NEW MEMBERS CLASS 

If you are interested in becoming a member at Morningside Presbyterian Church or you know someone who is, then please contact Baron Mullis baron.mullis@morningsidepc.org. We are currently preparing to schedule our next New Member class. 

 

RUNNING OF THE EGGS 

It’s not time yet… but it’s not too early to start bringing in the eggs. It will take close to three thousand eggs to pull off our much-beloved, community-wide Easter Egg Hunt the Saturday before Easter, and we can’t do it without you. You can pick up bags of empty eggs in the narthex, fill and return them or bring new filled eggs to the containers in the narthex. No nuts please! To volunteer please contact Sarah Tomaka sarah.tomaka@gmail.com. Even if you don’t have children, you won’t want to miss this.

FEED A STUDENT 

Feed a hungry student! (Students are always hungry.)

If you would like to sign up to bring a meal please go here: https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/g07733

 

CATCH A CAT 

From now until Sunday, March 26, Morningsiders have a crucial opportunity to shape our future for the coming three years. Our Strategic Planning team is offering two tools to solicit opinions, wants and dreams from our congregation. Your responses will help the team, Session and staff develop the plan we’ll follow through 2020. One tool is the Congregational Assessment Tool (CAT), a survey used to build our previous plan. You may take it online via our website, www.morningsidepc.org. The survey must be completed in one sitting and takes as little as 20 minutes. People who share an email address can each input an individual CATscan. Paper copies are also available in the church office. 

 

WOMEN’S ROUNDTABLE 

On Monday, March 27 our speaker will be Beth Waltemath, presenting a special Lenten program. Members and friends are invited for dinner and fellowship at 6:30 p.m. at the home of Sanda Means, 1071 McLynn Avenue 30306. RSVP to Sarah Brownlee rsbrownlee1046@att.net

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

Our Lenten series on the spiritual migration from belief-based to practice-based faith traditions looks at Eastern traditions’ understandings of embodied practices. Ken Sharpe will lead the class.
