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 blessed this church, His church, over and over. I was reading about the early church's problems grafting the new believers (Gentile Christians)into the old church (Jewish Christians) in Romans 11: 16 - "If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches." I believe that we are about to see the branches bear fruit as we all reach out to others who need a church home. I pray that our roots remain holy so that our branches and our future will be blessed.
