  • To All The Mothers and Mother Figures - Happy Mother's Day!

    During this time in May, we want to stop and acknowledge our mothers - those  mothers who are still blessed to be here with us, those mothers who have transitioned but whose powerful legacy still lives on, and to those who may not have biological children but serve as mother-like figures - we thank God for the role of faith-filled, godly mothers who have served and still serve as nurturers, givers of wisdom and as strong prayer warriors within our lives.  What a blessed role to serve as a mother.  May God bless all our mothers today and everyday.  Happy Mother's Day!!

  • A Special Congratulations to Our Own Angela Mosley - Johnson, MD!!

    Mt. Pleasant is proud to recognize our very own Angela Mosley-Johnson who will receive her Doctor of Medicine degree on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at the University of South Alabama (USA).  She will begin her residency at USA Health, specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN).  Both she and her husband Carey are pursuing medical careers, with her husband completing his first year of medical school this year.  Check out the wonderful article featuring Angela and Carey and how they are navigating their medical career journey as a married couple at USA (click here).

    We share in this extremely proud and honorable moment with her mom, Sis. Ungrell Mosley , who has done a wonderful job raising very accomplished and successful twin daughters in both Angela and Andrea (Alexander).  These young ladies have been honor students and recognized scholars in their scholastic pursuits for years and we know that God has so much more in store for them in the years ahead.

  • ATTENTION!!! JUNE 2021: In-Person Church Services to Resume

    Pastor Dinkins has announced that the first Sunday of June -  June 6, 2021 - in-person church services will resume at Mt. Pleasant.  Sanitary cleaning protocol will be deployed throughout the church in preparation for church members and visitors who will be in attendance.  Pastor Dinkins has made it clear that SAFETY first and should there be anything that would raise a flag regarding COVID concerns.

    Please note that key COVID precautions will continue to be taken, including:  social distancing, the wearing of masks, no handshaking or hugs and the accessibility of hand sanitizers.  Several members of the congregation have received their COVID vaccinations and more members are expected to do the same, in the coming days.

    As an option, for those members who would rather not attend in-person services, a conference call number will be made available so that members can participate virtually.

    If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss further, please send an email on this site (located under "Contact Us" on the left side of this homepage) and a member of our administrative team will get back to you.
