Each month, the First Presbyterian Church of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa mails out a newsletter to its members, friends, and those on the mailing list.

More information may be posted closer to the date.
Give Back Day
Give Back Day is an annual event put together by the church's Mission Committee. Instead of a full Sunday Worship Service, members of the congregation are sent out into the community to do pre-determined jobs, such as raking leaves, cleaning gutters, preparing tie-blankets, and other various jobs. Give Back Day typically takes place in the fall, and more information will be provided closer to the day. If you are interested in volunteering for Give Back Day or have any questions, please contact the church office.
