THOUGHT OF THE WEEK 
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. - Mother Teresa
 

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING 

Following worship this Sunday, August 10, we will take a congregational vote to call Rev. Drew Stockstill to become our full-time installed Associate Pastor. Please be here for this important meeting. Child care will continue.


SUNDAY SCHOOL KICK-OFF 

Don't miss the celebration of the new school year. This Sunday, August 10, from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. in Fellowship Hall, kids of all ages are invited to a light breakfast and fun activities with their parents. There will be face painting, animal costumes, games, music with Mrs. Shipley and "moving up" to new classes.

 

THORNWELL OFFERING

Four times a year, we receive a special offering during worship.  This Sunday, August 10, watch for a child-made envelope in your bulletin and consider what you are able to give to Thornwell Home for Children.  This Presbyterian Home in South Carolina serves children throughout the southeast as they encounter temporary or long-term needs for a home.  This year at Mission Camp we had a guest from Thornwell, and our kids asked great questions about the challenges the Thornwell children face and what can be done to help overcome them.


NEW ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES
When two different groups meet from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings, there will be plenty to discuss and learn, August 17 through September 28. Using Paul's letters to look at the issues the early Christians wrestled with, the class topic in Room 107 will be The First Christians and how we wrestle with many of the same issues today. Dr. Carol Senf will lead a discussion of The Psalms in Room 201. 
 

AUGUST CONGREGATIONAL LUNCH
Please respond by August 18, if you plan to attend the congregational lunch after worship on Sunday, August 24. Expect a fun, casual, end-of-year theme, as well as a report from our youth about their summer trips. Use the response card found in Sunday bulletins or RSVP to office@morningsidepc.org. Suggested donations are $10 adults, $5 children.
