ADULT
With the help of reference works and study methods, we can read and study the Bible and uncover many of its layers of meaning for ourselves. This class is a brief introduction to Bible study that will, hopefully, whet attendees' appetites for studying and exploring the Bible on their own.

Morningside's Jennye Guy continues this class at 9:45 a.m. in Room 201 using the book of 1 John as a teaching example and an overview of one system of study--The Inductive Method.

If you have a little one, age 18 months through fifth grade, join us in the Fellowship Hall this Sunday, September 13 at 10 a.m. for face painting, crafts, dress-up games, and light refreshments.

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK 
"Christian love draws no distinction between one enemy and another, except that the more bitter our enemy's hatred, the greater his need of love. Be his enmity political or religious, he has nothing to expect from a follower of Jesus but unqualified love. In such love there is not inner discord between the private person and official capacity. In both we are disciples of Christ, or we are not Christians at all." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

LGBT & FRIENDS
LGBT & Friends will kick off their 2015/2016 season tonight, September 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. We will gather at the home of Mardee Rightmyer and Julie Green (2707 Pharr Rd NE 30317-Eastlake area). This month's meeting, Marriage Equality: Check. So What's Next? will be led by Morningside member Tim Holbrook. Dinner will be provided (a $10 donation towards the meal cost is suggested). RSVP to lgbtandfriends@morningsidepc.org.
