I'm New!

We hope your first visit to our campus will lead to many more and to a deeper journey responding to God’s call upon your life. We start with the conviction that each person is uniquely and beautifully created in God’s own image and is surrounded by His love.

 

Worship With Us

We offer a variety of services on Sundays as well as faith formation opportunities throughout the week! We also host a lot of fun fellowship based events like our Annual Oyster Roast in the winter, a Fall Festival for families and children, free concerts from bands through the Village Concert Series and much more. A typical Sunday at MPPC might look like this: 

9 AM - The Net

On Sundays at 9 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall, we offer a service that features our alternative worship band – The Net. This is our version of a “contemporary” worship service, though it might look different from what most folks have come to expect. The comfortable chairs and casual atmosphere are enjoyed by all ages and seem to work especially well with young families. Sing songs led by a talented band of people from within MPPC. You’ll hear the same Scripture and sermon as our 11 a.m. service.

The eclectic music is made up of modern popular Christian music, classic hymns and songs from other parts of the world. We are creative in worship without leaving anything out or watering it down. Most of all we are people who just enjoy spending time worshiping God together in the midst of our hectic lives.

10 AM - Education Hour

At 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings, we have an education hour for children, youth and adults where various classes and groups meet. These classes are always growing and changing depending on the needs of our congregation and the liturgical calendar. You can find the most up to date information on Sunday morning classes for all ages in the weekly eNewsletter, or by visiting our different Christian Education pages at mppc.net/christian-education.  

However, we have other opportunities for you and your family to grow faith 24/7! We offer education opportunities throughout the week because we believe that faith formation shouldn’t be limited to Sundays only.

Feel free to contact Dan Wiard, our Christian Education Director, and he can point you in the right direction!

11 AM - Sanctuary Service & Live Stream

In the Sanctuary at 11 a.m. worship services are traditional. We have great music led by our choirs and the organ, often accompanied with brass ensembles or soloists. Services are around one hour in length and you can worship from the pews or from the comfort of your couch with our live stream option! 

Children are welcome and encouraged in worship, especially during our Children’s Sermon. We also have a nursery available for those who need it.

If you are interested in live streaming the service, we have a variety of platforms you can join in on! Head over to our watch live page or our Youtube. For an even more interactive experience, join us on Facebook where many participate in worship using the chat feature!

Bring your children — all ages are welcome — and join us for worship. If you prefer, you may entrust your young children to our nursery caregivers who have undergone child protection training and background checks.

If it is your first time visiting Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church, you should try to come approximately 30 minutes before the actual service starts. This will give you plenty of time to find everywhere you need to go and get affiliated with our campus.

Absolutely not. In fact many of our current church members were not Presbyterian when they first visited. We welcome everyone to come enjoy our church.

There are several parking areas around the Church. The most heavily used areas are any of the gravel parking lot areas around the church facility. On Sunday, you may also park at Moultrie Middle School, Stubbs Muldrow & Herin, C3 Investments and RB’s. Please do not block driveways, park on lawns or double-park near the church.

As a traditional church, you will find that our congregants and visitors wear business casual as opposed to jeans in the Sanctuary. However, please don’t feel like you must dress like this for worship. MPPC also has a contemporary worship service – The Net, which you might find a more casual environment with a wide variety of attire including jeans, shorts, dresses and slacks. In all of our services, our focus is the worship of God, not what anyone is wearing.

About once a month, MPPC observes the Lord’s Supper as we remember the sacrifice of Christ and feed ourselves for the journey of faith. As Presbyterians, we invite all those who trust in God to eat at the Lord’s Table. It is neither a Presbyterian table or MPPC’s table. We often observe communion seated, where your neighbor offers the “Body of Christ broken for you” and the “Blood of Christ shed for you”.

We offered Christian education opportunities all throughout the week – we believe that faith formation shouldn’t be limited to Sundays only.

At the moment, we have a 10 a.m. education hour on Sunday mornings for children, youth and adults where various classes and groups meet. However, we have other opportunities for you and your family to grow faith 24/7!
