Invitation to Holy Humor Sunday

Pastor’s Corner – 

Holy Humor is happening Sunday at Shiloh!   This is our day of joy and of being silly as we recognize the ultimate last laugh Jesus had over death when he was resurrected.  This tradition comes from the early church as a Sunday of jokes and laughs to remind people of the joy of God in their lives.  We also hope it is something new as you find time to engage your humor side, the side that gives us hope and release from the hard parts of life.  Part of being Christian is recognizing that God in Christ learned to appreciate a good belly laugh to help deal with stressful times, just like we do.    
Holy Humor Sunday is about the resurrection of Jesus and resurrections in our own lives that take us by surprise, lead us to new life, and help us to laugh.  One time another pastor and I were talking with a group of youth and a question was raised, “What if someone faked the resurrection?”  To which my friend replied, “It worked didn’t it.”  Here we are today celebrating resurrection because it worked.  It invited a group of people into a new life of sharing God’s love with everyone they encountered. 
Next week we will be diving into a new worship series call Broken that is focused on where God walks with us through the challenging parts of our lives.  As always, I want to remind folks you can watch our services live or listen to sermons later by going to www.ShilohBIllings.Church
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

406 YOUTH UNITED Sunday at 6:00 pm – Devotions and Games Inside, Creation Care project set when it finally warms up.
FAITH & FILM The movie tonight, at 5:30 pm, is “A United Kingdom”.  The movie is based on extraordinary true events happening in Botswana, Africa.  In 1947 Seretse Khama, the king of Botswana, meets Ruth Williams, a London office worker.  They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but also by their governments.  The idea of a biracial couple ruling a country was intolerable.  Bring a friend, a snack or just yourself and, as always, we will have a discussion after the movie.  Run time: 111 minutes.  Release date 2017. Rating: NR.  
SHILOH PRAYERS – Tuesday, April 10, we will be holding a prayer group where we will remember all the people that were lifted up in prayer the previous Sunday.  We will meet at 11:30 am every Tuesday in the sanctuary and share prayer together.
RELAY FOR LIFE TEAMThe Relay for Life Team will be selling donuts and bagels this morning after both services. 
CON SPIRITO CONCERTJennine Budge would like to invite you to a Con Spirito Concert on Saturday, April 28 at 7:00 pm or Sunday, April 29 at 3:00 pm at St. Pius X Church at 18th and Broadwater. 
BROKEN – In April and May we will begin a journey through a sermon series called Broken. This series will explore broken places in our world.  We are going to seek how others have found hope amidst those challenges. We are not just seeking hope that brings ecstatic joy, but the tempered joy of knowing God.  To help make this series something you are part of creating too, we would like to invite you to bring something you own that was broken and you have fixed or repurposed.  We may use this in slides, video or for the altar.
SMALL GROUP PRAYER AND STUDYStarting Tuesday, April 17, Pastor Tyler will be leading a small group study to accompany the Broken sermon series.  The group will practice prayer, share in conversation, and end with a love feast each time.  It will be offered twice each Tuesday at 12:00 pm and 5:30 pm from April 17 – May 22.  The book we will be using is Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I’ve Loved by Kate Bowler.  If you need a copy of this book, let the office know by April 11th and we will order the books.  This book tackles the topics of faith couched in the question “Why do bad things happen?”  Please contact Pastor Tyler or the office to sign up for a group.  
CAMP CREATE – This one day workshop is an opportunity for adults to enjoy creativity in an environment of spirited exploration.  No previous experience is required… just a curious mind, playful nature and eager soul.  Class size is limited to 15, so sign up early.  The class is free of charge and includes a light lunch. The class is on Saturday, April 14, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at Shiloh UMC.  To register contact Shiloh UMC at 406-656-0050.
It includes: 

  • Creating Journals & Photo Quilts
  • Stamp carving and Printmaking
  • Sculpture of All Types

SHILOH COMMUNITY GARDEN – We have a community garden.  Anyone can rent a plot for $50.00.  Please contact the office if you are interested.  We will be holding a meeting on April 19 at 6:30 pm for anyone interested in the garden and especially if you can help with the main plot that we use to raise food for local food banks. 
EASTER EGG  HUNT – The success of our first ever community Easter egg event can be measured many ways:  by the 342 registered children and accompanying adults that attended, by the very flexible parents who understood the situation, or perhaps by the number of “newbies” who may attend service at Shiloh for the first time after Saturday.  However, the most important measure for me is the support given by the people of Shiloh UMC, whether donating eggs/candy, serving on the committee responsible for the planning and preparation of the activities, being one of the 40 + volunteers who came Saturday for two very busy hours.  Each of you is so appreciated.  Thank you.  Peg Parker, Chair of the Children and Youth Ministries Committee.
