POSITION AVAILABLE 

We need our community to spread the word that we have one PreK student opening here at Morningside Presbyterian Preschool and one assistant teacher opening. We are seeking to fill both as soon as possible. So, tell your friends and neighbors that we have an opening for a PreK student in our warm and nurturing program. And we are interviewing to fill a part-time position to assist in our 5-day Threes class (M-F 8:30-1:30). Contact Director Melinda Sandkam today to join the fabulous staff at MPP.

Please contact Yoga teacher and personal trainer, Pam Sharpe (yogapam@bellsouth.net) for more information. 

 

CONGREGATIONAL LUNCH 

Join us for our next congregational lunch on Sunday, September 24. Be sure to invite your friends and family to church on this wonderful day so that they may join in on this great occasion. 

 

DO YOU HAVE THESE ITEMS? 

Do you 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 be 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. 

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 

We are in need of one or more volunteers for midday Meals on Wheels delivery in our Morningside -Virginia Highland neighborhood. The route takes about one hour or less, depending on traffic. Pick up is at First Presbyterian Church in Midtown. If you would like to volunteer (or if you already volunteer and would be willing to take another day), please contact Sarah Brownlee at 404-876-3572 or rsbrownlee1046@att.net. The open days are first Fridays. 

 

NEED SAMSUNG HELP! 

If you are familiar with Android phones, particularly Samsung, please help! We need you to help Bienfait with a problem he’s having with his phone. He needs help deleting items in his storage. If you have any questions please call Holly Campbell at 404-435-0676.
