SIGN-ME-UP SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 18 

Want to hang out with MPC folks and make a dif-ference in our city and our world? Want to chaper-one a youth lock-in? Or, maybe you're interested in joining a small group, teaching Sunday School, or helping with Worship and the Arts? We can hook you up! At Fellowship, this morning our communi-ty outreach ministry shepherds and some of our own ministry teams, will be available to share some of the opportunities they have for you to get in-volved. Food will be served and door prizes given. 

 

HUNGER WALK AND RUN—FEBRUARY 25 

Morningside will participate in the 2018 Hunger Walk Run, and we are hoping that you’ll join our team. Not only will we have a great time, we’ll have a great impact against hunger in our communi-ty! The money we raise will go a long way toward helping our neighbors in need. More than 1 in 4 Georgia children now live in a home where hunger is a regular worry. We hope you will join us for this family friendly mission event. Join or Donate to Team by going to http://bit.ly/2EcilpM. Let’s stay #1! 

 

BECOME A MEMBER! 

It is important to have a church home -- a place to worship God, a place to grow in your faith and to turn to in times of trouble. We will schedule a class soon and want to hear from you. We invite you to join us in our journey of faith. If you are interest-ed in becoming a member, please contact Baron.Mullis@morningsidepc.org

 

WOMEN'S ROUNDTABLE 

On Monday, February 26, we welcome Beth Wal-temath and Julie Green who will talk about their trip to Guatemala, the people they met and the work for the poor and powerless for change.

Come for dinner and fellowship at 6:30 p.m. This month's host is Hillery McNeill, 20 Stratford Place, Atlanta 30342. RSVP to Sarah Brownlee rsbrownlee1046@att.net

 

CREATED BY GOD—MARCH 1-3 

This study of human sexuality with a Christian foun-dation, offers both parents and youth grades 5,6, and 7 an opportunity to learn, grow, and celebrate the fact that we have been wonderfully created by God, and are called to responsible living as sexual beings. Contact Mardee for more information mrightmyer@morningsidepc.org

CELEBRATION!

On Friday, February 9, Morningside's treasurer, Bill Humphries, made the wire transfer that paid off Morningside's debt! We celebrated with a "mortgage burning" in worship last Sunday. Please join in thanking everyone who has worked so hard to bring Morningside to a place of greater financial sustainability. To everyone who worked on our Standing and Serving for Generations campaign, and to everyone who gave so gener-ously to make this dream a reality, thank you!!! 

 

WORSHIP READINESS 

Worship Readiness for all elementary children is during the 11 a.m. worship hour. We ask that all elementary children (and parents, too) join this class. This class meets on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Sundays through March 18. During these Sun-days, we will dismiss during the passing of the peace and meet in the Youth Room (Room 107) down the nursery hall. 

 

KNOW YOUR DEACONS 

The office of deacon dates from the dawn of Christianity when individuals were chosen to care for the needs of the congregation. MPC’s Board of Deacons has a special role in providing congre-gational nurture and spiritual care, welcoming new members into their church home and help-ing them find opportunities here for service and fellowship, and paying extra attention to shut-ins and others who need special care. Deacons also play a large part in the church’s hospitality.
