Pastor’s Corner – June 17, 2018

Join us for Worship!
Pastor’s Corner – 
People of Shiloh,
 
On this Father’s day I am proud to announce we are a proud owner of a new Annual Conference in the United Methodist Church.
 
Frist, I am going to answer the question, “What is and Annual Conference?”  An Annual Conference is a regional group of churches who work together with their Bishop to actively seek ways to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and transform the world in their particular area.  Pastors are members of that Annual Conference and are called to serve the entire area in their ministry.  Our Annual Conference formerly was Yellowstone, and we are now a part of the Mountain Sky Annual Conference encompassing Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and 1 church in Idaho.  
 
Second, let me share what this means for us.  For 20 years of my life I have seen our Annual Conference struggling to do all the jobs assigned to it.  One area in particular has been an ability to recruit enough pastors to serve our region. As we work to form the new culture and structure for our Annual Conference, my hope is that challenges like a pastoral shortage become a thing of the past.  Our Bishop, Karen Oliveto, has already stated that we have a waiting list of pastors wanting to join our area, because we are trying new and bold ways to share the gospel with people.  
 
Friends, I invite you to join me in celebrating the new Mountain Sky Annual Conference and helping us nurture our church to continue growing people to connect with God, and transform the world.  
 
 
Enthusiastic Shalom,
Pastor Tyler 

Scripture for study this week: Psalm 20

Pastor’s Corner – June 10, 2018

Pastor’s Corner – 
People of Shiloh,
This week Buddy Kastrop(your church represantitive), Pam Dandrea(serving on the Annual Conference Board of Pensions) and me are away at Annual Conference.  This yearly gathering of United Methodists in our region is a time when we set the course for our faith communities, dream together, and pray that God might do good through our ministries.  We worship, offer donations, give in mission work, and do the work of organizing or institution during this time.  This will be my 20thyear of attending Annual Conferences in the regions of our church that I have served in.  
 
I would invite you to each hold Buddy, Pam and I in prayer.  This Annual Conference will carry the added challenge of seeing the potential end of the Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain Annual Conferences and the creation of the new Mountain Sky Conference.  This process of becoming one large conference has been in the works since I started conferences 20 years ago.  People are nervous about what this look like, and I am prayerful that we can build a conference that can resource local churches for ministry in the 21stcentury.  
 
As United Methodists we are uniquely poised to offer ministry grounded in God’s Holy Spirit, the teachings of Christ, and trusting God is with us all.  We are poised because we believe God works with people throughout their lives to help them grow, that we are capable of receiving salvation at any age, and growing God’s purpose for our lives.  We are not unique in this call as Christians, but we are unique in the way we do this by going into places, that many do not, with a message of God’s love.  
 
Thank you for your prayers.
 
Enthusiastic Shalom,
Pastor Tyler
