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 August 2014


“A Stones Throw”

“Be sure to check the power source!” Those words I have heard numerous times during our building project. It got me to thinking that so often when something is not working properly that often the last thing we  check is the power supply.

So it is 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 supply that only He can give.

This summer with an amazing Confirmation camp and work camp it was so inspiring 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 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? 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 from 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
