History

“We stand tall because we stand on the backs of the ones who came before us.”  
                                                           ~ Mamie Parks Williams, Church Historian

Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church was founded by former black slaves from Camden, S.C., after the Civil War in 1867.  The founders bought the land for $160 from a man who lived in New York.  The church was then built by black carpenters and artisans.  Thirty-five Pastors have served in leadership, since its establishment in 1867.  Currently, the church is under the direction of Rev. Dr. Geraldine W. McClellan.

Our Mission

“Go into all the world and make disciples.”

We are commanded in the gospels to build bridges, make disciples, love God, love our neighbors, and to love one another.   

Words to Remember

“God makes us brave when we’re afraid, makes us strong when we are weak, but most of all, he teaches us to hold on to him when things keep falling.”

1867
