Generosity Corner for Sunday, November 17, 2019

Click here to watch a video to prepare your heart and mind for our service Sunday.

Thank you with great Shalom!
 
Shalom is a deep sense of peace rooted in the God we gather to know every week.  I offer gratitude rooted in that peace for the many ways in which each of the members and friends of our congregation work to help Shiloh be a beacon of hope, love, joy, and peace to our community.  
 
Being in the transforming lives work can be a hard thing to make happen.  There are so many people out there seeking to make a quick dollar by selling you something to make you magically better: physically, mentally, or spiritually.  Those of us who participate in a community of faith is in this same work, but unlike the quick fixes, we are in it for the long haul.  We believe that continued growth toward Christ in the community will be transformative and will bring us a deep life rooted in the Shalom we sing about each Sunday.  
 
This past month we have talked a lot about what it takes to fund a church.  It takes financial resources, each of us giving faithfully from what we have in hopes that as a community we can use that resource to be an agent of God’s love in our community.  It takes sweat hours to do the labor we might send outside our building if we weren’t a streamlined, no profit, community working to better our larger community in God’s love.  
 
Mostly it takes faith that God might do something through a rag-tag group, like us, to transform the world.  This Sunday we are going to be asking you to fill out estimate of giving cards.  When we do this it is to help us work toward doing this work in an informed faithful way.  If you are a guest, be our guest, set aside the card and join us for lunch Sunday.  However, if you feel called to be part of the ongoing work of Shiloh, fill out a card and help us know how we might faithfully live toward the work God has in store for us.  
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
 
Pastor Tyler

Generosity Corner for Sunday, November 10, 2019

Click here to watch a video to prepare your heart and mind for our service Sunday.

Grace and Peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ!

By now I’m sure you’re aware that Sunday, November 17 is Consecration Sunday at Shiloh. We know that your spiritual growth and the mission and ministries of Shiloh are important to you, and so on behalf of the Generosity Team at Shiloh, I’d like to invite you to attend the two special events happening on Consecration Sunday – morning worship and the Celebration Luncheon immediately following worship. This is a catered meal, so we need reservations for each person. If you have not finalized plans to attend these two events, I’d encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

Our goal is to have every member and regular worship attendee present. If you did not make a reservation during the last two weeks, please let us know that you will be present by calling 656-0050 or completing the form at shilohbillings.church/generosity. This is an important process both for your own spiritual growth in the practice of generosity, but also for the effectiveness of our church’s mission and ministries over the next year. Please plan to be present on November 17. I look forward to seeing you there!

 

In Christ,

Pastor Tyler
