CONGREGATIONAL MEETING TODAY

The Session has set a Congregational Meeting immediately following worship, for the purpose of electing elders and deacons to the Class of 2019, as well as the ONC and APNC. 

 

TODAY IS COMMITMENT SUNDAY

All are invited to come to the front of the church to pledge support for Morningside in 2017. Our pledges allow church leaders to plan Morning-side’s budget for the year ahead, as 96 percent of our funding comes from offerings. This year, we hope to increase our pledges by 2 percent in order to reach our goals in 2017. If you have already made your pledge early or online, we invite you to come forth with an “I have pledged” form to show your support of Commitment Sunday. 

 

THEOLOGY ON TAP

Our next Theology On Tap will be hosted by John Watson on Tuesday, November 1 at 7 p.m. John can be found at 1397 Harvard Road, 30306. 

 

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

Daylight Savings Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, November 6. We “fall back” and gain an extra hour of sleep. Be sure to set your clocks back one hour before going to bed 

 

ALL SAINTS’ OBSERVANCE - NOVEMBER 6

All Saints’ Day is a day of observance in the liturgical calendar of the church in which we celebrate the lives of those whose race is run, who have kept the faith, and whose witness lives on among us in the communion of the saints. In our communion liturgy those who passed from this life this year will be remembered with thanksgiving to God for their lives and witnesses. If there are names you would like remembered in this prayer, contact office@Morningsidepc.org
