Our Approach to COVID-19

The COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation that has been making an impact on our world and our community. Right now, things are changing day to day. As a church, we will do our best to honor and care for you, and to keep you informed of changes to our ministries and events as they occur.

Re-entry Team Update 5/20/20

Tap here to watch an update from Pastor John. We have set a target date for in-person gatherings to begin on Sunday, July 19th at 10:30 am. The re-entry team felt this was a good date that allowed us to see how the health of our community stood up to the state re-opening on July 4th, while also not delaying the gathering for corporate worship too long. We will be communicating more information in the weeks to come. The team would like to thank all 64 participants in the survey. These results were extremely helpful in basing our approach to gathering in-person.

Our church facility has already been deep cleaned and information signs will be in place to give guidance as you enter the facility. We are hoping for each of our church family members to think carefully and thoughtfully about your own personal health care and take every precaution necessary to avoid compromising your own well-being as well as others around you.

We look forward to seeing each one of you. In the mean time, please continue to enjoy the online offerings of our church throughout the week and stay healthy and prayed up! The Re-entry team will continue to meet; their next scheduled meeting will be on June 3rd at 6:30 p.m.

Re-entry Team Update 5/6/20

We are encouraged and hopeful after hearing Governor Holcomb’s plan for reopening the state of Indiana! On May 3rd,the Ministry Board formed a team to begin planning our return to in-person worship services at Mt Pleasant. Details will be shared as soon as a date and plan is established. One thing is for sure, we can’t wait to be back together on Mann Road! In the meantime, we encourage you to continue meeting with us for At-Home Worship Sundays online.

In-Person Worship Survey

Mt Pleasant Re-entry team is meeting and we’ve got some great and thorough plans in the making for getting everyone back into the worship center and ministry facility as safe and protected as we possibly can. We could use your help in setting timelines and at a pace that works for the majority of our church family. Below is a survey that will help us take the next steps to move forward.

Ministry Updates

Worship Service

We will not gather for worship services at Mt. Pleasant. However, we invite you to join us by gathering in your homes to watch a recorded time of prayer, worship, and teaching from your Mt Pleasant Worship Team and Pastor John on Facebook and YouTube.

We are excited and thankful for this opportunity to gather together and worship in our homes. We encourage you to gather as a family. This is a unique opportunity to remember that it’s not a building or service that makes us the Church but that we ourselves make up the Body of Christ and church can happen anywhere.

Waypoint on Wednesdays

ALL studies, groups, classes, or gatherings that meet at the church are suspended until further notice. This includes adults, youth, and children. Our teams are working hard to create content and get that out to our parents to continue engaging our children and students in the weeks ahead. If you would like to receive a weekly email with content for continuing your child’s spiritual development, please let us know office@mpbc-indy.org

Care Ministry

Food Pantry – As long as resources are available, our food pantry will remain open (the clothing bank is closed). Patrons are asked to use the circle drive at Door 2 and remain in their cars. Hours of operations: 2nd Tuesday 11-12:30, 4th Tuesday 4-5:30.

Elderly & High Risk – If you fall into a category of high risk as it pertains to COVID-19, we want to care for you. Do you need someone to pick up supplies or a prescription, let us know at office@mpbc-indy.org
