Sunday School & Small Groups
Mount Pisgah offers a variety of Sunday School classes for adults which meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 am and in the homes of group leaders. To connect with a demographic that suits your current life circumstance, email our church office to be introduced to the leaders of our groups.
The walk to Emmaus is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers.
The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with the prayerful discernment and invitation from a sponsor. After one accepts this invitation they complete an application. The Emmaus leaders prayerfully consider each applicant and in God’s time, the person is invited to attend a three-day experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.
Following the three-day experience, participants are joined in small groups to support each other in their ongoing walk with Christ.
United Methodist Men
The United Methodist Men (UMM) is a creative, supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually, and to seek His will on a daily basis. UMM seeks to provide opportunities for spiritual growth, Christian service, and Christian fellowship. The main objectives are to support the United Methodist Church, to engage in outreach to the community and world, and to strive to clarify the identity and role of the Christian man in contemporary society. To get involved, contact the church office.
United Methodist Women
United Methodist Women (UMW) is the group of women at Mt. Pisgah organized for missions. Because the United Methodist Church is a connectional church, local units of UMW relate directly to district and conference organizations. The organized unit is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand the concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church. A member of UMW is one who commits herself to our purpose and chooses to participate in monthly meetings, prayer, giving, study, action, and/or service. General UMW meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month.
Our local church unit is divided into subgroups called circles, which also meet monthly–during the second week of the month, September to May–but on varying days and times to accommodate individual schedules. These meetings provide the opportunity for spiritual growth, Christian service and fellowship. Circles also become wonderful support groups. Your circle friends will be there to rejoice with you in good times and to give you support and encouragement in difficult times.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry at Mount Pisgah was established in 2009 by Pat Lawing. This ministry continues to be dedicated to providing knit or crochet shawls to individuals in the church who are experiencing one of many life transitions, such as death of a loved one, serious illness, or divorce. The shawls are gifts of love, friendship and caring, and serve as a reminder of God’s embracing love during difficult times as well as joyful times. The shawls are prayed over as they are being created; they are blessed by the group at their monthly meetings and they are blessed by a member of the ministerial staff before being presented to a recipient.
In addition, baby blankets are made by this group to be given to newborns associated with the church membership.
Due to health reasons, Pat has relinquished the leadership of this group. Currently, the Prayer Shawl Group meets on the 2nd Wednesday in the month from 2:00-4:00 pm under the direction of Susan Carrera and Iris Sharpe. We have lots of fellowship during our meetings as we work on our individual projects. Anyone is invited to join this group for the church has a constant need. If you do not know how to knit or crochet, please join us as we can offer lessons in these crafts. If anyone has a need for a shawl, please contact the church at 336-288-3321 or contact Susan or Iris.
