  • In Recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on MLK Day

    In recognition of MLK day, we want to take a moment to remember that not only did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spearhead a period of time in our history that would facilitate the historic Civil Rights movement, he was a scholar, preacher and pastor who stood for love.  Two of his most famous quotes reinforce this: 1) "I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear."  2) Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend".  (**See the Links page for a special MLK Day link**).  Let us remain grateful, not only in having an attitude of gratitude for all that God has done to bring us from pre-Civil Rights to where we are today, but more importantly, lets remember to love one another.  1 Corinthians 13:13 - "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."

  • Do You Have "2020" Vision? If not, Ask God to Show You!

    Only What We Do For Christ Will Last!  Before you move too far into January pursuing one of the most common of resolutions that most people find themselves pursuing (like weight loss, saving money, taking on a new hobby, downsizing, going to school, etc), make sure you pray and ask God what is your New Year/New Decade 2020 Vision for serving and glorifying Him!  No plans should be made without seeking God's guidance.  When our spiritual priorities are on point, everything else in our lives will fall into their proper place!  For more on this, check out the Info Center!

    "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" - Matthew 6:33

  • Special Prayer Request for Mt. Pleasant Church Family

    During these holidays, it is important for us to keep our church family lifted up in prayer.  Several of our church members 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 successfully, any thing that we face.  We thank GOD for answering our prayers right now, In Jesus' Name.
