Please note the Mount Pisgah Church Council Executive Committee has prepared this webpage reflecting the facts and information as presently understood and communicated by the United Methodist Church. This situation has been dynamic, evolving, and changing over the course of the past several years and even as recently as the June 2022 North Georgia Annual Conference. As new information and guidance from the United Methodist Church is provided, if any, additional steps and considerations may come to bear. We will update this webpage as appropriate to continue to proactively inform the people of Mount Pisgah.
