People of Shiloh,                                                                                            
 
Early in my time at Shiloh I heard the comment, “We leave politics at the door.”  
 
What has become abundantly clear in my time working with our community is that no one actually has an ability to do this.  Politics is a personal issue and just like any other part of our humanity, we never leave it behind.  When we enter the church, I fully expect each of you to bring with you everything that you carry during the week.  If we truly believe God can take away our sins, all those things standing between us and God, then all we can ask them to leave by the door are their physical belongings.  God is going to have to help relieve us of the other burdens.  
 
Once we are in our church, we have a responsibility as a part of a Christian community to offer everything of ourselves, the good, the bad, the difficult, and our desires to God.  This includes our politics.  Maybe God will move us to be in a new place when we leave.  Maybe God will confirm where we are.  That is something I expect each of us to work out with God.  If your politics come out in conversation within the church, just make sure you lead your statements with, “I” and not “you.”  And that you respectfully listen to all those who enter our space.
 
As your pastor, I expect that we all bring our joys, concerns, fears, hopes and even our politics to God in worship and prayer.
 
This year will be full of politics.  I have heard this week stories of people out in public berating some of our members for their views.  I have seen politics of fear shared by the leaders of our nation.  If we trust God to shape us, then we need to bring our politics to God in hopes God will shape us.  
 
If you have been disturbed by the change in the political rhetoric in our country, I encourage you to work on yourself first.  Consider taking a look at organizations like BraverAngels.Org that are working to encourage us to engage in a deeper civil debate over issues in these tumultuous times.  I know my daily prayer is that I gain a deeper respect for my neighbor in these times, even those I disagree with.
 
I pray that you will join me in this season in praying, hoping and working to better ourselves as people of Christ.
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
 
Pastor Tyler

…and the young shall see visions and the old shall dream dreams…
                                                                        Joel 2:28

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Cleaning Buckets NEEDED!! – With all the fires, floods, hurricanes and other natural disasters, it is more important than ever for us to lend a hand!!  Montana UMCs are joining together to collect supplies and money for cleaning buckets to be sent to the UMCOR-West in Salt Lake City.  Collection will happen now through October 18. You can donate a whole bucket of supplies (here is a list of the specific items they need), one or more of the individual items, or you can donate $75.00 per bucket, or any amount, to the church and we will send the money to UMCOR-West to purchase what they need (please note “UMCOR buckets” on your check).    

 

What Other Mission-Related Work is Happening?  Doing mission work in this environment has been challenging, but hasn’t stopped the crusaders of Shiloh UMC!!  Here are some of the things we are working on.  If you would like to join us, please call the office.

  • Letters Written to Educators and Assisted Living Residents – The Community Worship Groups wrote letters to educators in the three schools we are supporting this year (Big Sky, Boulder and Meadowlark). They also wrote notes to our  folks who are living in assisted living facilities.  The church received many, many thank you notes from that effort!

  • HUB – The HUB closed so Susan will contact Carmen to see what they are doing as an alternative to the services they provided, and that we supported (socks, sleeping bags, etc.).

  • Tumbleweed – Susan will contact them to see what they need in the way of support (in prep for the Missions Tree).

  • Rescue Mission – Susan will contact them to see if they would be interested in us sending the Peanut Butter, Jelly and Sandwich Bags we have left in the Sandwich Ministry cupboard and if they need any other support.

  • UMCOR Buckets – We are starting a Cleaning Bucket Drive.  It includes all the Montana UMCs.  We will be collecting them here at Shiloh and at Bozeman UMC.  

  • United Way Operation Supply – The schools we were going to support (Big Sky, Meadowlark and Boulder) had no idea what to ask for so we decided to support United Way’s “Operation Supply”.  Sandi Rogina sewed various sizes of kid’s masks to include with the other donations.

  • Food Bank – Folks have been dropping Food Bank donations at the church.  We plan to begin advertising Food Bank Sunday/Week the first week of every month.  We will engage the Community Worship groups to support this program. We are also asking someone to volunteer to update the Food Bank barrel.  It needs a refresh!

  • Free Store – Soup Mixes – We will start making soup mixes during/after Community Worship sometime in October/November.  Sleeping Bags – Susan will check with the Free Store on their need for sleeping bags. 

  • Habitat for Humanity – We signed up to provide lunch for the crew on the last Saturday in March 2021.  Also, we will be one of the sponsors for the Apostles Built that will kickoff in Spring 2021. 

