FELLOWSHIP HALL RENOVATIONS 

We will begin renovations in the Fellowship Hall starting on Monday, June 19 with a schedule anticipating completion in early August. Instead of socializing in Fellowship Hall after worship, we will move over to the patio, lawn and in the Welcome Center. This will all depend on the weather.

If so then please see the sign up sheet for flowers on the bulletin board outside of the Session Room.

WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR: MORNINGSIDE SINGS MUSICAL MAGIC 

This year’s gala is right around the corner. Prepare your calendars for two opportunities to watch Morningside Sings Musical Magic, featuring music from a variety of Disney movies and shows on Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20. Derek Matthews and Jeff Peters are currently preparing to bring you an unforgettable show. Many of the congregation are generously contributing time and talent to bring this year’s benefit production to life. We will continue our tradition of asking members to consider joining our 2017 Morningside Sings Patrons Circle to ensure that production expenses are covered and that we reach our goal of making significant donations to our music programs and mission ministries. Those who contrib-ute $100 or more will enjoy a patrons reception on Thursday, July 13 and be the very first to preview se-lect magical musical moments from this year’s gala.
