THOUGHT OF THE WEEK 
The African Wisdom tradition of Ubuntu says my humanity is bound up in yours for we can only be human together. We are different precisely in order to realize our need of one another. - Desmond Tutu

A SUNDAY MORNING PICNIC, OCTOBER 11, TO WELCOME SARAH KATE

The children of Morningside will host a Sunday morning picnic to welcome Sarah Kate DeWyngaert to her role as the new Director of Children's Ministries. The children invite their family members and all their friends to come enjoy juice and sweet treats this Sunday, October 11 from 10:15 to 10:45 a.m. Gather at the picnic tables near the playground to join in the festivities. This will be Sarah Kate's first activity on her first Sunday in her new role. She is excited to begin her adventure with the children as they celebrate her arrival. This is a wonderful way to rejoice with our children as they welcome Sarah Kate. All members are invited to participate in the fun!

JOURNEY-OCTOBER 11
Support Morningside's mission to the residents of Journey Men's Shelter by contacting shepherd Tamara Nix to let her know if you would like to serve the meal on the 11th (tamaranix@alumni.duke.edu, 404.805.8955).

COMMITMENT SEASON
Mission has always been of primary importance to Morningside, but this year we're embarking on an effort to raise the annual budget for Mission, part of a multi-year effort to raise it to 10 percent of the church's budget. If we successfully complete our goal of a 2 percent increase this Commitment season, we'll be on our way to making our Mission budget a true tithe, and increasing the support we give to those in need in our community. Please consider helping this effort when you decide your pledge. Commitment Sunday is October 25, but you can also pledge at any time online:

MITTEN TREE COLLECTION FOR OUR HOUSE THROUGH OCTOBER 30
October brings cooler weather and our annual collection of new mittens, gloves, hats and scarves for the children at Our House. Gently used coats and sweaters may also be donated. Please hang your gifts on the Mitten Tree, which will blossom in the preschool alcove throughout the month of October, or place them in the basket in the welcome center. Our House is a childcare and support center located in Decatur that serves children and families facing homelessness. 

HALLOWEEN COSTUME COLLECTION FOR OUR HOUSE THROUGH OCTOBER 18

Do you have outgrown costumes cluttering your closets from years past? We are collecting gently used costumes for the children of Our House so that they can take part in the childhood tradition of dressing up for Halloween. Drop off any size costume up to size 6 in the welcome center by Sunday, October 18.
