Life@Morningside for September 24, 2017


WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor is our preacher and Eliza Smith, Intern, and Beth Waltemath, Associate for Mission and Faith Development, are our liturgists. 

• 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. 

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

• Pre-K/K in room 001. 

 

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING 

The Session has called a congregational meeting following worship today for the purposes of electing a congregational representative to the Officer Nominating Committee. (The Schoen family has moved to Berlin, so Julie has stepped down from her term.) 

 

I NOMINATE...YOU! 

We are seeking your nominations for Elders for the Session and Deacons for the Board of Deacons. Nomination forms will be in the bulletin, the Narthex, and the Welcome Center. Please be sure to ask the individual whom you nominated for permission before you submit their name for consideration to the Officer Nominating Committee. You can turn in nomination forms to the church office, the offering plate or in one of the boxes in the Narthex and Welcome Center. 

 

WOMEN’S ROUNDTABLE 

We’re delighted to kick off Women’s Roundtable for 2017-18 with our Director of Children’s Ministries, Mardee Rightmyer, as our speaker. Come for dinner and fellowship at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, September 25. This month’s host is Sanda Means, 1071 McLynn Avenue NE 30306. RSVP to rsbrownlee1046@att.net

 

MONTREAT 

There are few things so enjoyable as a hot cup of coffee on a cool autumn morning on the porch of the William Black Lodge in the North Carolina Mountains with your family around you… so you won’t want to miss our congregational retreat in Montreat coming up in October. We frequently fill the William Black Lodge, so don’t wait to fill out your registration form. They are available in the Narthex and Welcome Center. Turn them into church office with an attached check. Our retreat is appropriate for all ages and is a wonderful way to “go deeper” with your church family. 

 

PRESCHOOL HAS AN OPENING 

We need our community to spread the word that we have one PreK student opening here at Morningside Presbyterian Preschool. We are seeking to fill this spot as soon as possible. Tell your friends and neighbors that we have an opening for a PreK student in our warm and nurturing program. 

 

DINNER AT EL TACO 

On Tuesday, September 26 bring your friends and neighbors out to El Taco on N. Highland to enjoy dinner. Be sure to tell them you are with the Preschool as they then give a percentage of the evening’s profits to the school’s programs. 

 

PLEASE HELP 

Through no fault of his own, Bienfait is in great need of a new job and any work on the weekends he can get. He is a painter and carpenter and can do many other construction-related work. If anyone has a connection to a full time job or has work at their own home he might be able to do, please contact Holly Campbell at hollycampbell1@gmail.com or Sandy Ryan at amSr@outlook.com

 

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS 

This special service recognizes our animals that make an important contribution to the beauty in our lives. All Morningside members with pets are welcome to bring them on Sunday, October 1 at 6 p.m. so that we may bless them and give thanks to God for their life. We ask that your pet is properly restrained either by carrier or leash, and if your pet is not “pet friendly” please bring a picture of him/her. 

 

SUPPORT INTOWN WITH FUN

Join us for a great evening of bbq, brews, and music on Tuesday, October 3 at the new Monday Night Brewing facility in the West End. Tickets are now available for $25, which gets you free beer, BBQ from Sweet Auburn BBQ, and live music. Stop by anytime between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. for a great time with all proceeds supporting Intown. For additional information please contact Melissa Lerner at melissahlerner@gmail.com

 

MORNINGSIDE MINGLE 

Hopefully you’ll be with us at the Morningside Mingle! The deacons invite you to come enjoy fellowship with new and old Morningside friends at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 7 at the home of Tish and Charles Woolley for this year’s Morningside Mingle. Taco bar and drinks will be provided. This event is for adults only. There will be an email invitation sent through Paperless Post. Please let one of the deacons know if you don't receive it! Please RSVP via the invite by October 7. 

 

MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR OCTOBER 8! 

Please plan to stay after service on Sunday, October 8 for the presentation of Morningside’s 3 year Strategic Plan, 2018-2020. The presentation will include insights and learnings from the congregational survey and will share prioritized initiatives identified from congregational input throughout the past months.
