Welcome to Mt. Pisgah! 

We are a friendly, welcoming group of 800+ members and growing, who gather regularly to worship God and to help build God's kingdom on earth.


 A Message from Council President, Margo Mosley Smyre...

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 Smyre


 A Stone's Throw

Written by Pastor Mike Stone for May 2018

Christ is Risen—He is Risen Indeed!

What a blessed April we had with a record Easter attendance with nearly 600 in attendance! We have an exciting May to look forward to as well. God is good and life in Christ is exciting!    

On May 13th, we will give thanks to God for our mothers—we have a special service with message and gifts for all the women of the church!

May 20th, we celebrate Pentecost and God and Country Sunday. It truly is His spirit that inspires us in all that we do. Between services, we have a Congregational meeting and our Preschoolers will sing. That Sunday, we remember those who put themselves in harm’s way so that we might enjoy the freedoms we do today. We honor our military, as we have in the past, with the military services’ tribute and we will also honor all the firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical personnel who continually risk their lives for the sake of others.

Please take time to read through this newsletter because there are so many blessings you do not want to miss!

In His Gracious Grip,

Pastor Mike
