SERVICE OF HEALING AND HOPE 

Morningside will offer our traditional Service of Healing and Hope tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. The darkness of the sanctuary provides a comforting place to receive prayers of healing and hope and, for those who wish, the laying on of hands by Pastors, Elders, and Deacons. If you are in need of Healing and Hope we encourage you to come. 

 

HAVE YOU SIGNED UP YET?

Volunteers arrive at the shelter (1180 University Drive, 30306) at 6 p.m. to warm and serve the meal to residents as they arrive from work. Leftovers are prepared for lunches the next day and put in a refrigerator, and the area is cleaned up. We leave by 8 p.m. after visiting with the residents. We have scheduled our volunteer dates for Wednesday - Sunday (January 11 - 15 and February 8 - 12). To sign up please see the signup sheet on the bulletin board.

JOIN MORNINGSIDE’S POETRY GROUP

By being a part of Morningside’s Poetry Group you will be able to discuss a wide range of poems amongst your peers. Start the new year off by attending our first poetry group on Thursday, January 12 at 12:30 p.m. in Baron’s office.

Breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. at the Solarium 321 W. Hill St. in Oakhurst and we will register and get our assignment and work until 1 p.m. What a great way to honor Dr. King.

CHILDREN 

The Shepherd’s Story: The first people to hear the announcement of Jesus’ birth were the shep-herds. Shepherds lived a difficult life, spending much of their time outside watching over the herd to protect it. God’s choice of the shepherds as the first recipients of the wonderful news of the birth of God’s Son sends a clear message that this good news is for everyone. Luke 2:8-20
