Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor is our preacher and Beth Waltemath, Associate for Mission and Faith Developement is our liturgist. 

• Large print hymnals and Bibles as well as hearing aids are available; ushers will gladly assist. 

• Please complete the information in the Friendship Pad at the end of the pews and pass the pads down and back again during the Concerns portion of worship. 

• Children are welcomed and encouraged in worship every Sunday. Worship bags for children can be found in the Narthex. Those who wish to attend Sunday School may do so after the Peace of Christ.

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS 

We’re pleased to announce our newest members: Erika Schenk, Will Owens, Georgine and Bienfait Kinumbe-Bauma, Ken Yunker, Kathleen and Knox Wilmer, and Courtney and Neale Nickels. Please help us in welcoming our newest addition to the Morningside family. 

 

FIRST FRIENDS 

First Friends is a program that will pair current MPC members with those who have recently joined our church family. After someone joins the church, you as a First Friend will keep the new members informed about special events and programs the church offers. Also you will introduce our new friends to other members of the congregation. If you or your family would be interested in participating or learning more about the program, please give your name to one of the deacons. Today the Deacons have on lovely nametags made by our 4 and 5-year-old friends. 

 

FRESH FLOWERS 

Would you like fresh flowers in worship? Would you like to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, new baby or the life of a friend? If so then please see the sign up sheet for flowers on the bulletin board outside of the Session Room. Pick the date, sign your name, write your email and phone number or contact Georgia Marshall, gkmarshall@gmail.com, or Lynn Daniel, lgd1@bellsouth.net, for details. 

 

BOOK-SIGNING PARTY 

Our pastor Rev. Dr. Baron Mullis has written a book titled Like An Ever-flowing Stream: Sermons of Call, Response, Vocation, and Love, that will be available this month and next. Be sure to join us for his book-signing party during our after-worship so-cial hour today. 

 

THERE’S A PRESCHOOL OPENING 

As families move, Morningside Presbyterian Preschool has had openings become available for one 3-year-old student and one PreK student. Tell your friends and neighbors to grab them up quickly. Contact Melinda Sandkam at 404-685-8758 or mpp@morningsidepc.org today. We also have a few openings for each week of summer camp still available. 

 

A LITTLE HELP GOES A LONG WAY 

The Kinumbe-Bauma family enjoys joining us, their family, on Sundays. The Sign-Up Genius has been updated to include dates in July. Since the worship service changed to 10 a.m., the pick-up time will be 9:30 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

 

MONTREAT 

The beauty about Montreat is that it offers a unique experience that we don’t want you to pass up. Montreat is certainly the place to be to relax your mind, body and spirit. Our retreat will be October 20 - 22. The Reverend Paul Timothy Roberts Sr., President of Johnson C. Smith Theological Seminary in Atlanta will be our guest speaker. If you would like to register, please pick up a registration form in the Narthex and return your completed form with an attached check to the office. 

 

DONUT DAYS 

Join us for Donut Days each Sunday (excluding July 2) with Mardee beginning at 9:15 a.m. Children’s Ministries will provide light refreshments in the playground and picnic area so that Mardee can meet the families of the church and get to know the children better. Families are encouraged to join us for at least one of these but are welcome to attend any or all. It’s great time for children to get a snack and run off some steam before worship at 10 a.m. 

 

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 contribute $100 or more will enjoy a patrons reception on Thursday, July 13 and be the very first to preview select magical musical moments from this year’s gala. 

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 

Volunteers are needed on Saturday, July 15 for painting and ceiling tile replacement at the new Mommy and Me facility at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. Mommy and Me is a respected women’s refugee literacy program which also provides child care and enrichment while the students are learning. This is an easy project for adults and teenagers. Help us secure a place in this program for our newest member Georgine Kinumbe-Bauma. Contact Holly Campbell hollycampbell1@gmail.com for details.
