  • In Memoriam: Our First Lady Janice W. Dinkins

    Our dearest First Lady, Mrs. Janice W. Dinkins, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 6, 2020.  She served faithfully the Mt. Pleasant Church family and was an ever present support system for our Youth Ministry and Ladies' Fellowship and a committed and highly supportive participant in our Food Pantry Ministry.  She was never shy about her love and devotion towards her husband of nearly 35 years,  Pastor Rev. Ed Dinkins, whom she referred to as the love of her life and best friend.  To those of us who knew her best, she often shared words of edification and encouragement, served as a prayer warrior for those of us who needed intercessory prayer, always took time to listen to those of us who needed an ear, had a deep and caring spirit for the youth of Mt. Pleasant, and often expressed her appreciation and endearing love for her church family.  While we certainly miss her presence today and in the days to come, we celebrate her life and legacy that will continue to live on in our hearts, knowing that one day, we will all be reunited with her in glory forever.

    The celebration of life for Mrs. Janice Dinkins will be held at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at  11AM.  Poole Funeral Home is presiding - for more information on Mrs. Dinkins' service or if you wish to leave comments for the Dinkins-Whorley family, click here.  

    Visitation will be held from 1PM to 7PM on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.  

    NOTE:  Repast will be held at the Holiday Inn 119 in Pelham, AL.

  • Calling All Prayer Warriors!!

    As a church family, let us remain diligent in frequent prayer, lifting up our brothers and sisters who are facing bereavement, serious illness, job loss, financial struggles, caretaking challenges, etc.  We are calling upon our church family to be in prayer for each other, for healing, for strength, for breakthrough, for increased faith, for endurance during trials, for a renewed spirit of love in our daily dealings.  By being on one accord, we can rely on God's goodness, His faithfulness, His guidance, His timing to bring us through victoriously, any thing that we face.  We thank GOD for answering our prayers right now, In Jesus' Name.
