Life @ Morningside for October 2, 2016

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor is our preacher, Sarah Are, Interim Director of Youth Ministries is our liturgist. 

• Large print hymnals and Bibles as well as hearing aids are available; ushers will gladly assist. 

• Please complete the information in the Friendship Pad at the end of the pews and pass the pads down and back again during the Concerns portion of worship. 

• Children are welcomed and encouraged in worship every Sunday. Should your child grow restless during the service they are invited to exit the sanctuary at the Peace of Christ to attend Sunday School. 

• PreK and Kindergarten are in Room 001 and remain until the end of worship. 

• 1st - 5th Grade remain in worship. 

• Childcare for 0-23 months is in Room 105, and Room 012 for 2’s and 3’s. 

• Worship bags are available for all children in the narthex. 

 

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS TONIGHT AT 6

This special service recognizes our animals that make an important contribution to the beauty in our lives. All Morningside members with pets are welcome to bring them so that we may bless them and give thanks to God for their life. We ask that your pet is properly restrained either by carrier or leash, and if your pet is not “pet friendly” please bring a picture of him/her. 

 

CHILDREN’S ANNOUNCEMENT

We have a new structure for Preschool and Elementary Sunday School this year. All children attend worship until the Peace of Christ, when they will meet their teachers in the Narthex. Prekindergarten and Kindergarten go down to the Butterfly Room, 001. They will remain there until worship is over. Parents should pick-up from this room. 1st-3rd Graders go to the Lamb Room, 003. They will return to worship at the Offertory. They will remain in the entire ser-vice on the first and third Sundays of the month. All classes are using the Deep Blue Kids curricu-lum, so they are all hearing the same Bible story each Sunday! 

 

I NOMINATE…YOU!

We’ve reached that moment when nominations for Elders for the Session, Deacons for the Board of Deacons, and Members of the Associate Pastor Nominating Com-mittee have begun. Nomination forms will be in the bulletin, the Narthex, and the Welcome Center. Please be sure to ask the individual whom you nominated for permission before you submit their name for consideration to the Officer 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.

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

The Faith Development group invites you to read “A Social Creed for the Twenty-First Century,” which can be found on MPC’s website in the Welcome section under “What We Be-lieve” (www.morningsidepc.org/welcome/whatwebelieve). 

CHILDREN 

Children will learn about Moses and explore powerful acts of God this month. Today, we hear how God acted through unnamed women who courageously took action to save the life of a child. Exodus 1:8-14; 2:1-10. God would later use this child to lead God’s people to freedom.
