Do you have a passion for singing?

I Invite You to Join the Choir I would like to personally invite you to sing with the Shiloh UMC Choir this season. We are an open group of people who enjoy lifting our voices to enhance and guide the worship experience. Our choir members all started without knowing their part and learned by practicing Sunday mornings prior to worship. My desire for you as a choir member is that you have a beautiful learning experience, have fun (yes, we laugh plenty), and learn how to read and understand music more clearly if you don’t already know.
You won’t be required to sit with the choir the entire worship service (sit with family if you prefer), you won’t have to be in worship every single Sunday (we sing three Sundays per month), and you won’t have to make a rehearsal commitment another night each week. Rehearsals for the fall begin September 8. To participate, just show up September 8 at 9:15 am and then sing with us in worship. Hit me up if you have any questions, worries, or concerns. My email is
Will I see you and have you sing with the rest of us on September 8? I’m hoping so!

Children’s Sunday School

Sundays after Children’s time during the 10:15am worship.  We will be taking a break during the summer months, and will return late August.
Through Shiloh UMC’s Sunday School, we hope to help raise our young children to be faithful disciples of Jesus
Christ. Our classes
encourage spiritual and emotional growth through a variety of Bible lessons, discussions, music, art, drama, and recreation.

Adult Sunday School

Shiloh UMC’s Adult Sunday School meets Sundays at 9:00am in the Education Wing.
Our study presents stimulating lessons that explore the biblical message and how to apply that to daily life. The curriculum helps the Christian move from a focus on the Word to reflection on personal, family, church, and community concerns. All lessons are biblically based and Christ-focused.
We believe the best way to learn is within an atmosphere of respect and sharing, illumined by a core of our Christian faith.
Class Leader: Norma Smith

Deeper Dive – Adult Spiritual Learning

The Bible is a sacred text that we hold in reverence as Methodists, but how do we understand it. Pastor Tyler invites you to dive deeper into the text, to understand its origins, and where you might gain deeper understanding from it. We will be using Adam Hamilton’s book Making Sense of the Bible for this study. This first month we will be focusing on “What is the Bible? and the Old Testament.”
Classes will be held twice on Tuesdays, and if that doesn’t work keep an eye out in late February for a Sunday morning study the 6 weeks before Easter.

St. John’s Mission Ridge─Tuesday @ 10:30 Mar 10, 17, 24, and 31

Faith and Film


Join us as we watch a movie, have some discussion and see where God appears to us in popular movies. This month we will be watching Leave No Trace. Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When their idyllic life is shattered, both are put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland. Join us for the movie and discussion at the church on Sunday, March 15 at 5:30 pm. Bring a snack to share and a friend or two and join us!


Please join our casual and friendly group for a night at the movies on the second Sunday of each month at 5:30 PM in Shiloh’s Fellowship room. Fellowship, food and engaging discussions of what we think about the movie. Bring a friend and goodies to share if you wish.

Prayers for Shiloh

Join anytime!

Our prayer group meets each week. We invite anyone who wants to attend. This group will practice praying for our community prayers, our world, and connecting with God. Each week we will take the prayers from Sunday and any other prayers lifted up to the Shiloh community. We will meet in the Sanctuary at 11:00.
