We are excited to gather again as the Body of Christ, for in-person services at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church! Below is a brief explanation of what our worship services will look like, what policies/procedures will be in place to ensure the safety of you and your family and how seats can be reserved for one of our services.
We will begin live services at 10 am on Sundays in the Main Sanctuary, adhering to social distancing guidelines. Each seat is marked by blue painter’s tape to ensure proper social distancing. Please sit only in these locations.
Our Sanctuary has limited seating (35) family groups. We are requiring reservations in order to provide a safe worship experience, adhering to social distancing guidelines. See below to register now.
Our first in-person gathering will be on September 20th at 10 am. This will be the first service when we focus on the technical issues of livestreaming and face the unforeseen challenges of handling larger groups of people.
KIDS & STUDENTS PROGRAMMING
All children and students MUST register to attend, which can be done in the forms above.
During the worship service, there will be no Children’s Time at the Chancel steps. Rising Stars Reopens TBD
If you are a high-risk individual, or you feel more comfortable at home, we will continue to stream our services online HERE. We are all working to ensure the highest quality for our on-line community.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Make sure to check this page weekly, as our guidelines and policies will be changing in coordination with CDC updates and updated policies from the Governor’s office.

No. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19 (which are fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste/smell or sore throat) please DO NOT come to church and risk the safety of others. Stay home, feel better and join us online!

All parking will be in the Upper and Lower parking lots. The New Property parking lot will be closed at this time.
