Visiting Tips

What time are services on Sunday morning?

We have three traditional worship services in the Sanctuary, and one alternative style worship service on Sunday mornings. Click here to view our worship service schedule.

Do you have Contemporary Worship at MPPC? What is The Net?

The Net is a contemporary worship service held in the Fellowship Hall, also about an hour in length. In this service, a band consisting of church members play guitar, drums, saxophones and sometimes even the flute! You might see an artist painting in this service during the Lent months (typically February and March). Music ranges from age old hymns to new tunes, or even psalms. There often is no “order of service” printed for you in The Net, but the service follows a similar path of the regular service.

What does worship look like in the Sanctuary at MPPC?

In the Sanctuary, worship services are traditional. We have great music led by our choirs and the organ, often accompanied with brass ensembles or soloists. Services will be around one hour in length. Children are welcome and encouraged in worship, especially during our Children’s Sermon. We also have a nursery available for those who need it.

Do you allow children in the main Sanctuary during worship services?

Bring your children — all ages are welcome — and join us for worship. If you prefer, you may entrust your young children (birth to 4 years) to our nursery caregivers who have undergone child protection training and background checks.

When I arrive where should I park?

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.

I see your Sunday service times, but how far in advance should I arrive to get my children where they need to be etc.?

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.

I am not Presbyterian, do I need to be to visit the church?

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.

I have never been to your church, how should I dress?

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 at 11:15 am in the Fellowship Hall, which you might find yourself in an environment with more casual attire. We are a relaxed environment that is made up of jeans and a dress shirt to dress jackets and suits.

Can I have communion at your church?

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”.
