Worship & Music


Morningside has a strong tradition of music in worship. In addition to congregational singing, our music includes special selections presented by our Sanctuary Choir, instrumentalists, children, youth, as well as ensembles and soloists of all ages.




Morningside really loves kids! We have modern facilities and loving volunteers who teach children Biblical truths that will last a lifetime. Sunday Bible Study, Kids Worship, and Kid Zone all focus on teaching children to love God's Word. 



The Youth Ministry at Morningside exists to encourage our 6-12 grade students to seek Jesus Christ as Lord, serve as we are called by scripture, and share the love of Christ with others. Thrive Bible Study is Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:30. Other upcoming youth events can be found in The Messenger in the Events tab on Morningside website. If you have any questions or want more information on our youth ministry contact Connor @




Adults have opportunities to seek Jesus through Bible study in small groups after the Sunday morning service. On Wednesday Nights, we offer discipleship classes that help Christians live for Christ and grow in their faith. On Wednesday nights, we have an online prayer meeting and Bible study that focuses on Christian basics. Follow us on FaceBook, YouTube or

Boy Scouts Ministry

Cub Scout Pack 11 and Boy Scout Troop 11 meet most Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. Our Cub Scouts (Age 5-10) meet upstairs in the Morningside education wing, while our Boy Scouts (11-17) meet at the Scout Hut. Our Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs strive to instill in our young men the ability to make ethical and moral decisions throughout life by using Christian moral values. These values are reflected in the Scout Oath and Law.




The mission of the Morningside Bicycle Ministry is to serve our Lord, Jesus Christ, by sharing his love in providing refurbished bicycles to children, teens, and adults in the Spartanburg community. We are open every Tuesday from 8:00-12:00. If you would like to request a refurbished bicycle or donate a used bicycle to our ministry, please call the church office between 8:30-4:30 Monday through Thursday or contact one of our Bicycle Team members. For more information check out our Facebook group.

Weekday Pre-School


Mside Weekday Preschool strives to meet the spiritual, mental, social, emotional, and physical needs of young children by providing a Christian foundation and an emotional curriculum presented by a loving ministry to families within the church family as well as an outreach to families in the community.


The Hope Within


Morningside now has a team of volunteers that helps elderly and homebound members who would like to have assistance of various types. If you need someone to
take you to an appointment or to pick up groceries or medicine, etc., please contact Jayne Belmont in the Church Office. We would love to add members to this ministry team. If interested in becoming a part of this group, you may contact Jayne.
