North Ridge Church of Christ, located in Mt. Pleasant, TX, is a congregation of around 300 members. We are located in Northeast Texas with Arkansas and Oklahoma very nearby. It is a beautiful and unique part of America. With an official population of 15,000, the town of Mt. Pleasant serves as a hub for about 75,000, providing us with a small-town feel and some larger-town amenities.
