Life @ Morningside for January 22, 2017


WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Beth Waltemath, Associate for Mission and Faith Development, is our preacher and Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor, 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. Those who wish to attend Sunday School may do so after the Peace of Christ. 

• Pre-K through 5th grade are in room 001. 

 

BAPTISM THIS MORNING

Emma Kate Ward, child of Magan and Daniel Ward, will receive the sacrament of baptism this morning. 

 

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING 

The session has called a congregational meeting following worship on Sunday, January 29. The purpose of this annual meeting is for the congregation to receive the budget as information, to act on the pastors’ terms of call, and to hear announcements related to the life of the church. Child care will continue.

SPECIAL SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR PRE-K THROUGH 5TH GRADE 

Today, we are excited to host Terra McVoy from Decatur's Little Shop of Stories to read to our children. Because MPC is sponsoring a refugee family this month, we wanted to help our children learn more through stories about what it's like to be a refugee and why it is im-portant to help out. Hope your children will attend this engaging learning opportunity in room 001, from after the Passing of the Peace until noon.
