A good amount of work has gone into designing the membership section of our website to make it a secure and useful tool, but not everyone understands how to use it and how powerfully it can connect us. So everyone is invited to a hands-on tutorial after worship in Fellowship Hall this Sunday, September 21. Demonstrations by our members will be set up around the room, and if you bring your own laptop or tablet, guides will help you enter your own information.

It's time to nominate Elders for the Session and Deacons for the Board of Deacons. On Sundays, September 21 and 28, nomination forms will be in the bulletin, the Narthex and the Welcome Center. This is your opportunity to nominate someone to be a candidate for office. Prayerfully consider your nominee(s), then ask their permission before you submit their name for consideration to the Officer Nominating Committee. You can turn in nomination forms to the church office, place them in the offering plate or put them in one of the boxes in the Narthex and Welcome Center. The Officer Nominating Committee will announce the final slate of officers at a Congregational Meeting on Sunday, October 12 when elections will take place.

On Sunday, September 28, Morningside will join with representatives of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta to install Drew Stockstill to the office of Associate Pastor at MPC. This special service will take place at the 11 a.m. service of worship with Dana Hughes preaching. A reception will follow.
