Pastor’s Corner for Sunday, February, 9 2020

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

People of Shiloh – 

One of the powerful pieces of our faith tradition is our history.  One piece of the history that I continually thank God for is the saints who went ahead of us in establishing higher education in our Montana communities.  Rocky Mountain College here in Billings is one of those institutions.  Established as a result of combining Montana Wesleyan College with other early institutions, Rocky Mountain College is a legacy of our Methodists forbearers in the faith.  

These early Methodists believed deeply that God’s grace worked through an accessible education to people of all walks of life.  This week I want to invite anyone interested in how we can support Rocky into the future to join me for a church leader breakfast on Wednesday, February 12, at 8am and followed by a history presentation at 9:30.  The breakfast is located in the “Great Hall” of Prescott Hall.  Please RSVP to the church office or my email by Sunday, February 9 if you plan to attend.  

Finally, I want to encourage you to all attend our Valentine’s Day Intergenerational Dance and Fun on Friday, February 14, from 5-8pm.  This is for all ages, all who are a part of our church.  Come have fun, enjoy one another and make a memory with your church, your friends or your family.  

Join us as we see how God will use these two events to deepen our connection to our community and each other.

Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

FEBRUARY WORSHIP – true. Reading Scripture in the Age of Fake News is the February 2020 Sermon Series.  Join us in studying the Bible, and an overview of the scriptures and what the book means for us as Christians.  With all the fast ways to transmit information in the 21st century, it is easy to transmit good information as well as bad information.  Through sermons in February we will explore how we read scriptures to find the truth God asks us to find for our Christian living.

FAITH AND FILM – This month the movie will be  10 Things I Hate About You. This movie is funny and touching and teaches several lessons about building relationships.  The movie will be shown Sunday at 5:30 pm.  Bring a snack and a friend and join us for a evening with a good movie and discussion afterwards.

DEEPER DIVE –BIBLE STUDY “Making Sense of the Bible”- 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.  Classes are held on Tuesdays and if that doesn’t work keep an eye out late in February for Sunday morning study 6 weeks before Easter. We meet at Mission Ridge Tues at 10:30 am, Feb. 11, 18, 25 and at Shiloh UMC Tues at noon, Feb 11, 25.  Books are $17.00 and you can get one in the office.

AGING WELL – Please mark your calendars for the Aging Well luncheon on Wed, Feb. 12th, at 11:30 am.  Lunch will be providied by Highgate Senior Living-Billings.  The topic will be “Overcoming Social Isolation” presented by Trudi Paulson, Director of Family Services at St. John’s Ministries. As we age, we may develop health problems, lack of mobility, loss or illness of a loved one, fear of falling or getting sick to name just a few. This presentation will discuss how aging might affect our ability to stay connected to others.  Join us as we discuss this important topic.

RELAY FOR LIFE DAFFODIL SALE – The Shiloh Relay for Life team will be selling daffodils for spring. Order bright yellow bunches for yourself or someone you love and bring them a touch of spring.  A bunch of 10 will cost $10.00. We will be taking orders thru February 23rd.  The flowers will be delivered on March 23.  Please contact Pat Montgomery at 655-3507 or Liz Stanhope at 656-0050.  There are order forms in the kitchen and in the office.  Thank you for supporting your Relay for Life Team. 

CONTRIBUTION STATEMENTS – Your year-end contribution statements have been mailed.  Shiloh UMC continues to be a generous congregation and we thank you for your support. If you have questions regarding your statement, please call the church at 656-0050 on Mondays.  To locate mail you might receive at the church, like a birthday or anniversary card, look in the slot with the first letter of your last name in the mailboxes by the front door of the church. 

VALENTINES DAY DANCE AND MORE!! – Join us for an evening of dancing, bingo and much more on Friday, February 14th, from 5:00pm – 8:00 pm. Everyone is invited to enjoy a night of fun and fellowship and good food.  We will have a taco bar, nachos and dessert.  Cost will be a free-will donation and the funds will go to the Relay for Life Team. We hope to see you all there.

TEXT GIVING – You can contribute to the ministries and missions of Shiloh UMC over your phone.  It’s easy! Text “give” to 406-412-2402.  The first time you do this, the system will reply with a text message containing a link.  Click on the link to open a web page where you will enter an amount (we suggest $1 for your initial donation), your name, home address, email address and your debit/credit card or ACH bank information.  Once you’ve completed this initial step, the system will respond with a text message indicating that you have successfully linked.  After the first time, you will be able to just text the amount you want to give in the following formats: “give $10” to give $10 right now; “give $10 weekly” to set up a weekly donation of $10. You can also use this option to give to special offerings (Student Day, Food Bank, etc.), pay for Bible Study books or pay registration fees for events, etc.  The church will pay standard fees for these transactions.

FREE STORE – The Free Store is still looking for backpacks and luggage of any size!    

The Larger United Methodist Church – Information leading up to General Conference 2020

Based on the national news attention and the things you may read about the United Methodist Church in the headlines I want to keep you informed.  As your pastor, I will keep pertinent articles listed here about what is coming to the International Church this year as we see the continued work of discerning our ability to be inclusive of all people.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

These articles I believe help you to stay informed and up to date.

Pastor’s Corner for February 2, 2020

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

People of Shiloh – 
 
This month in worship we are going to be studying the Bible, and specifically the overview of the scriptures and what the book means for us as Christians.  With easy means to transmit information in the 21st century, it is easy to transmit good information as well as bad information.  I can easily get online and search for answers to my biblical questions.  However, I do not know if my results are factual or true without knowing how to explore my answers in more depth.  Through 3 sermons in February I want to explore how we read the scriptures to find the truth we need to find for our Christian living.  
 
The other thing I need to ask for this month is your prayers.  Please pray for a weekend called “Chrysalis.”  February 7-9.  During this weekend I will be spending a time with High Schoolers at First United Methodist Church as a spiritual director. Chrysalis is a Christian spiritual and leadership development retreat for teenagers. It is modeled on the Walk to Emmaus and it is a powerful experience for those teens. In my role I will be praying, offering messages, and supporting these teenagers as they grow closer to God and each other. Keep us in prayer for a good weekend and pray that First UMC can get the teenager smell out sometime before spring. 
 
Thank you for your prayers and for learning alongside of us this month.
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

FREE STORE – We have had many requests for adult backpacks, usually from men.  This is a reflective of the number of homeless who use one to hold all their belongings.  In addition, luggage, any size, is taken as soon as it comes in.  As always, the Free Store is appreciative of any donation.  However, due to storage problems, we are currently accepting only winter clothing. Thank you for your continued support.
 
VISITATION MINISTRY – In the past, one of the Visitation Volunteers visited both hospitals every Monday- Friday.  The goal was to provide spiritual support for anyone from Shiloh who happened to be in the hospital.  Many options were available to the patient and/or the family: prayers, anointing, communion and support in general.  These same options continue to be available but a call must be made to the church to notify a member of the Visitation Team to go to the hospital (656-0050).  The Visitation Team has lost several members and currently the team is very small.  PLEASE call.  This is a very important ministry for all involved.
