46 Youth from Mt Pisgah went to Pigeon Forge over MLK weekend with 10,000 others for a Christian conference. We are Blessed!

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, January 2015


“A Stones Throw”

Just a reminder to all the guys Valentines day is Saturday February 14th. We have a dinner dance in Celebration Hall 6:00 -10:00 for our Youth and young at heart! February is often called the month of LOVE. On Youth Sunday the 15th  Love will be our focus together. As one of our members likes to put it, “we are so blessed with such a loving Church family!” This is truly evidenced in our life and care together in so many ways. I never want to take for granted the compassion we have as a Church family or the joy we share in fellowship. We are truly just passing on what has first been given to us, as the Bible reminds us, “we love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19)      

We have some unique opportunities to grow “in love” in our relationship with family, friends, and God. With a new year 2015 let's all make a renewed commitment to get involved in Bible study, Sunday school and devotions. Your continued faithful giving to both B2 B3 helps us grow into our future together and your general stewardship helps us to continue the vital ministries and outreach that are needed today. Your prayers are so important as we continue to seek God's guidance for Plan “G” in everything we do.  

It was a great joy to have attended our sixth Gatlinburg Youth Conference with some 10,000 plus young people gathered together from over 12 denominations and 15 states. As we made our way down the mountain with 50 of our own participants, I was driving a van with both singing and sleeping kids. We were all inspired but exhausted - or as a dear friend used to put it we were, “Too Blessed to be stressed!” 

As we move forward as God's people we are grateful for our building renovations and we prayerfully consider new ministry possibilities and ways that we are “Blessed to be a Blessing.” It is an honor for all of us to be  a part of this historic time in our church family. We are all  part of something bigger than ourselves and even our own lives, as the decisions and building that has taken  place will bless many whom we may never even know in future generations. You and I are blessed to share in such a legacy of  Love. 

We cannot even fully imagine all that our Lord has in store for us.  

As Paul wrote in 1Corinthians 2:9 


  • No eye has seen
  • No ear has heard
  • No mind has begun to perceive  
  • All that God has in store for those who love Him.

In His cross shaped love +
