Life@Morningside for January 7, 2018


WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presbyterian Church. 

Rev. Dr. Baron Mullis, Senior Pastor is our preacher and Emma Neishloss, Associate Pastor Elect is our liturgist. 

• Large print hymnals and Bibles as well as hearing aids are available; ushers will gladly assist.

WHOLENESS AND HEALING SERVICE 

We welcome friends and family to Morningside’s Service of Healing and Wholeness tonight at 7 p.m. 

 

EPIPHANY BANNERS 

The Christmas Day-Epiphany banners are titled “Can you see the Christ?” and “The Glory of the Lord came, Christ Jesus.” They represent the love, hope, joy and strength of God bringing forth Christ incarnate to the world. The purple shades moving into vibrant batiks show the arms and heart of God giving the person of Christ to our lives. You can see the powerful love and hope of Jesus in the golds, oranges and intense blues as they rise up from the purples spreading into the world. The gift of Christ given to us on Christmas Day and the recognition of Christ as the son of God by the Magi with their gifts on Epiphany are represented in both banners. 

 

CHRISTIAN SYMPATHY 

We offer our deepest sympathy to Holly Campbell and her family on the death of Holly’s mother, Elaine Johnson, who passed away on Saturday, December 30 in Westminster, Colorado.

MPC Couples is back at it again! The Bremers will host on Friday, January 12 at their home, 785 Cumberland Rd. NE. Please plan to join them, and feel free to share the invitation with others who may enjoy the group!

HANDBELLS

CREATED BY GOD 

“Created by God” is a study of human sexuality with a Christian foundation commissioned by the United Methodist Church specifically for fifth and sixth grade students and their parents. It offers both an opportunity to learn, and celebrate the fact that we have each been wonderfully created by God, and are called to responsible living as sexual beings. “Created by God” involves a weekend commitment for parents and young people, Thursday, February 8 - Saturday, February 10. “Created by God” ministry provides an arena where accurate information and proper terminology can be gained and practiced. Melissa Lerner, M.Div. candi-date at Candler Theological Seminary and former Associate Director of Children’s Ministry at Dun-woody United Methodist Church, will lead the pro-gram. Melissa trained with the writer and developer of the “Created by God” curriculum and has led workshops around the Southeast. The fee for this event is $45 per family, covering the cost of the book, supplies, food (dinner on Friday, lunch on Saturday, and snacks), and leadership. (Please plan to participate regardless of the fee - we will cover all participants.) Deadline to register is Monday, Janu-ary 15.
