Welcome to Mt. Pisgah

We are a friendly, welcoming group of about 700 (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

Welcome to Mt. Pisgah!

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

“A Stones Throw”

Advent begins Sunday, November 27th. I don't want to miss one part of this special journey towards Christmas - as we wait and prepare our hearts for the Christ Child. Wednesdays are so special with our Jesse Tree meditations by the light of the Christmas Tree and our Holden Evening Prayer. Dinners are 5:15-6:15 pm borr and Worship is 6:30-7:00pm each Wednesday night. Come let us adore Him - Christ our Lord.

Sunday, December 4th - Worship time - Pastor Mike shares a dramatic portrayal of David. Also, don't miss the Cantamos Christmas concert at 4:00 pm at Mt. Pisgah, with a spaghetti dinner to follow.

Wednesday, December 7th and 14th - These are special evenings of worship from 6:30 - 7:00 pm, and don't forget the Wednesday dinners at 5:15-6:15pm (Confirmation parents meeting at 7:00 following worship Wednesday, December 7th in the Upper Room).

In His gracious grip,


Pastor Mike

"Listen to the Angels song, all you who have a troubled heart! I bring you good tidings of great joy!" Jesus did not come to condemn you. If you wanted to define Christ rightly, then pay heed to how the Angels define Him namely, a great joy!" Martin Luther
