November 5, 2017 – Generosity Corner

A message from our Pastor – 

Each week during our season of Generosity you will receive an email message from one of our congregation.  We are asking people to share what helps them find their practice of giving at Shiloh UMC.  We will be hearing from longtime givers, and people who are new to committed giving.  I hope you join me in reading their messages and praying over the inspirations we receive from them.

Also, each week we will be invited to look for and easter egg somewhere on our shilohbillings.church website.  It will move each week and this weeks is already out there.  When you find the egg, email the location of the egg and your name to PastorTyler@ShilohBillings.Church.  If you are the first person you will receive a gift supporting your practice of generosity from our Finance and Stewardship team.  (Egg Picture is on website somewhere).

Join us for this journey of generosity,

Pastor Tyler

GENEROSITY CORNER

Our commitment to giving to the church started long before involvement with Shiloh. 
Having been blessed to be raised in Christian families, it was a given that we would be giving.  Buddy’s family had always been regular tithers, while my family gave throughout the year, helped for immediate needs and gave year end to our home church and other churches that needed a helping hand. Signing a pledge card was new to me, but Buddy convinced me that the church needed to have a budget and without an estimate of income, it would be an impossible task to plan for even a year ahead. We decided to give a certain amount that we felt we could handle. Time passed and as we were blessed we added to our gift to our church. 
Being charter members, Shiloh is near and dear to our hearts.  We have seen this church through good and lean years.  Each passing year brings its own ups and downs, but Shiloh has life of its own and I have always contended Shiloh has “good bones”.
We would urge everyone to at least committing to a pledge at whatever level you are comfortable with. 
Strange as it may seem, the more you give, the more you have to give.  It seems the Lord rewards good stewardship. 

Prayers and good thoughts for Shiloh and our minister, Pastor Tyler.

Worship on Sunday – Practicing Extravagant Generosity “Ministry Flows From the Heart”
Video – https://www.facebook.com/shilohbillings.church/videos/1771670642855073/
 
In November we are inviting our congregation to engage in a “Season of Generosity.” Our sermon series and congregational study focuses on “Practicing Extravagant Generosity” and is based on a book by Robert Schnase. This season becomes a time for members and friends of Shiloh to seek how to use their resources to do God’s work in the world. We encourage everyone to take time to find spiritual practices that help you to recognize where God has given you blessings in your life and how you might share those blessings.

Worship begins at 8:00 am and 10:15 am on Sunday and childcare is provided. 

Reminders for the Shiloh Community

Seasonal Offering – Lunch and Learn: Demystifying Dementia

November 8, at noon.  Highgate senior living is going to partner with us to bring a program called Lunch & Learn: Demystifying Dementia to our congregation, a free lunch will be included.  We will be learning about what dementia is like for people, the warning signs, and what care is needed for people facing this illness.

 

 Seasonal Offering – Smart Money Event


Many of you are familiar with Dave Ramsey and his life-changing class, Financial Peace University.  Millions of people have found the freedom that getting out of debt can bring to their lives. Whether it’s credit cards, student loans, or even your mortgage, being free of debt gives you the opportunity to give more of your time and your talents than you ever have before.  Our church wants that type of financial peace for all of you. So we’re planning something special here on the evening of
November 7 at 6pm.
 
 
That evening, you’re welcome to join us right here at the church as we host a live stream of one of Dave’s events, Smart Money.  He’s going to be joined by his daughter, Rachel Cruze, and they are going to walk you through the steps you need to take to get a clear vision for your family’s financial future.  The best part? It’s completely free for you to come!  This three-hour event is going to lay out a seven-step proven plan for getting you and your family out of debt, and on track to live and give like you never have before.  So go ahead and mark your calendars and plan to join us on Tuesday, November 7 at 6pm.  


Messy Church starts at 5:15 pm on Monday and begins with a light meal, followed with a story, discussion and lots of crafts.

Choir practice starts at 9:00 on Sunday. 

“Animate” (Adult Bible Study) will be held at 9:00 am in the Education Wing.  This is an
multi-media class that focuses on seven aspects of faith: God,
Religion, Jesus, Salvation, the Cross, the Bible and the Church. 

 

The Caregivers Support Group meets Tuesday at 1:30 pm.


“God’s Hunger” will continue at 11:30 am on Wednesday, this time of prayer and contemplative reflection is for all people.  We meet for 30 minutes and then people can join us for a brown bag lunch afterwards(except when there is a Lunch and Learn).  If you are looking for a moment of silence and focus on God, join us.


Trunk or Treat was a great success we had about 30 volunteers and somewhere between 75-100 people join us from the community.  Thanks to all who came and joined us!

Come join us as we partner with God!
