 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 August 2017


At a band practice something was not working properly and instructions were given to, “Be sure to check the power source!” A simple replacement of a battery took care of everything.

As we come to the close of the summer, it is a good time for us to check our personal power source and supply. In our spiritual lives, for us to GROW in faith, to KNOW Christ and to GO in service, we need to stay connected to the Power of direction and inspiration that only He can give us.
This summer was so inspiring with our Kids in Christ camp, VBS, Confirmation camp and work camps. It is always amazing to watch our young people connect with each other and with God. Each participant experienced a personal renewal which gave them power for the moment and a memory for a lifetime. I am so grateful for such great young people and for a congregation that understands so well the importance of those kinds of memory making - life changing opportunities to “plug in.“
It also got me to thinking of all the opportunities we have here at Mt. Pisgah to connect with our Power Source. Don't we, like the people of God in the wilderness, need to be fed everyday by the Bread from Heaven? We cannot count on last year or even yesterday's supply. I cannot count on my past connectedness to God to give me nourishment and power for the new day. Each day provides a new and fresh opportunity to grow by being connected to our Power source in Jesus Christ.
That is a long way for a preacher to say, “PLUG IN!” As we soon begin new ministries together, take advantage of these great opportunities for worship, bible study and Sunday school. We certainly will be blessed as we give Him daily opportunity to speak to us through His word and prayer.
See you Sunday!
Connected to His gracious grip,
Pastor Mike
