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 August 2015


“A Stones Throw”

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 inspiring with KIC camp, VBS, Confirmation camp and work camp it was 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 yesterdays 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
