THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier. - Albert Schweitzer

LGBT & FRIENDS
Join us tonight for LGBT & Friends dinner and program "Marriage Equality in the Church," facilitated by Baron Mullis. We will meet from 7-9 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. All are welcome. RSVP to lgbtandfriends@morningsidepc.org.

SEASON OF SERVICE
This Sunday, February 2, we kick off Season of Service with MPC youth collecting the annual Souper Bowl offering. Season of Service is a challenge to you and your friends to participate in the wide variety of mission work MPC is involved with. Find time to check out a new outreach or bring an old friend or new member with you as you help out - meet the Plus 1 challenge! MPC hopes you will get connected while helping those in need. Many pre-season outreaches have already taken place. We will officially kick off the event on Sunday, February 2 with the youth collecting the annual Souper Bowl offering and will continue throughout the month to highlight outreaches and provide opportunities to volunteer.

YOUTH GROUP
2014 is starting off as a busy year of new and "tried-and-true" events for Morningside Youth! In addition to this Sunday's Souper Bowl collection, when youth will collect money in soup pots following worship as a part of the Souper Bowl of Caring, a nationwide effort to raise funds for local charities, that evening, youth will gather for a "1st Half" Super Bowl Party hosted by the Attwoods.
