Welcome to Our Church

At the Morningside Church of Christ, we do not claim to have all the answers or be able to provide everything your soul is longing for. But we are followers of the One who does claim to be “The Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6). Jesus does not claim to offer you an easy life. But He does say that when your life is lived in Him and through Him that it will be the most fulfilling life possible.

The Narrow Road Code Part One

He has told you, O man,what is good;⦁ We have not been left isolated⦁ Wondering what God wants of us:⦁ We have not been left without witness:⦁ We have not been left without witness:⦁ Creation⦁ The Bible⦁ Jesus⦁ The ChurchAnd what does the Lord require of you Micah 6:8 8 He has told you, O man, what is good;And what does the Lord require of youBut to do justice, to love [a]kindness,And to walk [b]humbly with your God?

How Privileged We Are To Serve.

To serve God, to serve his church, being able to serve in any capacity.When it comes to christianity we are not called to be spectators. Ephesians 2:10 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

New Year Resolutions

What is our resolve?What is your resolve?What motivates you serve?In the church what is your resolve that motivates you to do something for the kingdom? 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 2 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a] 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great…

Our Father in heaven

Pray, then, in this way:“ Jesus first and foremost directs our minds to our divine Father’s dwelling place. He who made everything without help or advice from anyone on this planet on which we walk or, for that matter, anyone within the confines of the unbelievably vast night sky above us. One marvels at the efforts made by man to travel beyond our atmosphere, but we are humbled by how minuscule a distance it is when measured against the staggering…

“Don’t kid yourself!”

Whichever way you cut it, the reasons for touching that fruit in the garden of Eden had ‘Lie’ written all over it!The lines were crossed one by one. Man went from seeing, to wanting, to taking, and then to eating with relative ease. The devil really didn’t have to work that hard. Once he had gotten them past the first lingering look, the dominos fell in quick succession.Job had it right. Despite his misery, he was not going to self-medicate…

“Living in Hope.”

Four old gentlemen were sitting on a bench at the old folk’s home, when a rather attractive lady stopped nearby them. The first man asked, “Where you headed?” She said, “I have arrived. This is my new home.” The second man asked, “Where are you from?” She said, “I need to be upfront; I have just spent 25 years in prison.” The third man asked, “What were you in for?” She said, “I murdered my husband.” The fourth man said…

“Having Doubts…?”

One thing in the church is for certain, we are more comfortable with doubt than Jesus is. Jesus sees doubt as faithlessness, we see it as a natural reaction to things beyond our immediate control.We see doubt as something to be processed and slowly replaced by faith. Jesus sees doubt as the enemy of faith. He rebuked Peter for sinking in the waves because he doubted who Jesus was. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction…

Bulletin – 31 January 2021

Teachable…? There’s an old story of a young man seeking the wisdom of the ages. He had heard of an old wiseman who lived in the remotest part of the mountains. One famed to have all the answers to all of life’s questions. The young man searched for months and finally came upon him in a small hut. On arrival the young man was warmly welcomed and invited to sit down for tea. The young man talked incessantly and the…

In the Light of the Cross Prayer – Learning how! I was in a little church in Mississippi in 1999 and one of the teenage boys did the “Opening Prayer.” I had met him earlier and had sat in Bible class with him and all the other men. The congregation preferred the King James Version, so everyone sat armed with their KJVs. The men took turns reading from the Bible, but when it came to this young man, he struggled.…

Bulletin – 3 January 2021

In the Light of the Cross Faith comes by Hearing In my youth I worked with a tradesman who used to dismiss my preaching about ‘the one true church’ as ‘the idealism of the naïve.’ He would counter, “God has different kinds of fellowships for different kinds of people. If you like your worship loud, or soft, or liberal, or tight-laced, rich or poor, God has a church for you.” Of course, he didn’t believe his own words, this was…
