Life @ Morningside for October 9, 2016

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor is our preacher, Beth Waltemath, Associate for Mission and Faith Development 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 wor-ship every Sunday. Should your child grow restless during the service they are invited to exit the sanc-tuary 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 in Rooms 003 and 005 and return at the Offertory. 

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

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

 

OFFERTORY ARRANGEMENT

Today’s Offertory arrangement of ‘O God, Our Help in Ages Past,’ is a stately setting of the hymn by Isaac Watts, using handbells, hand chimes and the flute. The original hymn tune ‘ST. ANNE’ was composed by William Croft in 1708 while he was the organist of the church of St. Anne, Soho. The hymn paraphrases the 90th Psalm. Ron Mallory’s arrangement uses flute to provide a lively countermelody to the original tune used in the introduction, interlude and ending sections. 

 

CAST YOUR VOTES

The Officer Nomination Committee is still open to suggestions for nominees to be elders on our Session, deacons for the Board of Deacons and our associate pastor search committee. Please ask your nominee’s permission before submitting his or her name.

In the meantime, help us stock up on items such as: gallon zip lock bags, individual microwaveable soups or mac-n-cheese, granola bars, snack size chips or pretzels, fruit cups or applesauce, bottled water, craft bags, toothbrushes, toothpastes, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants and soaps. 

 

ITEMS FOOD PANTRY NEEDS

We want to continue saying thanks to the volunteers who helped at the ICM food pantry! Due to low supplies at the Atlanta Community Food Bank, the pantry is in great need of canned chicken and tuna, Vienna sausages, ready-to-eat soup, pork and beans, jelly, spaghetti noodles, pasta sauce, juice boxes, 64oz juice bottles, granola bars, instant coffee, grocery bags, zip lock bags of all sizes, egg cartons, squirt soap and small hygiene kits.

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

No Faith Development Class next week. 

CHILDREN 

Children will learn about Moses and explore powerful acts of God this month. Today they’ll hear about the burning bush (Exodus 2:11-3:22) and that God still talks with us today, though in a dif-ferent way than God spoke to Moses. We hear God’s voice when we help someone in need, and when we love and care for others.
