ANNUAL COMMITMENT SEASON

The annual Commitment Season has begun at Morningside, which means it’s time to prayerfully consider your family’s pledge for 2017. 96% of the church budge comes from offerings, which means that our pledges allow Morningside’s lead-ers to know what funding will be available next year for facility maintenance, mission work, pro-grams and more! All are invited to turn in pledge cards on Commitment Sunday, October 30. You can also pledge online: https//secure.accessacs.com/access/memberlogin.aspx

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

Van Jensen will take us through a journey of seeking God in the comic books. 

CHILDREN 

Children will learn about Moses and explore powerful acts of God this month. In today’s Bible selection, Exodus 5:1-13.9, children will learn more about God’s powerful acts when Moses asks Pharaoh to let the Israelites go free. It’s always a good thing to remember what God has done for us and to be thankful.
