October, 2022 ... The North Central Area Presbytery was held at Morningside Church on the 14th and 15th with over 60 attending. A very brief definition of Presbytery is
a body of Church elders and ministers, especially an administrative body representing all the local congregations of a district. Plans, goals, issues are reviewed with next steps defined. The gathering included meeting most of Friday followed by a dinner at Morningside and a Worship Service with Communion in the early evening.
September, 2022 ... A group of Morningside's members and guests took a trip to Williamstown, KY to the ARK Encounter. Ark Encounter is a Christian Young Earth creationist theme park. The centerpiece of the park is a large representation of Noah's Ark, based on the Genesis flood narrative contained in the Bible. The Ark is 510' long, 85' wide and 51' high.
October, 2021... A group of Morningside's members and their guests took the Spirit of Jasper train round trip from West Baden/French Lick, IN to Jasper, IN. It was an opportunity to see the beginning of fall's colors in late October. Dinner was served on the train. In addition to the fall colors and dinner, it was an opportunity to ride a beautifully restored train and enjoy time with friends.
Christmas Past ... A Lasting Memory of Helping Others!!!
Christmas Caroling to our Shut-Ins was a wonderful success with 19 carolers from Morningside Church participating. The carolers divided up into small groups of 3 or 4 singers to visit as many shut-ins as possible.
Twenty-five (25) shut-ins were reached...not counting the staff and friends (at nursing homes) or the caregivers and friends (at individual homes) who also joined to listen and even sing along with the carolers.
