Mount Pleasant Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA), located at the corner of White Oak and Mount Pleasant Roads, Paradise in the northern tip of Bart Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, was begun as a mission in 1898 in a former United Brethren meetinghouse by the Sunday School Mission, under the leadership of B. F. Book and Christian M. Neff. A congregation emerged, which in 1956 numbered 78 with Amos W. Weaver and C. Marvin Eshleman as ministers and G. Parke Book as bishop. A Christian day school for the community adjoined the meetinghouse. Mount Pleasant is a member of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference.
