Life@Morningside for July 30, 2017


WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

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

• Childcare for 0-23 months is in Room 105, and Room 012 for 2 and 3 year olds. 

• Pre-K/K are in room 001. 

 

FLOWERS THIS SUNDAY 

The flowers today are given to the Glory of God in honor of Dr. Charnita West and the awesome faculty at J.W. Dobbs Elementary School with gratitude for their commitment to the little children whom Jesus loves. 

 

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. 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 who wear silver nametags. 

 

SOCIAL MEDIA IS BUZZING 

Morningside wants to connect to the community more than ever! Are you handy when it comes to Twitter and Instagram? If so, our communications team would like to expand MPC’s reach on social media and could certainly use your help! Volunteer to be a part of the communications team by contacting Daisy Ottmann dazette@bellsouth.net

 

HELP THE KINUMBE-BAUMA FAMILY 

Thanks to hard work by Morningside’s work crew on Saturday, July 15, a second location of the Mommy and Me preschool and adult literacy program for refugee families is set to open in August. Our friend and church member, Georgine Kinumbe-Bauma will be a student with her kids, Dorcas and Ezekiel. The location is in walking distance of her apartment at The Lakes but the roads are busy. It will be easier for her to get to class and back with the donation of a double stroller and rain cover. If you have either to donate, contact Katye Watts. But wait… if you’re unable to help that way, perhaps you can help in a different way. Does your family have any early reading games or electronic toys laying around? Bienfait Kinumbe is looking for some exposure to the building blocks of reading, and it would very helpful to provide him with a Leapfrog or similar device to use on his own time. He is still learning the phonetics of the alphabet and the English label for each letter, so any activities related to those skills are especially pertinent. Literacy will open up many opportunities for Bienfait and his family, one of which will be reading his Bible! 

 

HELP WITH RIDES 

Help the Kinumbe-Bauma family with their transition here in the States with something as simple as offering a ride. 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.  www.signupgenius.com/go/409044ca5aa28a3ff2-rides

 

ADULT FAITH DEVELOPMENT 

The Adult Faith Development class will study the lives of women in the New Testament and debunk myths about their leadership and their limitations. Susan Hylen, professor of New Testament at Emory University, will lead on August 6 and August 27. Anna Miles, a student of Dr. Hylen’s, will lead on the same topic August 13 and August 20. 

 

COLLECTION FOR DOBBS ELEMENTARY 

Please support our partnership with Dobbs Elementary School as the teachers prepare for the new school year. We are collecting items to stock their classrooms and student incentive closet. Please see the list of requested items on the Mission bulletin board. 

 

WORSHIP TIME STARTS AT 11 A.M. BEGINNING SUNDAY, AUGUST 6! 

 

WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR 

Mark your calendars for Morningside’s fourth annual musical gala! This year’s production features music from your favorite Disney movies, both old and new, and will be sure to enchant the whole family. Invite your friends and neighbors to see these performances on Saturday, August 19 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, August 20 at 3 p.m. It will be magical! 

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 

We are in need of volunteers Saturday, August 12 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. The pantry is located at McIver Hall beside Druid Hills Presbyterian Church near the corner of Highland and Ponce. Please contact Laura Ulep at Lauraulep@gmail.com or Nancy Collins at ncollins0209@gmail.com if you are interested in helping.
