HELP US SHARE THE JOY OF CHRIST IN OUR HOMETOWN

Shiloh Community Garden

The Free Store is open for shoppers the 1

st and 3rd

You can become involved by volunteering your time while the Store is open, by donating items (linens, kitchen items, clothing), or by donating money to help meet the $200.00/month rent and utility costs. Please contact Peg Parker: 406-690-6370 or at pjayco44@gmail.com.
 
Sharing Others’ Generosity Through Our Faith
 

2017: A Year at the Free Store: there were 1,222 family visits for an average of 53 each Saturday.  Of the 1,222, new families comprised 26.5% of the families (325). No advertising is done so those learning about the Free Store are hearing about it through word-of -mouth.  As the Free Store begins its 7th year of ministry, none of this would be possible without the support you and others have given as well as the time and energy given by the many volunteers. A special thank-you to SUMC Missions Committee and the Lunch Committees for the very generous cash donations, which will be earmarked for the yearly obligation of $2400.00 that the Free Store has to EUMC for building use and utility expenses.

 

 

Prayer Wrap Ministry

The prayer wrap ministry is strong. We give knit, crocheted, or quilted wraps (blankets) to those in need-facing surgery, in treatment, after trauma-something tangible for them to hold on to as an expression of care and compassion.
 
Those who have received one of these wraps are so very touched by their meaning and it gives them hope and strength knowing that their faith family at Shiloh cares.
 
If you would like to donate to this ministry or know someone who would appreciate receiving a wrap please contact the church office.
 
 

 Sandwich Ministry

Every month Shiloh UMC’s Sandwich Ministry makes a couple hundred sandwiches for delivery to The Women & Family Shelter in Billings, providing meals to those who turn to the shelter for their services and support. Any sandwiches that aren’t needed by WFS are taken to the Rescue Mission to feed the homeless.
You’re welcome to join us on the last Friday of each month at 12:15pm to make sandwiches and bag cookies.
Donations are always welcome. Items we can always use include: sliced brick-style cheese (unwrapped), zippered sandwich bags, creamy peanut butter, grape jelly, homemade cookies, and of course we’ll accept donations to purchase meat, bread, and fruit for this ministry.
