Worship service with pastor carrier

On Sunday, September 18, 2016, as part of our evening service, hundreds of Morningsiders joined together for one more worship service at the home of our beloved music pastor Larry Carrier as he continues his battle with cancer and prepares to meet the Lord. Here is a 3 minute video of the special time of worship with our worship leader of 28 years.


On August 14, 2016, Morningside had a special service to name the music hall after Pastor Carrier. The following was presented to him on a plaque: 

Pastor Carrier, today out of respect for your more than 28 years of faithful service to the music ministry of Morningside Baptist Church, we are naming the current choir room that is located in the (Larkin Earl) Harvey Wing as the Larry Carrier Music Hall. This room's new name reflects our love and appreciation for your service to God, your devotion to God-honoring music, and your commitment to an excellent music ministry. The Larry Carrier Music Hall will be a place our wonderful musicians will use as they prepare to bring glory to God through our music ministry.
