THOUGHT OF THE WEEK 

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi  

 
IMPROVEMENTS TO OUR EXISTING BUILDING
Another strong component of our Standing and Serving for Generations campaign is improvements to our existing building.  It is not only important that we take care of this structure for our immediate needs but for those who will come after us, our children and grandchildren.  While a building is just bricks and mortar, within it is a legacy for generations to come.  Within this proposed scope of work are repairs to the roof, windows and masonry; enhancing the church grounds with additional parking and landscaping; repairs and replacements to our HVAC systems; updates to the pipe organ and handbells and upgrading electrical and safety systems with additional lighting and smoke alarms.  All of these things are essential to Morningside being here for today and the future and it is our good stewardship that will make this possible.  Please pray about your support for this campaign and let's all stretch ourselves to give beyond what we think is enough.  Your gift and our combined gifts will ensure that this church continues to be a force in this neighborhood, the city of Atlanta and beyond.  

DAY AT THE CAPITOL
If you're looking for ways to actively engage your legislators, we hope you'll join Central Outreach & Advocacy Center and Presbyterians for a Better Georgia for "A Day at The Capitol" today, February 24 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. We'll gather at Central Presbyterian Church for coffee, networking, and legislative updates before walking across the street to the Capitol for guided visits and meetings with your legislators. For more information, contact Drew Stockstill dstockstill@morningsidepc.org.

DINE OUT TO SUPPORT THE PRESCHOOL
All are invited to enjoy dinner at La Tavola (992 Virginia Ave.) tonight, February 24to benefit MPP.  20% of the evening's profits are donated to the preschool.   Mention MPC when you make a reservation and check in that evening. Parties including children are invited to dine before 7 p.m.
