Pastor’s Corner for Sunday, April 7, 2019

Click here to watch a video to prepare your heart and mind for worship.
People of Shiloh,
I am pleased to announce, Judy Frank has been hired as our Full Time Accompanist and Chime Choir Director. Judy has been a part of our congregation for a while and in the music role, but this new role will allow her to be a part of a music team to support worship planning.  Dave Merkel(Choir Director), Judy and me get together regularly and have begun to shape and plan worship music together.  Our hope is that through prayer and our collective knowledge, Judy and Dave have better knowledge, that we can help shape a growing music program at Shiloh.  
If you are interested in joining or offering music in any way, please let me, Dave or Judy know. We would love to see our music ministry grow to help us offer meaningful worship, that is rooted deeply in melodies that connects us to God.  
Please join me in welcoming Judy Frank to  this new role.  
On another note, I want to invite you to start planning your Holy Week, it is an important week to ground your faith.  We will be handing out passports that allow us to connect to all the Methodist Holy Week Services in Billings, we thought it would be a fun way to encourage you to experience Holy Week.  I have chosen to not have Holy Week services this year at Shiloh, and to encourage us to take part in the other church’s services.  I will be helping specifically with Maundy Thursday at Evangelical United Methodist.  I prayerfully decided this for two reasons: 1. We do an Easter Egg Hunt that takes most of our energy that week.  2.  Why do a service with half energy, when we can partner with brothers and sisters in Christ to do deeply grounded service.  I encourage you to pick your services during Holy Week and to try to attend at least one extra event that week.  
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Tyler          #loveBillings

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.

Newsletter – April 2019

In April we hope you will gather with us as we complete our growing through Lent and celebrate Easter.  We will be studying how to have courage in challenging times in our world and experiencing the hope that God overcomes even the challenge of death.  Following the Christian journey can be hard, and so we invite you to do it together by learning skills to help you along the way.  
After Easter we will be examining how the scriptures about the early Christians call us to reclaim the name neighbor in our world today.  Join us this April.
