Deacon's page


“It is the duty of deacons, first of all, to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith. They shall assume such other duties as may be delegated to them from time to time by the session.”

Our Mission and Duty

We the Deacons of Mount Pleasant Church, known to be of the spirit and wisdom, and in full faith of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, will serve whole heatedly in the positions unto which we have been called.
