Welcome to Mt. Pisgah

   We are a friendly, welcoming group of about 500 (and growing!) people who gather regularly to worship God and to help build God's kingdom on earth.


A Message from Council President, Joel Kunze

"Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord." These are the words from the Apostle Paul and that is what you will find here at Mount Pisgah Lutheran Church. Grace is exactly what you will find in our church family.  

When I moved my family to Hickory, I visited many great churches but I needed a place to be fed and raise my Family. What I needed was a place filled with Grace, Mercy, and Peace.  A place of refuge from everyday life.  When you enter our church you will find a building full of sinners in need of Mercy and Grace.  We are very blessed to be a blessing to sinners, which is all of us.  This is a warm and inviting place.

We offer a thriving youth program and plenty to do for the young and older adults.  We are in the midst of a very exciting time.  We have embarked on a building campaign to accommodate our growing family.  This will include the expansion of our sanctuary, kitchen (we eat as a family on a regular basis!) and our Food Pantry.  Our Good Samaritan Food Pantry is well known in our community for providing food for those in need.  Again, we are blessed to be a blessing.

We offer services at 8:00am and 10:30am with Sunday school in between. There is always something going on here at Mount Pisgah so put on your jeans and come join us!

In his service,
Joel Kunze


 A Stone's Throw

Written by Pastor Mike Stone April 2014


"A Stones Throw"

Spring is here!  As we witness all the new life springing up around us it is perfect timing to be celebrating our new life in Christ as we rejoice in the hope and joy of Easter. I can’t wait to shout out “He is Risen!” and to hear the ancient response, “He is Risen Indeed!”

We have one experience after another of our risen Lord’s presence and love – don’t miss any!
