Mount Pleasant,

As we head toward the Holidays and bring another year to a close, I want to take this time to reflect on a few things. 2017 has been a pretty good year for Mount Pleasant spiritually. We continue to be a church that is focused on Ministry and we did much Ministry throughout this year. You all have heeded the words of Jesus when He said, “as much as you have done it unto the least of these you have done it to me.”  From the homeless to those in prison to the Branch of Love Families to those in Texas, Florida, Dominica, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands to those in Haiti; Mount Pleasant has served God faithfully by serving others. Whether it has been Home Mission or Foreign Mission you have been faithful in your service and for that I say thank you.

We continue to not only bless those outside the church but also are able to bless those within our walls. The love that you show those Brothers and Sisters in need is commendable and appreciated. Mount Pleasant is not perfect but it is loving, kind and does all that it can do to show the “love of Christ”.

I am grateful for the vision that God has given our church. Our theme, #WEBUILDHERE, has caught on and I want us to continue to remember it. We want to help people grow to be the men and women that God is looking for. Let us always remember to “Build Up” and not “Tear Down”. God has some great blessings in store for this church as we continue to “Build the Kingdom of God, One Soul at a Time”. I am excited about what He is going to do in the life of Mount Pleasant. 

As we prepare to celebrate the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays remember those who are not filled with cheer and thanksgiving during this time. Maybe it is an encouraging word. Maybe it is just a quick prayer. Maybe it is an invite to dinner to someone who has no family. Whatever you do, just remember if not for the grace of God that could be you who is hungry, alone and has nowhere to go.

May God bless you and keep you. May His countenance shine upon you.


Be blessed,
