BECOME A MEMBER 

It's important to have a church home - a place to worship God amongst others, a place to grow your faith in and to turn to in times of trouble and celebration. Morningside wants to be that place for you. If you are interested in becoming a member, please join our next New Member Class on Sunday, June 18 at 9 a.m. Please contact Baron Mullis, Baron.mullis@morningsidepc.org if you have questions. 

 

FLOWERS 

The flowers today are given to the Glory of God to welcome Mardee Rightmyer as the Director of Children’s Ministries. 

 

MUSIC THIS MORNING 

Today's Anthem, the 19th Century hymn How Can I Keep from Singing, was composed by Robert Low-ry. In this arrangement, composer Cathy Moklebust has paid particular attention to the word "singing" through rhythmic and chordal punctuation, singing bell technique, malleted phrases and round canon. The hymn is about perspective and opens with an assertion that the troubles of this world are nothing when compared to the new creation that is to come. Our Offertory is from arranger Malcolm C. Wilson who has crafted the Andante setting of Antonio Vivaldi's Baroque masterpiece Concerto in G Major. The arrangement features handbells, strings and organ. 

 

RIDES TO THE CHURCH 

The Kinumbe-Bauma family enjoys joining us, their family, on Sundays. The Sign-Up Genius has been updated to include dates in June and July. With the worship service changing to 10 a.m., the pick-up time will be 9:30 a.m. On Sunday, June 18 we need someone to pick them up early (8:30 a.m.) so they can join our New Members Class at 9:00 a.m. Please consider giving the Kinumbe-Bauma family a ride and helping them get to know one more member of their church community. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044ca5aa28a3ff2-rides
