdf and also in the Narthex and Welcome Center of the Church. Because we fill up rather quickly it’s best to turn in your forms as soon as possible. Turn them into Alicia Oben in the church office. Our retreat is for all ages and is a wonderful way to “go deeper” with your church family. 

 

SUPPORT MPP DINE OUT 

We ask that on Monday, September 26 you 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. 

 

TAI CHI HAS BEGUN 

Tai Chi is the ancient Chinese system of exercise, martial arts, and moving meditation. As a disci-pline of mind/body awareness, Tai Chi improves flexibility, balance, and muscle tone and culti-vates energy and vitality. In each class you will learn the slow, graceful movements of the Yang style. Join us every Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., in Fellowship Hall. All are welcome! 

 

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

 

JOURNEY MEN’S SHELTER

Grab your lantern, flashlight, or your blinking hat and join Journey Men’s Shelter on Sun., Oct. 2 from 7-9:30 p.m. for a kick-off event to their year-long campaign “Shine a Light on Homelessness.” The kick-off includes a 1-mile lighted walk starting at the shelter and ending with a reception at the historic Highland Inn ballroom for drinks, coffee, and dessert. Register at journeyshelter.org/shine-a-light

 

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS

On Sunday, October 2, Morningside members and their animals are invited to gather on the lawn at 6 p.m. for a special service in which we give thanks to God for all of creation. Blessing of the Animals is our opportunity to express our love for our pets and to give thanks to God for them. This short service welcomes all—as is our cus-tom—but we do ask that all are appropriately restrained by leash or carrier. Please join in giv-ing thanks to God! 

 

RHINO AND MORNINGSIDE TEAM UP

Roland Behm is coordinating another fall trip to rebuild homes in New Orleans October 26-30. In case you haven’t heard, we will be working with Rebuilding Hope in New Orleans (RHINO). We will likely be gutting storm-ravaged homes in Southern Louisiana and helping homeowners rebuild both their homes and hope. We will drive to New Orleans on Wednesday, work Thursday - Saturday, and return Sunday, after the early service at SCAPC. More information will be forthcoming and you can also contact Roland Behm roland.behm@gmail.com or 404.217.5514 if you have any questions. 

 

INTERESTED IN BECOMING A GREETER?

Being the first person that a visitor meets is criti-cal 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

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

Next Sunday Margaret Hofland will discuss God’s covenant promises.

Today they’ll hear about Joseph reuniting with his brothers from Genesis 42. Joseph was able to forgive his brothers. God did not cause any of the unfortunate events in Joseph’s life, but God helped him work through the circumstances so good could happen.
