OFFICE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 

The church office is in need of volunteers to offer their time for one hour a week. If you have an hour to spare please contact the church office, office@morningsidpc.org and let Alicia, our office administrator, know of your availability. 

 

MUSIC TODAY 

The Concert Choir from the University of South Carolina will lead in worship this morning then will present a concert at 3 p.m. Under the direction of Dr. Alicia Walker, as part of the concert, the choir will sing one of choral music’s most famous compositions - the Magnificat (Collegium Regale) by Herbert Howells. Come join us for the unforgettable experience. A freewill offering will be taken. 

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 

We provide childcare during worship for infants through kindergarten and we are looking for a few good folks to volunteer their time to play with these littlest members. We especially need help in the PreK/Kindergarten age group. We want to provide safe and fun childcare and can’t do it without you! We’ll have suggested activities, so no lesson planning required! Please contact Mardee Rightmyer at Mrightmyer@morningsidepc.org or 404.876.7396 to volunteer. 

 

PICK-A-PAN 

Join us to help prepare a dinner for the men at Clifton Shelter on Saturday, November 25. Please Pick-a Pan from the Narthex today and bring your dish to the Clifton Shelter by 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 25. Contact Ann Watson at 404.273.9515 or atwatson@mindspring.com if you have any questions. We have a great time sharing the evening with these men, however, it is not necessary for you to stay and serve. 

 

RHO READERS 

If you’ve read the best-selling novel The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry—or just want an excuse to wait around for the choral concert to begin—you’re invit-ed to the Session Room by our co-ed book group, the RHO Readers for a discussion led by Carol Senf to-day at 12:30 p.m. Discussions are informal and open to all. 

 

CHILI COOK-OFF COMING SOON 

The time for Morningside’s famous Chili Cook-off Competition will be here Sunday, December 10 at 6 p.m. immediately following the children’s Christmas Pageant. Do you have what it takes to go up against Anne Barnette as she prepares to defend her title against all other chili chefs? Bring your best chili and let our panel of expert judges decide. Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090945a4af29a46-chili

MORAVIAN LOVEFEAST 

Tea, a lemon/orange yeast roll, beeswax candles, Christmas carols and anthems by our choirs will be combined Sunday morning, December 3. The Moravians began this tradition of sharing a simple meal in 1727. Servant leaders called Dieners will serve the meal and candles in the Sanctuary as carols and anthems are sung. We hope this tradition continues here at MPC. Join us for this beautiful service of worship.

CHRISTMAS PAGEANT

We also need “stage parent” volunteers to assist with costumes, lines and jitters. Current MPC and MPP parents will receive information about how to sign up and rehearsal schedules—but if your child would like to participate and you do not receive the info, let Mardee Mrightmyer@morningsidepc.org know. 

 

FAITH DEVELOPMENT AT MORNINGSIDE 

Can a film be a medium for engaging with one’s faith? Today we began a series of discussions about the benefits of visual media to engage faith development as we think about the Gospel from a different perspective. 

 

FAITH FORMATION FOR FAMILIES 

Next Sunday, Mardee will lead a discussion that reflects on what children say about God.
