 Welcome to Mt. Pisgah! 

 

We are a friendly, welcoming group of about 800 (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

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

Written by Pastor Mike Stone for November 2017

NOVEMBER is a great month—one of my favorites! Thanksgiving is such a meaningful day. I am so grateful to be a citizen of a country which understands the importance of observing a national holiday solely to give thanks to God, as we acknowledge that from Him, all blessings flow. Sunday November 19th, we have our Thanksgiving dinner at 5:15 pm and service at 6:30. We share this special service and meal with Mt. Pisgah AME and Unity Lutheran Churches. Don't miss this great blessing and opportunity to give thanks to God and to celebrate the freedom we have to worship.

So what am I thankful for?

* A congregation and family that knows so well that we are blessed to be a BLESSING!

* Youth who are such a vital part of our life together and in worship through dramas as they share special reminders that all He wants from us is to give what we have first been given- our lives and our hearts.

* For our little ones, who bless us so much, particularly this time of year, and for their ringing and singing!

* To be recognized by the Church at large as one of the fastest growing Lutheran Congregations. In a
national survey the number one hunger and need was for spiritual growth. So thankful to all who lead
worship, Sunday school; Bible studies and prayer groups and retreats as we truly do grow closer to Him together.

* As I was sharing with someone the other day, I am grateful for a Congregation “that gets it”. Knowing that our facilities are here to be utilized—by the Senior Center, AA, Boy Scouts, Daisy Scouts, and numerous other activities - just look at the calendar! Thankful that the community knows us as a busy place but most importantly a "grace place," from Fall Festivals, (remember this Saturday), to our ever expanding Food pantry. We understand that we are called not to hoard but to share in every way, that we are blessed to be a blessing and by so doing show who we know—a gracious and generous Savior and Lord.

* I am so grateful for this time of year, though time just seems to just fly by. It is a blessing to gain an hour. 

* ALL SAINTS Sunday, November 5th, as we turn our clocks back! With time going so quickly it is so important to chose carefully how we spend it.

 

In my preparing our Advent Jesse Tree devotions, I am SO grateful to have traditions like these with our families and our Church family to come to. Wednesday night Advent services begin November 29th as we share in the Holden Evening prayer, and from the light of the Christmas tree, as we hear each Wednesday about a new bible character. As I write this I am also so grateful for God's Word which gives us countless examples of real people like us, who faced similar challenges, as we do, as they too lived out their faith. Call me sentimental but I find as I get older these familiar traditions don't get “old” but seem more precious each time we share them. Hope you and yours can join us in each of these special times of worship together.

 

In His gracious grip,

Pastor Mike
