A LITTLE HELP GOES A LONG WAY 

Do you have an hour to spare? If so, the office invites you to volunteer once a week. The times available are Monday or Friday from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and/or Tuesday from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Please contact the office, office@morningsidepc.org, if you would like to help by answering the phone, stuffing bulletins and greeting visitors. 

 

VOLUNTEER SEARCH CONTINUES 

Interested in local mission and want to work with one of Atlanta’s best men’s shelters? MPC is looking for a Shepherd to organize six dinners (one every other month) and one to two special collections per year for Clifton Sanctuary Ministries. If you are interested, please contact mission chairs Tony Fishpaw, tonydfishpaw@gmail.com, or Nancy Collins, ncollins0209@gmail.com

 

IF IT’S FREE IT’S FOR ME 

How often do you get the opportunity to acquire not one but TWO pianos? Morningside is giving away two pianos and would like them to go to good homes! How much do you have to pay? However much it costs for you to move them (and that’s not up to us)! These pianos play adequately and will be of great help to those learning to play piano, or for those who want a gently used piano at a huge discount. If you are interested, contact Jonathan Crutchfield by the end of February at jcrutchfield@morningsidepc.org
