The flowers today are given to the glory of God in memory of the parents of Sarah Mercer Chatel: John Yager Mercer January 9, 1922 and Juanita Church Mercer January 12, 1920 and in honor of their legacy of love. 

 

PRESCHOOL DINE OUT 

Morningside Presbyterian Preschool is partnering with Doc Chey’s (Morningside location) for a new kind of Dine Out. Eat at Doc Chey’s anytime (lunch or dinner, dine in or take out) from Monday, January 15 - Sunday, January 21. Tell them you are supporting MPP, and they will give 25% of sales to the Preschool. Such an easy and fun way to support programs, materials and property improvements for the children. The preschool will have a few age group gatherings Tuesday - Thursday evenings, but everyone is welcome at any time! 

 

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. candidate at Candler Theological Seminary and former Associate Director of Children’s Ministry at Dunwoody United Methodist Church, will lead the program. 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, January 15.
