What's Going on with Family Matters?

How satisfying will it be to hear small children and see young families in new children's space at Morningside? How soon until the dream turns into reality? RealityQuite a few steps remain in the process, the biggest: the church makes a final decision- go or no go - sometime in the not-so-distant future. That writ, the next step remains with the construction team. Team E...

Pursuit of Happiness

Many people spend their whole lives in the pursuit of happiness. Some seek happiness by drinking, using drugs and pursing money or relationships that are outside of God's law. They quickly find that these are a temporary fix, not genuine paths of happiness. They might temporarily make you happy, but they won't lead to everlasting joy. True happiness is much more than livin...

Bible Fellowship

Bible Fellowship, what a great name for a fresh run at a time-tested method of outreach and growth! The name speaks volumes to the follower of Jesus, in terms of relationship and practice. Practice Jesus said, "man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4). Followers of Jesus carry an unmistakable hunger for the ...

July 4th

Can you believe we have reached the mid-way point of 2012? It is at this time of year that we annually turn our attention to our next holiday, the July 4th celebration. Many have family traditions that will be observed such as meeting at the beach with family, or simply meeting at the park to enjoy good food, time with family and friends, watermelon, and possibly a round o...

Kids Week. Nursery Duty. Family Matters. Father's Day. Summer Vacation.

At this time of year, children (and grandchildren) are on our minds and all around the house. I had supper last week with a young man (now he's a Major in the Army, but he's always going to be younger than me) who grew up at Morningside. It is inspiring to see "the ones that made it" through the storms and challenges of childhood and young adulthood, and it is encouraging ...

Founding Fathers

With the Fourth of July around the corner, the question can be asked, "Do our leaders today compare with our Founding Fathers?" If the answer is no, it may be because of what we are teaching our children today - or, precisely, what we are not teaching them. Our Founding Fathers believed "religion, morality, and knowledge [were] necessary to good government and the happine...

Family Matters Update

Family Matters helps MBC realize a dream, a big dream that the church saw 23 years ago. Family Matters moves us $1,695,864.45 closer to making the dream a reality ($1,695,864.45 henceforth referred to in this article as $1.7m for the sake of time). $1.7m is less than the stated goal of $2.3m for Family Matters, even in Rabbitown, GA, my hometown. That said, $1.7m stands a...

Instrumentalists and Singers

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with the thankfulness in your hearts to God" (Colossians 3:16). That is worship! Everything in us should bring praise to God. Another way of putting it is "praise is thanksgiving from the inside out." Many of our members can play di...

Urgency

In the gospel of John chapter 9 Jesus shared with his disciples this truth, "While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." In the preceding verse Jesus had announced to His disciples that, "We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work." The phrase, "while it is day" could reference the years of Jesus' earthly...

Family Roots

My family and I have been members of Morningside since 1984. We have seen growth and changes, and we have been blessed to be a part of the three previous stewardship campaigns. The current Family Matters campaign is an opportunity to look at where we are and where we are going. I believe that Morningside's roots are strong and spiritually deep. I believe that the Lord has...
