 Welcome to Mt. Pisgah! 


We are a friendly, welcoming group of about 800 (and growing!) people who gather regularly to worship God and to help build God's kingdom on earth.



 A Message from Council President, Margo Mosley

Extending the peace is another way of acknowledging the blessings God has given us. We in turn seek to share those blessings with each other in worship, in fellowship and in service. Sort of a ripple effect!

Our beloved Pastor Mike opens every monthly Pisgazette with a personal message, “A Stone’s Throw.”  The image of a stone cast upon water is telling.  There’s a ripple effect created when we acknowledge God’s many blessings.  That ripple effect is an ongoing experience here through the community Food Pantry, Senior Center, scout groups, AA, youth work camps, retreats, weekly Bible study, Sunday worship and more. 

Come and see!  We look forward to sharing God’s peace with you and we invite you to join us in creating an even greater ripple effect.

Peace be with you!

Margo Mosley


 A Stone's Throw

Written by Pastor Mike Stone for June 2017

I hope you get as much of a chuckle out of that cartoon as I do. Because Lutherans don't typically sit in the front row.  With the summer and a change of pace I hope that we can all "sit in the back," long enough to smell the roses, count our blessings and evaluate our own stewardship of life  We are blessed with marvelous  front row leaders involved in so many action teams, Church Council, as well as support committees. Not all of us can sit in the front row though, and the back row, behind the scenes leaders are needed just as much as anyone. All of us have a seat which only we can uniquely fill. Our absence is noticed, whether in bible study, Sunday School, worship or whatever function it might be.

In confirmation, we were discussing the  theological and biological fact that of the billions of humans who have roamed this planet no one has been or will be just like you! So this summer as you prayerfully consider your involvement in the Church, realize that the Body of Christ is not complete without you! Whether you are in front speaking or sitting in the back row your presence changes everything. Most of all thanks for sharing the unique and special gift of YOU! We are always the richer for it.                                                             

In His gracious grip

Pastor Mike
