It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes. - Thomas Aquinas

There will be a brief congregational meeting following worship this Sunday, June 29. The purpose of this meeting is twofold: first to fill the vacancy on the session created by Bonnie Daneker's resignation due to moving.  Second, the congregation will vote on new bylaws, as required by the new Form of Government enacted by the Presbyterian General Assembly in 2012. Child car will continue. Copies of the bylaws are available on our website and at the church.

The eclectic and changing variety of food vendors will be back the fourth Thursday beginning at 5 p.m. and serving until 8 p.m.  The playground welcomes the kids while members are having great conversations with each other and with the vast number of neighborhood visitors. Next date following this Thursday is July 24 and August 28. Invite someone to join you this month!

There are 17 kids registered for elementary age Mission Camp and 17 more for Youth Track Mission Camp July 21-25.  That totals 34 attendees that we must transport to off-site outreach projects each day Monday-Wednesday.  Check your calendars NOW and let Melinda know if there is a day (or half day) that you can drive/chaperone to help us make this hands-on experience a reality for the children and youth of our church.  We must secure volunteers in June so that we have
the time to review the Child Protection Policy before the actual camp - any off-site volunteers are considered lead volunteers, which includes reading of CPP, a one hour training video on-line and background check (including driving record).

Are you planning to be in town for the Fourth of July, and seeking something for little ones to do in the days before the holiday?  Check out summer camp at Morningside Presbyterian Preschool.  Some openings also remain throughout other weeks of camp: July 7, 14, 21, 28. To enroll your preschooler, contact MPP Director Sarah Tomaka mpp@morningsidepc.org. For the next school year, there are still openings for toddlers (who must be 15 months old by Sept. 1).

MPC member Pam Sharpe invites you to her recital featuring "Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915 (1949)" at 4 p.m. in Morningside's sanctuary (assisted by Walter Huff on the piano). A reception will follow.

Family of Linda and Ann Claire Booker, Jackie Cleveland, Sandra Crawford, Rick Forbis, Ann Herndon, Finley Holaway, family and friends of Greg Holbrook, Jane Huff, Kaitlin Andry, Ron and Ann Reggio, Peggy Johnson Smith, Warren Johnson, Sr., Gayle Jones, Vicky Langford, Jan McMahan, Philip Marshall, the family of Gerry Paul, Gail Peters, Lloyd Prince, the friends and family of Hugh Ragsdale, Anne and Nate Reid, Dale Schexnayder, Jennifer and Jason Swafford, John Vytal, Steve Ware, Katrina Weis, and Ethel Young.
