Christ came to give us abundant life (John 10:10). One of the greatest thieves of that abundant living is fear. We all have fear of some type. Come claim the power over fear through the strength of Christ. For further information, contact the Congregational Care Ministry.

loving-mealsLoving Meals is a ministry designed to give physical support through meals to people who are experiencing difficult times due to surgery, delivery of baby, medical treatments and for many other reasons. Loving Meals volunteers are the hands and feet of Christ to the Body of Christ.

Meals are delivered to homes in disposable containers with no expectation of a visit from the person receiving the meal. Volunteers simply deliver the meal and leave.  If you find yourself in need of meals, please let us know. We will work out a delivery schedule with you as well as any dietary restrictions so you can be ministered to in Christ’s love.

We will ALL find ourselves in time of need. Whether that’s because we’ve lost a loved one, our health is failing, we face surgery, we have a baby or life offers a challenge we never expected. We will need help, encouragement and hope at some time. Congregational Care ministries are here to help you through those times of challenge. We will offer hope and rejoice as God gets you through times of trouble.

Mount Pisgah embraces the power of prayer.  We are called to call on the name of Jesus for healing, strength, power and to stay in communion with Him.  There are several ways you can tap into this amazing strength gained through prayer:

Intercessory Prayer Team

You can join our Intercessory Prayer Team to pray for others as needs arise.  We ask that you keep your involvement in this ministry confidential as well respecting all prayer requests by keeping them confidential as well.  As prayer needs arise, they are emailed out to the prayer team.  You pray for these needs from your own environment.

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 1 John 4:11

Stephen Ministry Illustrator

Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one, confidential ministry focused on listening, caring, and providing support during life’s challenges. When you need someone that is not quite as close to the situation you are in, a Stephen Minister can be there as a third party that will listen with no judgment toward you, your situation, or others involved in your situation. You meet with your Stephen Minister once a week for an hour. Stephen Ministers are placed with a care receiver of same gender and you are your Stephen Minister’s only care receiver. Care receivers may be going through challenges such as:

  • Divorce
  • Terminal illness
  • Loneliness
  • Terminal illness of a loved one
  • Spiritual confusion or frustration
  • Caregiving
  • Empty nest adjustments
  • Forgiveness issues
  • New baby
  • Grieving
  • Death of someone close
  • Loss of pregnancy
  • Illness
  • The list could go on…

I WOULD LIKE TO BE A STEPHEN MINISTER

Stephen Ministers are trained with over 100 hours of studying and classroom time. Stephen Ministries provides very thorough training. It is more than simply training – it is a lifestyle for the caring Christian and can be used in various areas of life and ministry.

Training begins in the Fall of each year and concludes in April with a Stephen Ministry commissioning during a Sunday morning service. The classes are held on Monday nights at Mount Pisgah from 7:00pm – 9:30pm. Once the training is complete Stephen Ministers meet the second and fourth Monday nights of each month 7:00pm – 9:00pm. We ask that Stephen Ministers commit to a two – year term of Stephen Ministry service upon completion of training. A training kit is provided for a fee of $50.
