Welcome to the website of the First Presbyterian Church of Morrisonville, a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
To be Presbyterian describes how we organize and govern ourselves. It comes from an ancient Greek word meaning “ruled by elders.” A team of trusted servant leaders (our pastors and elders) leads the church. These leaders work together as peers in directing the life and mission of the church.
To be evangelical is to believe that Jesus is God the Son who became flesh and lived among us and died for us. Through Jesus Christ, the Kingdom of God has been inaugurated, thereby freeing people from the guilt and power of sin through personal faith and repentance. This good news of God’s love needs to be shared (ideally in relationships) with those who are alienated from God. This salvation is found in no one else. As Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father but by Me” (John 14.6).
We are a community of men, women, boys, and girls saved through his Son Jesus Christ. God has a mission for this church and that is to bring the goods news of God’s love and salvation through Jesus Christ to all in this community.
We welcome you to the House of God.
– Pastor Jim Ferrill
The First Presbyterian Church of Morrisonville is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church Presbytery (EPC). As such, our worship and beliefs are based on the infallible word of God contained in the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. The Bible is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation, we affirm the essential beliefs of our faith.
Our services are traditional, but still casual. Each Sunday, we have one service that lasts about an hour. Dispersed throughout are 3 hymns sang out of the hymnal. The rest of the service goes as follows: the call to worship, scripture reading, confession of sin, announcements and birthdays, children’s sermon, offering, prayer of the people and the Lord’s prayers, scripture reading, sermon, and benediction. As members leave, they offer goodbyes by saying “May the peace of Christ be with you.” There is not daycare or a separate service for children. They sit with their parents for the adult service. Dress doesn’t matter, come as you are. Most people wear black pants and polos or blouses, but some also wear jeans. Everyone is welcome!
We’d love to meet you. Stop by for a service, give us a call, or connect with us online.
