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,
A Stone's Throw

"A Stones Throw"
On March 5th we begin the season of Lent with our traditional Ash Wednesday service. Our Youth help with the dinner before and with the service. Someone has said that this is the most honest service in the entire year, when with Ashes on our forehead we come clean with confession and forgiveness before God and all people. I have an honest confession to share, though I obviously take time to share in the Wednesday night services, I am often not consistent with daily devotions during this special season. My guess is that I am not alone in this honest revelation. Because of this I have created a devotion consisting of just one scripture to meditate on all week starting Sunday March 2nd for 6 weeks. You see part of my problem is TMI, that is too much information coming at me, too much of the time. So how about if you and your family join us by putting this calligraphy scripture on your refrigerator or dining table and read each day and let God speak to you throughout the week through His special word? They are inside this newsletter and will be in each bulletin as well.
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 Lords 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.
Spring brings the hope and joy of new life which we truly celebrate this Easter. I can't wait to shout out with full confidence and joy the Easter words, “Christ is Risen”- “He is Risen Indeed!”
Mark your calenders----you don't want to miss any of the special times together!
In His Risen love and Presence,
