Presbyterians have a history of working together to build a more just, resilient, and sustainable future. We will take a special offering on Palm Sunday. When you give to One Great Hour of Sharing, you are supporting the gifts and talents of people and communities all over the world.

ONE BRICK AT A TIME 

Morningside has been teaming up with other congregations to help build a home for Ms. Valdez and her three sons.

Be a part of this experience by visiting atlantahabitat.volunteerhub.com to volunteer. 

 

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED 

We are in need of volunteers Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Intown Collaborative Ministry pantry to distribute food to homeless and in-need folks in our area.

Coro Vocati, a professional choral ensemble, will sing at Morningside Presbyterian Church Saturday evening, April 8 beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets at the door are $20.00. This group sang at MPC to rave acclaim last year. Bring friends with you to hear this stellar Atlanta-based choral ensemble. 

 

NYUMBANI PROGRAM 

As part of our ongoing partnership with the Nyumbani Program in Kenya, Morningside is gathering supplies for young women and young men (ages 12-21) in Nyumbani’s Lea Toto Program. Throughout the month of April, you are invited to bring the following materials: 

• School supplies, especially pens, pencils, or erasers. Please do not bring paper or notebooks as the standard paper size in Kenya is A4 and our letter-sized paper (8. x 11”) will not be accepted for school assignments. 

• Clothes for adolescents and young adults

Please place the materials in the boxes in the narthex.

Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

Beth Waltemath will continue to lead us in a Lenten series focused on practice-based Christianity by looking at key figures in contemplative Christianity from the Bible, Medieval saints, and contemporary theologians.
