  • COVID-19 Resources and Tips Now Added to the Info Center!

  • ATTENTION: Food Pantry Process Has Been Modified

    In light of these very uncertain times during this pandemic, to ensure the safety of everyone and the food supply, clients will NOT be allowed in the church facility.  Pre-packaged items will be brought to a client's car as they sign in for pickup. 

    We thank you in advance for working with us to adhere to these precautions.  

  • Mt. Pleasant Members - Note the New Process for Submitting Tithes

    In the interim, for those members who wish to submit their tithes and offerings, two options you may choose from:

    1) Mail your tithes and offerings to the church's P.O. Box (address found on the left upper side of the home page)

    2) Pay online - "Donate Online" link is found on the left side of website home page

    For those of you would prefer to submit directly during church service, hold on to them in the interim until church services are able to reconvene.



    In light of the recent developments regarding crowd size restrictions due to the Coronavirus, church services have been cancelled.  We will continue to monitor the news and guidance provided by the respective governing authorities and as more information becomes available, we will update our church family and website accordingly. 

    Please continue to stay at home whenever possible, continue to adhere to the recommended hygiene standards at all times and remember to stay prayed up and worded up - our God is still in complete control.

    In spite of the current pandemic that has hit the world, we thank God that God is in full control in these stressful and anxious times.  He has given us His word to help us so that while we are taking the necessary health precautions,  In Him, we can find safety, hope and peace - a peace that passes all understanding because that peace is rooted in Christ Jesus.

  • Navigating the Coronavirus Pandemic With Prayer and God's Word

    The only thing we know right now is that we are indeed living in uncertain times: Watching the news and listening to the radio, the number of stories regarding the Coronavirus - the number of new cases of infection, businesses closing, job layoffs, stock market dropping, social distancing, the list goes on.

    God is using this time to get our attention - to convict our spirits to pray, to repent, to reconnect, to step up and strengthen our relationship with Him.  Click here for a prayer guide to use in lifting up our families, communities, state, nation and the world at large during these times.

  • 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.
