Pastor’s Corner for Sunday, January 27, 2019

Don’t forget the Birthday Potluck for Shiloh UMC, after the second service.  Come join us as we celebrate our 33 year as Shiloh UMC.
Click here to watch a video invite to prepare us for worship.
Happy Birthday Shiloh!
 
This month Shiloh is 33 years old.  When our church was started the average cost of a new house was $89,430, gas was 89 cents a gallon, and a new Ford Mustang cost $7,452.  In that same year the Chernobyl nuclear disaster happened, the space shuttle Challenger exploded, Nintendo came out with its first console, South African apartheid was happening, and the United Kingdom and France announced plans to build a tunnel under the English Channel.  
 
In 1986 Shiloh was in the middle of a farmer’s field, and now Billings is bounding beyond us.  On Sundays, I say we are on the growing edge of Shiloh, and the truth is we are now surrounded by our community on all sides. Today we will be blessed to receive a sharing from our history team on the work they have been doing, and we will learn some great nicknames for our church.  I invite you to thank the history team of Judy Kastrop, Norma Smith, and Cindy King.  Please consider ordering a copy of the history, so you can see where we have been and imagine where we might be going.  We are not the same congregation that founded the church in 1986, and part of Methodist faith reminds us that those who went before us are supporting us with their loving actions even now.  
 
Where is God calling us to go in the next 33 years as a Christian community? We have retirement communities surrounding us, young professionals and families moving in to the south and west of us.  As we celebrate our birthday I want to invite us to come together, to pray, and to collaborate with our God on what ministry of generosity and love might Shiloh United Methodist Church be asked to faithfully step out on next.  
 
Happy Birthday to you,
 
Pastor Tyler
 
 
Our study series for January will be focused on Finding Joy In Real Life, we will explore 5 biblically based principles that remind us how living the Christian life can bring true joy and abundant life.  Click to watch the intro video.
 
Noisy offering continues to raise funds for our children and youth ministry.  Thank you for your faithfulness.  We took our offering last Sunday, and we will do it again on February 17, always the 3rd Sunday of the month.  Here are a few pics of our youth as well as First UMC and Evangelical UMC enjoying banned game night.

Pastor’s Corner – Sunday, January 20, 2019

Click here to watch a video invite to prepare us for worship.
Light is a such an important part of our faith and I love our church building for how much natural light it allows in.  Light helps us to see clearly, it is an image of God brining clarity, and opening insight for new direction in our life. Sometimes it can be good to also sit in darkness to know what we are accepting when we allow light into our lives. My hope is this current sermon series allows us time to see where God has shown light for how to live as Christians, but also gives us a glimpse of why we are called to accept the light and walk out of darkness.
 
In the theme of light I also want to lift up our Trustees work of replacing all of our lighting with LEDs.  They have been working hard this year to complete this work and I am proud as your Pastor to announce that our Trustees have accomplished this goal.  This is good news for a few reasons:  1. Our building and parking lot are well lit at night, and our space is bright.  2. We are saving costs on electricity.  3. We are being good stewards of our resources. If you see one of our trustees around, tell them thanks for the light, Tobie Stapleton, Ed Heidrich, Buddy Kastrop, Chris Munson, or Kent Thompson.  
 
As we continue to learn these 5 practices to experience joy in real life, I hope you find ways to live them out in your life. Jesus calls us to forgive, be forgiven and experience connection with our God.  May you feel this grace in your life.  
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

The Trustees have been working hard to replace our traditional lighting with LED lighting.  The entire church is now LED lighting.  Thanks to Tobie, Ed, Buddy for your work moving chairs and vacuuming our sanctuary in the process.  We are working hard at Shiloh to be better stewards of your resources through energy and cost saving LEDs we are taking a forward step.

FREE STORE STATISTICS– 2018 was a very busy year for the Free Store.  1,412 family visits happened, but even more amazing was that on seven different Saturdays, 70+ families visited.  The only other time we had 70+ was in 2013 and that was only once.  Even more telling is our average number served per Saturday was 53 in 2017 and 56 in 2018.
This mission continues to make such a difference. However without your support of time and/or donations (goods or money) many in our community would be living with oot what the resources the Free Store provides. THANK YOU. Co-directors: Dale Francetich and Peg Parker.

SHILOH’S PRAYER GROUP – Shiloh has a prayer team that meets every Tuesday morning at 11:00 am and we are done by noon.  This is a very small group of dedicated people who have been called to pray for the needs of the church as well as pray for all other requests for prayer.  The prayer team is not a replacement for each person’s responsibility to pray.  However it is an intermediary, going before the throne of God on behalf of others.  Everyone is welcomed to join us.  You do not need to come every week.  “…for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”  Isaiah 56:7
