Interest Groups

At Mount Pisgah, we believe that life is meant to be experienced in relationship with Christ and with each other. We strive to build community and a sense of family by offering opportunities for individuals to connect to the world through their church.

Interest Groups are designed to connect people with common interests or talents, no matter where they might find themselves on their journey of faith. Interest Groups provide great Christian fellowship and the opportunity for members to understand, develop, and use the many gifts they possess… all while having fun in the process!

Scrapbooking Fellowship

The Scrapbooking Fellowship is a group of adults and young adults who are interested in preserving their family memories and special events in scrapbooks. Sometimes individuals prefer to create handmade greeting cards or even spend their time knitting, rather than scrapbooking.

This activity is open to members of Mount Pisgah Church, as well as non-church members. We meet approximately two weekends each month–on Friday (10 am–10 pm) and Saturday (10 am–4 pm)–for a time of fellowship and sharing ideas while working on individual and occasional group projects. Each person furnishes his or her own supplies. The Friday night dinner usually consists of pot-luck or order-in; this expense is shared by all who participate.

Dates are announced in the church calendar and reservations are required through the group coordinator so that an adequate number of tables can be set up.

We also retreat to Camp GuilRock twice a year (fall and spring) for a 4-day scrapbooking weekend. It is a wonderful time of fellowship, spiritual renewal, and enjoyment of the camp’s beautiful scenery.

Interested in joining us? We’d love to have you! For more information on the Scrapbooking Fellowship, contact LuAnn Christy at (336) 288-3321.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

A Prayer Shawl Ministry was established at Mount Pisgah in June 2009 with a group of approximately 25 ladies. This ministry is dedicated to providing knit or crochet prayer shawls to individuals who are experiencing one of many life transitions, such as death of a loved one or friend, serious illness, divorce, or relocation to assisted living or nursing home, etc. 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 and blessed on the church’s altar by the Senior Minister prior to being presented.

The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month with an afternoon session from 2:30 – 4:00 pm and an evening session from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. Participants may choose the afternoon or evening session, whichever fits best in their individual schedules. Anyone interested in presenting a shawl to a relative or friend should email Pat Lawingor call the Church Office at (336) 288-3321.