Extra Egg Cartons and Food Donations – Please bring any extra egg cartons to the church and put them in the Food Bank barrel or in the wood box by the front door.  We will get them to the Food Bank.  Also, we will be collecting Food Bank donations the first week of every month.  For October, that will be from October 1-7 (Thursday-Wednesday).  Thank you, in advance, for your generosity!!

Feeling Creative? We will go back to using the Food Bank barrel the first week of every month to collect food for the Food Bank. Our Food Bank barrel has been around for a LONG time and needs a face lift! If you/your family have some creative ideas and are willing to give it a try, please call the office to make arrangements.  

 

In-Person Community Worship Groups – Want to join us for in-person worship in a setting of 15 or less people?? We have two options for signup.  If folks want to regularly attend Sunday at 8am, 10:30am, or noon or Wednesday at 4pm, they should call the office or email Pastor Tyler to signup.  If they need more flexibility, or are looking for more kid-friendly services, they need to go to https://reopen.church/r/4kmmvoBM each week before service to sign up and make sure there is space for them.  

Youth Group Meetings – If you know a Middle or High Schooler…  Middle School Youth Group is meeting at Shiloh UMC at 4:00 pm Sundays.  High School Youth Group is meeting at Mazevo on Grand Wednesdays at 7:30 pm.  

Prayer Team –  If you have a prayer you would like to share, please fill out a prayer card,  use our website liz@ShilohBillings.Church, text your prayer to 794-3055, or call the church at 656-0050.  Prayers will be shared with the Prayer Team and Pastor Tyler.   

 

So, no one told you life was going to be this way?  Join us as we study the enigmatic stories of the first century rabbi named Jesus.  The stories he told transform our thinking and call us to remember that God loves all people, in ways sometimes even we forget.  In this 7 week series you will hear old stories and receive the new lesson that will help you transform your life.
COVID-19  
We continue to monitor the situation as Montana opens in phases. Because we are committed to the health and safety of all, especially our most vulnerable of God’s children.  In Fall of 2020 we will be shifting to a model of community worship and online hybrid worship.  Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

Shiloh E-Pistle for Thursday, September 10, 2020

Please watch this message from Pastor Tyler and a special guest about worship in 2020, changes to online worship.  Check out more at www.ShilohBillings.Church/Worship

Worship Corner for September 10

 

People of Shiloh,

 

Over the last two weeks you have met Mr. Worship.  It was fun to have a guest to get excited about the upcoming worship we will have this fall at Shiloh.  If you want to catch one last engagement of Mr. Worship, I would encourage you to watch worship online this weekend, or check out our Facebook or Youtube channel.  I want to say a special thank you to Mr. Worship and take this opportunity to invite you to consider a worship option that will help you grow your faith this year.  Whatever option you pick, feel free to reach out to the office 656-0050 or email me at PastorTyler@shilohbillings.church and let us know what you are hoping to do.

 

I invite you to join us for worship in a way that works for your life, choose an online or in-person option:

 In Person 

We call our in person experience “community worship.”  It is a time for 15 or less people to gather in our worship space.  All people are asked to sign up in advance.  Each group is physically distanced and all people are asked to wear masks.  The group receives a bulletin with the instructions for worship and a leader guide the group through the worship.  

 

There is prayer, scripture, and a message from our pastor in each of these worship experiences.  

 

There are two in-person options to sign up for:  

 

1.   If you are a weekly attender and want to commit being present each week.  

 

Please contact the office to signup for one of the following worship times:  Sunday 8am, 10:30am, Noon, or Wednesday 4pm

 

2.   If you are new or know you can’t make it every week these services are for you.  These two are also our children friendly option.

 

Sundays and Wednesdays at 6pm.  (All participants must signup in advance.)

To sign up for these two services go to https://reopen.church/r/4kmmvoBM and signup for a worship service in the coming week.  If you signup, please plan on coming as we only have limited space.

 

Online

Each week we work to offer an online worship experience.  Our primary expression of this is our live online experience on Sunday Morning at 10:30am. There will be music, scripture, a message, prayer, and more.  We hope you will join us in your pjs, outside or wherever your device allows you to center together with God. 

 

I will be broadcasting live from the church and you can connect by sending prayers, questions and connection to (406)794-3055.  

 

We pray you find a way to join us for worship this fall.

 

Enthusiastic Peace,

 

Pastor Tyler 

(AKA Mr. Worship)
