New Members for August

Barahona.jpg

Omar and Patricia Barahona

  • Joined: Aug. 4

  • Deacon: Miguel Perlera

  • The Barahona family participates in the Hispanic ministry at MBC.

  • Omar and Patricia have both accepted Christ as their personal Savior. As Patricia said, “I am convinced that (God) sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross to cleanse us from our sins, that His love and mercy are infinite, and that only with His forgiveness I can have eternal life.” Both Omar and Patricia have demonstrated their faith by being baptized.

Brianna+Howell.jpg

Brianna Howell

  • Joined: Aug. 11

  • Deacon: Ben Plumb

  • Attends: Pursue

  • Brianna was raised in Honduras where her parents are missionaries. She remembers praying a salvation prayer when she was four because her mom wanted her to, not because she understood her need for a Savior. When she was eight years old, however, she started doubting salvation and God. Her sister encouraged her to talk to their parents. They answered her questions then explained the plan of salvation to her. Brianna accepted Christ’s work on her behalf and has since seen God work in amazing ways in her life.

Sherry+Barbrow.jpg

Dan and Sherry Barbrow

  • Joined: Aug. 18

  • Deacon: Scott Krystowiak

  • When Dan was in junior high, he asked God’s forgiveness for his sins during a revival meeting and was baptized the following spring in a pond. However, he questioned whether his decision was based on true repentance or emotion for the next few years. He prayed a prayer of genuine repentance in the early 1970s and was baptized again. Sherry came to Christ in the basement of a friend’s house at a child evangelism meeting. The teaching reinforced that of her parents. She saw her need for salvation and accepted Christ’s sacrifice for her sins.

Grandparents Sunday

Grandparents Sunday

Sunday we celebrated our first-ever Grandparents Day with over 1200 in attendance! Pastor Crockett preached from Psalm 145 and challenged us and our guests to praise God’s works to the next generation. He also admonished Morningside’s multi-generational church to create dialogue and discipleship between the generations. 

During our 9:15 and 10:30 services, grandparents were recognized with thankful applause. Teens and children honored grandparents by singing “Make My Life an Alleluia” and “Oh, How He Loves You and Me.”

Grandparents were offered free portraits by Jennifer Davisson Photography in between our services. Those who took advantage of the free portraits will receive an email in approximately two weeks. Thank you to Jennifer Davisson and team for creating memorable photos for our Morningside grandparents and grandchildren! https://jenniferdavisson.photography


Women's Craft Night

Women's Craft Night

An exciting report from Kathy Burget:

We had about 32, a few teens, a few grandmas and everyone in between.

Kimberly brought her neighbor, Jaalah brought a friend, and we had a couple new Morningside members and attendees. Wanda Courtney did a good job teaching us, and we all had a great time. Several ladies brought their own crafts and enjoyed working on them together. I shared for a very brief time Hebrews 10:24-25 that it’s our responsibility to provoke each other to good works, to encourage each other. It’s not about just attending church, it’s about developing relationships with each other and about the importance of fellowship.

Academy of Arts performs Marked for Greatness

Academy of Arts performs Marked for Greatness

Morningside hosts Academy of Arts performing the story of Adoniram Judson Marked For Greatness.jpg

The Academy of Arts traveling drama team will be presenting “Marked for Greatness” on Wednesday, 7/31/19 @ 7 PM @ Morningside. This is a FREE event open to the public.

Marked for Greatness is the story of Adoniram Judson, the first American foreign missionary to Burma. This drama will powerfully portray the beginning of Adoniram's life as he excels in his education, runs from God and tries to reject Him, finally commits to Christ, falls in love and is married, and surrenders to give up everything to serve the Lord in Burma. This 45-50 minute presentation will move audiences to see God’s hand at work and inspire them to answer the call of God in their own lives! It will also include 1 song to highlight the Gospel message of the presentation!

The Academy of Arts has been traveling the nation since 1971 “Making the Bible Come Alive”. Their headquarters, the Logos Theatre, is located in Taylors, South Carolina where they perform professional, family-friendly stage drama’s year-round!

VBS Registration is LIVE! Register your child/children at Morningside.org/vbs

It's a Vacation Bible School like no other!

Kids will race from continent to continent uncovering clues and attempting challenges as they fill their score cards.

They'll also discover that, no matter where we live, what shade of skin we have, or what language we speak, we are all part of the same race—the human race—and all part of the same family from Adam and Eve.

As they examine the events surrounding the tower of Babel, kids will learn that God is calling people from every tribe and nation through his Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. And that he wants us to share this good news in kindness and love with our neighbors nearby and far away.

Join The Incredible Race Sunday through Thursday, June 9-13 from 6:00-8:15pm and experience God's love for every tribe, language, and nation!
