  • Mt. Pleasant to Be Featured in Helena's History Preservation Project!

    The city of Helena is launching a History Preservation project focused on highlighting historic African American churches in the city and their  overall role in Helena's transformation over the years.  A number of churches have played a critical part in Helena's growth and progress - this project is intended to bring to light those churches within the African American community that never received proper recognition of their contribution to the city or the chance for their stories to be told.  We are excited about the selection of Mt. Pleasant to participate within this project.  Stay tuned to learn more in the coming weeks!

  • Gone but Not Forgotten: Betty Frazier - Homegoing: May 20, 2017

    Mt. Pleasant recently lost one of its beloved members:  Sister Bettie Frazier.  Sis. Frazier went home to be with the Lord on May 20, 2017.  Pastor Dinkins officiated a graveside service for family, friends, church family and others to pay their respects.  Sis. Frazier was a wonderful member of Mt. Pleasant, touching so many with her smile and laughter, her strong faith in Christ, her constant encouragement and wisdom and her jazzy fashion style.  On behalf of Mt. Pleasant, we extend our deepest condolences to the Frazier family.   She will certainly be missed but never forgotten.
