Click here to watch a video to prepare your heart and mind for worship.
People of Shiloh,

As I experience my own loss this week, I am thankful for those who accompany folks struggling in our church withconnection, and life’s challenges.  Our visitation team is phenomenal and needs our support to continue. Please take a minute to read about visitation below.  
My mother, Barb Amundson’s memorial service is Saturday, March 16, 11 am at St. Paul’s UMC in Helena. Thank you for your prayers and support, if you would like to make a memorial gift please make it to Shiloh UMC in my mother’s name.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Tyler
 
You may have heard the words “Visitation Ministry” but really don’t know much about it. Others may have no idea that Shiloh United Methodist Church has this active ministry.Hopefully this information will expand your knowledge and awareness. 
WHO:The following people are currently delivering the Visitation Ministry: Lenore Kipp, Betty Dubeau, Jennine Budge, Sally Thompson, and Peg Parker. 
WHEN:Visits are made weekly, on a rotation basis, thus each minister typically visits each of the visitees, once a month.
WHERE:Those visited may be in the hospital, or in a care-giving facility, or in their own home but no longer drive. 
WHY:The reasons for the visits vary: perhaps to provide a spiritual connection to their faith; perhaps to provide company for those who are lonely; perhaps to share the fears and anxieties being experienced; or perhaps to let each know they are not forgotten. At times, all of the “whys” may be provided during one visit. 
Most often visits stop only upon the death of the person visited. However, other times the visits are for a short time, usually until the current crisis is resolved. If you know someone who may benefit from this ministry, call Liz or Pastor Tyler at the church office. There are no requirements to request visitation, including church membership.

America is experiencing a spiritual crisis, we as American Christians find ourselves in a wilderness of people seeking spirituality. We also know that Christians need a language to talk about their faith that draws people deeply to God. Join us during this Lenten season as we journey through the wilderness of faith, like Jesus and Moses have done before us. The skills we learn this Lent will help us find our way to God, and maybe even allow us to help others in our lives.

Pastor’s Corner – For Sunday, March 10, 2019

Special Note from Pastor Tyler:

Shiloh Family, 

This last Friday my amazing and loving mother Barbara Flint Amundson passed away.  I was blessed to be by her side with my father and family.  I will be unavailable over the next week to offer pastoral care, and if you need any support my colleagues in Billings are ready to offer support along with our visitation team.  I appreciate all the notes of care I have already received and am thankful for our community.

Please also keep our congregation in your prayers at this time as there are many experiencing unexpected illness, and challenges.  May all know God is with us, and especially with all those experiencing challenge and loss in this season.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Tyler

Did you know the Gospel of Luke is the longest of the 4 gospels and the only gospel written by a gentile, someone outside the Jewish-Christian community?  
 
This year I am challenging our congregation to read the Gospel of Luke.  In future years I will challenge us to read the other gospels together.  Reading the entirety of the books, helps us to know who Jesus can be in our lives and to know better the stories we are called to live by.  To help us do this. I would encourage you to read the chapters of Luke in the following progression.  
 

 

February  1-3
March  4-6
April 7-9
May 10-11
June-July 12-16
August 17-19
September 20-21
October 22-23
November 24
December (Read something else in scripture)


 
As Lent approaches I always feel a reconnection to the gospel stories.  Chapters 4-6 envelop the beginning of Jesus ministry.  Jesus did not start out like a lamb, more like a lion. He stood for caring for all people, he boldly declared that all people belong to God, and he did not shy away from those in authority when they tried to prove him wrong. Courage is what Jesus demonstrates in these chapters, and courage is what I invite us to explore this season. Courage is wholehearted living, and I believe that is what we see in these chapters of Luke.  
 
I encourage you to pick up your Bible and begin reading Luke this month, let’s see how reading together draws us closer to each other and to God.
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler
