Who We Are

Morse Covenant Church was the vision of a group of friends and fellow believers inspired by a verse found during a bible study in 2004:

This is what the LORD says:

“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls.”

That verse was the inspiration for the common thought and mission that became Morse Covenant Church. Johnson County, with its expansive growth and hectic pace, was in need of a simpler place of rest for weary souls. So the idea was born for a church community built by committed Christians, at the crossroads of ancient paths and founded on the good way.

With God’s perfect timing, the beautiful, historic Morse Church c. 1884 became available and was purchased by the new congregation who restored and returned it to its sacred purpose as a place of worship and community fellowship.

So with a commitment to the ancient paths and historic churches before us, but with a mission and heart to serve each other and our community today, we gather together to worship, study and grow in the word of God. Our Sunday Worship Service includes Communion for all who welcome Jesus into their hearts, both traditional hymns and contemporary music to worship and praise, and messages which are always enlightening.

Along the way we have made an amazing discovery – that a church with the visions, values and practices of the ancient/modern church can be quite effective at reaching people in the community with the message of hope and faith in the Gospel.

We’d love to have you visit and join us!
