Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
Thank you for your support of missions! Our Lottie Moon total at present is 7,002.50!!! PRAISE THE LORD!

Thank You
We just want to thank you and say how much we appreciate your expression of love and kindness in the loss of our mother and grandmother, Eunice Davenport, with visits, cards, prayers, phone calls, food and flowers. We feel so blessed to be a part of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.-Love, Gary & Carolyn Sears, Brittany, Alan, Mattie & Wesley Walker

From Your Church Staff
The phrase “thank you” seems inadequate to express the deep gratitude we feel for the generous expression of love you, our church family, gave to us at Christmas. We consider it a privilege to be on staff together serving the Lord by serving you with the talents and abilities God has granted us. We look forward to seeing and experiencing all that God chooses to accomplish in the future in and through the members of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.

Sharing our Faith: as simple as 1-2-3!
The “3 CIRCLES” evangelism strategy can be a great tool in your spiritual toolbox. Please begin praying about your involvement in this simply, 6-week training strategy for clearly, confidently, and concisely helping someone understand the gospel message. More information to come!

Gerald Hildabrand

Christian sympathy is shared among our church family, and extended to the entire Lewisburg and Logan County community, as we mark the passing of our dear brother in Christ, Gerald Hildabrand. We share in the experience of deep personal sorrow, yet rejoice in his experience of seeing Jesus face to face, and being reunited with family and friends.
