PRESBYTERIAN DISASTER ASSISTANCE 

In response to Hurricane Harvey, Irma, Maria and the earthquakes in Mexico, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is organizing a response to help those affected and restore hope. Please give to PDA by visiting www.pda.pcusa.org

 

COMMITMENT SEASON HAS BEGUN 

The annual Commitment Season has begun at Morningside, which means it's time to prayerfully consider your family's pledge for 2018. About 96 percent of the church budget comes from offerings, which means that our pledges allow Morningside's leaders to know what funding will be available next year for salaries, facility maintenance, mission work, children and youth programs and more. All are invited to turn in pledge cards on Commitment Sunday, October 29, but you can also pledge at any time online: https://secure.accessacs.com/access/memberlogin.aspx

 

NOMINATE TODAY 

We are seeking your nominations for Elders for the Session and Deacons for the Board of Deacons. Nomination forms will be in the Narthex, and the Welcome Center. 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. 

 

UNTIL NEXT TIME 

Our Beloved tenor section leader, John Young is moving with Ken Yunker to begin an exciting new career with the Sarasota Opera Company. Through each career move that took him elsewhere, John says MPC always has been his home church. We thank John for his wonderful music leadership and wish God’s greatest blessings to John and Ken while we are apart. 

 

UPCOMING NEW MEMBERS’ CLASS 

It is time to schedule our next new members’ class, and we would like to hear from you if you’re interested in joining so that we may schedule accordingly. Please let Baron Mullis know of your interest in joining the church either by contacting him directly at Baron.Mullis@morningsidepc.org, or you may check the “interested in becoming a member” box on the friendship pad and provide your e-mail or phone number. We look forward to welcoming our next class of new members! 

 

ALL SAINTS’ OBSERVANCE 
NOVEMBER 5 

All Saints’ Day is a day of observance in the liturgical calendar of the church in which we celebrate the lives of those whose race is run, who have kept the faith, and whose witness lives on among us in the communion of the saints. In our communion liturgy, those who passed from this life this year will be remembered with thanksgiving to God for their lives and witnesses. If there are names you would like remembered in this prayer, contact office@Morningsidepc.org
