What and Who We Are
If you are here for the first or the hundredth time, we want you to feel at home and know you belong. If you are just passing through, we hope our worship provides you with nourishment for your soul and continuing journey.
Being a first time guest at a church can, at times, be nerve-racking and intimidating. We want your first time visit to be stress free and for you to leave feeling like a welcomed part of our faith community.
Here's a brief snapshot of what you can expect during a Mt Pleasant service:
People dressed like they are anywhere else. We want you to be at ease and encourage you to wear what is most comfortable for you.
Biblical and theologically based music.
Bible-based teaching with life application.
A family of genuine and authentic people who love God and others.
