October 15, 2017 – Pastor’s Corner

A message from our Pastor – 

Each week I will share a Pastor’s Corner or a member of our congregation will write a message.  These will come out on Friday of each week and will include reminders of the topic for Sunday Worship.  We hope this ministry brings blessings to you wherever you are on life’s journey.  
____________________________________________________

As I get to know each of you and we enter into our time of ministry together, it seems appropriate to introduce my family to the congregation.  Crystal and I each consider our lives a calling and we also find parenting a calling.  As we work with the people of Billings and Shiloh we will each be seeking ways to serve in the places God calls us, and we hope to support others in doing the same.

Crystal, my amazing spouse of 10 years, is a mental health counselor.  She primarily serves children under the age of 12.  We each work hard to split our work week to each serve the community.  She will be practicing her therapy in town as well as serving various non-profits in her work.  Crystal also provides training and supervision in the field of play therapy, so others can become licensed to serve children in their communities. 

As we get settled into Billings, Crystal and I will be balancing work schedules, and support our family.  We have two young daughters, Corinne(7) and Quincy(4).  Corinne is in elementary school and Quincy attends pre-school.  You will often see each of them at meetings and various church activities.  I encourage you to introduce yourself to them, and if you give them a little time, they will probably ask who you are too. 

Family is an important part of our life, and as a family we work hard to serve the community we are a part of.  Our whole family is thankful for the gracious way Shiloh UMC has welcomed us to Billings, and we look forward to prayerfully working together to share Christ’s peace, hope, love and joy in our Billings community. 
           
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

Worship on Sunday – Half Truths: “God won’t give you more than you can handle.”

There are several phrases that are associated with the Bible, phrases that are said at different times in our culture to evoke faith, and yet they are not in the scriptures anywhere.  Each of these phrases has the power to both endear people to our faith and frighten others away.  Over the next 5 weeks we will be exploring some of these phrases, seeking God’s presence in them, and dispelling the pieces of them that cause harm to others in the faith journey.

Worship begins at 8:00 am and 10:15 am on Sunday and childcare is provided. 

Reminders for the Shiloh Community

It’s Noisy Offering Sunday – please bring your change to church.  The
kids will pick it up and will donate 10% to mission work and will use
the rest to support their activities. 

Choir practice starts at 9:00 on

Sunday.  “Animate” (Adult Bible Study) will be held at 9:00 am in the
Education Wing.  This is an multi-media class that focuses on seven
aspects of faith: God, Religion, Jesus, Salvation, the Cross, the
Bible and the Church.  The Faith in Film group will show the movie
“Lion” and will share treats and discussion beginning at 5:30 pm on
Sunday at the church.  Everyone is welcome. 

The Caregivers SupportGroup meets Tuesday at 1:30 pm.

Pastor Tyler will begin a series called “God Hunger” at on Wednesdays.  Come at 11:30am for prayer and/or join us for an informal lunch with the Pastor at noon.

Come join us as we partner with God!

October 8, 2017 – Pastor’s Corner

Over this past week, I have seen the degrees of separation between myself and the awful events that happened in Las Vegas, grow smaller each day.  My family knew one of the people at the concert that night, members of our congregation knew another.  This event reveals how devastating acts of violence can be and the ripple effects they can have on a community and our nation. 
            Violence riddled the nation of Israel during Jesus’ time too.  It is why he shared the statement, “Happy are people who make peace, because they will be called children of God (Matthew 5:9 CEB).”  Jesus knew that if we were to be a better people, to be closer to God we had to seek out peace in all its forms, and we would have to work for it.  After this week and the trauma we have seen, it is clear that there is a lot of work to do. 
            I invite you to prayerfully consider what we might do to stop violence from happening.  How might we be called to curb this awful cycle we are on?  There is no simple answer, and even as answers come to this incident and about what caused it, they will not answer the compelling question of how we reduce violence in our world, our country and our communities. 
            In the meantime, pray, pray for the victims, the first responders, those families impacted.  Pray also for the perpetrator of this violence, as Jesus taught us to do.  Pray deep in your hearts that we might see an end of violence, and pray that God might open us to opportunities to stop violence, and prevent it. 
 
Blessings,
Pastor Tyler
 
Dear God,
Let our lives be free from violence,
And when it cannot let it be free from fear,
And when we feel fear, help us know your love,
Jesus help us to be the peacemakers you called us to be.
Amen
