On Sunday, May 1, all Fourth and Fifth Grade students will have the opportunity to participate in Bible Sunday.  This is a new celebration implemented by Children's Ministry as a part of Morningside Presbyterian Church's efforts to welcome children into worship and encourage families to worship together. MPC Children's Ministry wants every child to have their own Bible, and we want to make sure that every child who walks through our doors has the opportunity to learn and discover the wonderful messages from God that we find in the Bible.  The Fourth and Fifth Graders will receive their Bibles as a gift from the congregation during the 11 a.m. worship service.
