In November, the Adult Faith Development Class that meets in Room 201 will be led by Lindsay Armstrong. Her topic will be Trending Church: Innovation, Mission and Changes Shaping the 21st Century Church. Join us as we explore current trends and the shape of things that draw us rather than drive us into new ways of being. Rev. Armstrong is a friend of Morningside and on the front lines of fresh expressions of church as the Executive Director of the New Church Development Commission of our presbytery.

The Preschool Class will hear the story What is It? and learn about the special food God provided for the people as they traveled through the desert. Elementary classes will continue their worship with the reading of 1Samuel 25:2-42 to learn how Abigail acted as peacemaker between David and her foolish husband.

Our next lunch and program will be this Wednesday, November 12 in Fellowship Hall at noon. Our guest speaker is Lewis Cobb, who played baseball for the South Cobb Bears in '57 and '58.

You are welcome, but not required, to bring lunch with you.
