You are most welcome to join us in worship every Sunday at 10:30 am! We are a casual, come as you are church in the Morgan Valley. There are no dress codes. We’ll like you just the way you are.
We regret that our church is not easily handicap accessible due to its age and split level design. We will try to accommodate member needs as best we can.
At MVCC we embrace a hybrid of traditional and contemporary Christian worship styles in our worship music. Services last about one hour immediately followed by fellowship with coffee and treats for all.
The first Sunday of the month we offer communion to anyone who wishes to receive it. There are no pre-requisites for receiving communion. All are welcome at our table.
Morgan Valley Christian Church (MVCC) began in 1983 based on the vision of Rev. Harley D. Hunt formerly of Clearfield Community Church to provide a community church to the residents of Morgan County so that people of any Christian faith background could gather and worship.
American Baptists always have maintained the need for autonomous congregations, responsible for articulating their own doctrine, style of worship and mission. We follow this tradition at MVCC.
We continue that community vision as a welcoming and affirming church that is a member of the Evergreen Association of American Baptists. As a community church, we are open members from all faith backgrounds, races, gender identities, and ages.
Fred Smullin is a lay pastor at Morgan Valley Christian Church and is licensed by the church body. Fred has been attending MVCC since 1994 and became lay pastor in 2018 after a four year transition from Fran Holm who retired from being lay pastor for 25 years.
Fred is bi-vocational and began feeling a calling to ministry in 2009 and has gradually progressed in his understanding and ministry work at MVCC. Fred volunteered with ministry teams providing retreats for eight years before transitioning to MVCC’s pastor.
Fred and his wife Jenny now live in Salt Lake City, Utah but still commute to MVCC each Sunday to share God’s message for those who attend.
