Join us for lunch on Sunday August 3rd in Fellowship Hall immediately following worship to say good-bye to Marilyn Schenenberger. Our energetic, joyous Director of Music and Organist is retiring and moving to VA. There is no better way to say good-bye than with a church luncheon. The barbecue, corn bread and drinks will be provided. We are asking that attendees bring a salad or pie (Marilyn’s favorite dessert) to share. We will be giving a gift to Marilyn, so if you would like to contribute, please send a check to the church office, written to MPC, marked on the memo line For Marilyn’s gift.
But more importantly, you are invited to write her a personal note of what she has meant to you and/or MPC. We will have a large basket at the luncheon to collect those. Please let us know you are coming by signing up in the communication center or RSVP to the church office.
Welcome to Ken Ross

Pastor Ross is an active member of presbytery and currently serves as the moderator of the Commission on Preparation and Credentials. He is an eager theologian and church historian and specializes in the history, theology, and polity of the PC(USA).

Message from the Pastor
Thanks for visiting our web site. We are grateful for the opportunity to share with you some of what God is doing in and through the Morrisville Presbyterian Church.
As a Presbyterian Church within the Reformed Tradition of the Christian faith, we believe our highest purpose in life is “to love God and enjoy God forever”—starting here and now—in all that we do and with all that we are and have. A vibrant and creative congregation, MPC is always busy in many ways, all of which are for the glory of God.
The most important thing happening at MPC, we believe, is that the Spirit of God is at work in each of us, equipping all of us to live out our life-long vocation, which the Lord Jesus Christ summarized:
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Mark 12:30-31
In that spirit, we welcome you, and invite you to become part of what God is doing in and through this community of faith we affectionately call MPC.
