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, Donovan Douglas

Welcome to Mt. Pisgah Lutheran Church!  We extend a warm and unconditional welcome to all people to come and worship with us.  We recognize that we are all sinners in need of God’s Mercy and Grace, and that is what you will find here.  We offer a casual worship environment where you can dress in your Sunday best, or come as you are. 

We offer a variety of exciting programs at Mt. Pisgah.  Our youth program is active with frequent events like Kids in Christ on Wednesday nights, Teens in Encounter Christ (TEC) retreats and mission trips.   For adults we offer multiple Bible study programs and many opportunities for fellowship.

We have just completed the construction phase of our most recent building campaign and are excited to share our new expanded worship space and fellowship hall, and the new Toni Burris Pavilion.  

Worship services are each Sunday at 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM with Sunday School at 9:15 AM.  We invite you to join us this Sunday!

In his service,
Donovan Douglas


 A Stone's Throw

Written by Pastor Mike Stone February 2016


“A Stones Throw”

Hopefully you are receiving this before January 31st Sunday worship. If so thanks for being flexible last weekend with our snow days! We must have needed to slow down. I can't wait to see everyone this Sunday as our Youth share with us about their Gatlinburg experience in worship and video.

On Wednesday February 10th we began the season of Lent with our traditional Ash Wednesday service. Someone has said that, with our Ash Wednesday confession, this is the most honest service in the entire year. It is a very special service, when we are able to live in gratitude as we claim the freedom of forgiveness that only He can give us. Our Youth will be leading us in special skits throughout this season. What a  blessing to have them and to watch them as their faith grows in a their relationship to a living, loving Savior. On Sunday April 24th  we will be blessed to share in Confirmation with nine of our youth!

I hope and  pray that you will take advantage of all these special Wednesday night dinners and services in this Holy Season. In our church family we experience one example after another of our Lord's presence and love. It does mean everything in the world to be able to come together as a family of faith and to stand beneath the cross of Christ to find new strength and courage.

Sundays in February are so special too:

Feb14th  we have Youth Sunday with a special skit by our Youth.

Feb 21st we are blessed to have Robin Cogan share a word with us. Robin and Rev. Tom Cogan are members at Pisgah – Tom is chaplain at the Lutheran Homes. Robin recently retired from 30 years teaching music in the public schools. She is currently attending Wartburg Seminary for a three year Diaconal ministry degree (see inside for more info) I am serving as her mentor in this program and we at Mt. Pisgah are  the beneficiaries of her shared ministry with us during this time.

Wed. Feb 24th   we are blessed to have the  African Children's choir with us –if interested in hosting please contact Sundays February 28th  and March 6th - Under the light of our cross I will speak about the CROSS of Christ.

Sunday March 13th is Youth Sunday with their Lenten drama

Sunday March 20th  we are blessed to have the Choir lead us in an Easter Cantata

Holy week starts with Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services and culminates with our Lord's Resurrection celebration March 27th

In His Risen love and Presence,

Pastor Mike
