Life @ Morningside for November 6, 2016


WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor is our preacher, Sarah Are, 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.

THE FLOWERS THIS MORNING 

The flowers in the sanctuary are given to the glory of God by Leslie and Lloyd Prince and in celebration of Athul Isaac Allen, who was sweetly added to their family last week. 

 

MUSIC THIS MORNING 

Maurice Duruflé (1902-1986) composed one of the best known Requiem settings of the twentieth century. Duruflé set each of the nine movements to ancient melodies - Gregorian chant– used for centuries to set the mass texts. The juxtaposition of lyrical melodies with texts that speak of the sorrow and pain of life brings both pain and comfort into focus. The final movement, In Paradisum, gives great comfort as the soul wings its way into the next realm. Originally scored for orchestra, Duruflé reduced the orchestration to a fiendishly difficult organ score. We welcome Dr. Boyd Jones, professor of organ studies at Stetson University (FL) as our guest organist today. He is a concert organ and harpsichord recitalist, and is featured on a widely acclaimed recording of the Duruflé Requiem sung by the Stetson University Choir.

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

Next Sunday Ken Sharpe takes us through a two part series of imagery in the spiritual life. He starts with the topic called “Symbology of the Temple of the Sagrada Familia.” 

CHILDREN 

Children will learn more about Moses, God’s people and how God cares for all people. Today, we hear how God provides for the people once they escape Egypt - all the food and water needed but no more. God expects obedience while providing for our needs. Exodus 15:22 - 17:7.
