This Sunday's celebration, observed the first Sunday of every October, promotes Christian unity and cooperation. The tradition originated in Pittsburg, PA, in 1933. 
During worship, notice the various fabrics and loaves of bread on the Communion Table, symbolizing our global connection to each other through food and cloth. Today's choir anthem connects us to our Jewish brothers and sisters; the Communion music using Taizé chant connects us to France; and our creed connects us to the Maasai people of East Africa. Join your fellow travelers at the table of grace.

The annual Commitment Season has begun at Morningside, which means it's time to prayerfully consider your family's pledge for 2016. About 96 percent of the church budget comes from offerings, which means that our pledges allow Morningside's leaders to know what funding will be available next year for mission work, children and youth programs and more. All are invited to turn in pledge cards on Commitment Sunday, 10/25, but you can also pledge at any time online: https://secure.accessacs.com/access/memberlogin.aspx?sn=142543

For the academic year 2015-16, Morningside will have interns from both Columbia Theological Seminary and Candler School of Divinity at Emory University. Sarah Smith joins us from CTS and Anna Miles joins us from Candler. Please introduce yourselves and help them feel at home here!
