 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 May 2017

What a blessing this April was and what a joy to anticipate all that May has to offer. I love this drawing of our Risen Lord — surely He had a smile as He greeted the disciples after Easter. As we Found out on Easter, it is impossible not to get a smile on your face when we share the age old Easter words “Christ is Risen — He is Risen Indeed!”
What a blessing Easter services and breakfast were! It is a joy to be the people of God at Mt. Pisgah and as Easter People we are truly people of Joy. As one bumper sticker puts it, “Christ is Smile!“ As you look at at our new worship space and our new additions from the pavilion to the bandstand and now our new storage facility, we realize that God truly has been good to us! 

We have 11 different events in the next year scheduled for using the bandstand pavilion area! Our first one Sunday service, Blessing of the Animals, May 10th, outside; bring your pet and join us for lunch too! We have special Mother's Day Services, May 17th, (gifts for all women) and our Congregational meeting, Preschool singing, and God and Country services, on May 24th. You dont want to miss a thing!
In His gracious grip,


Pastor Mike
