Worship Corner for September 10


People of Shiloh,


Over the last two weeks you have met Mr. Worship.  It was fun to have a guest to get excited about the upcoming worship we will have this fall at Shiloh.  If you want to catch one last engagement of Mr. Worship, I would encourage you to watch worship online this weekend, or check out our Facebook or Youtube channel.  I want to say a special thank you to Mr. Worship and take this opportunity to invite you to consider a worship option that will help you grow your faith this year.  Whatever option you pick, feel free to reach out to the office 656-0050 or email me at and let us know what you are hoping to do.


I invite you to join us for worship in a way that works for your life, choose an online or in-person option:

 In Person 

We call our in person experience “community worship.”  It is a time for 15 or less people to gather in our worship space.  All people are asked to sign up in advance.  Each group is physically distanced and all people are asked to wear masks.  The group receives a bulletin with the instructions for worship and a leader guide the group through the worship.  


There is prayer, scripture, and a message from our pastor in each of these worship experiences.  


There are two in-person options to sign up for:  


1.   If you are a weekly attender and want to commit being present each week.  


Please contact the office to signup for one of the following worship times:  Sunday 8am, 10:30am, Noon, or Wednesday 4pm


2.   If you are new or know you can’t make it every week these services are for you.  These two are also our children friendly option.


Sundays and Wednesdays at 6pm.  (All participants must signup in advance.)

To sign up for these two services go to and signup for a worship service in the coming week.  If you signup, please plan on coming as we only have limited space.



Each week we work to offer an online worship experience.  Our primary expression of this is our live online experience on Sunday Morning at 10:30am. There will be music, scripture, a message, prayer, and more.  We hope you will join us in your pjs, outside or wherever your device allows you to center together with God. 


I will be broadcasting live from the church and you can connect by sending prayers, questions and connection to (406)794-3055.  


We pray you find a way to join us for worship this fall.


Enthusiastic Peace,


Pastor Tyler 

(AKA Mr. Worship)

And a special thanks to Terry and Pat Montgomery who helped giving fresh veggies from their garden to anyone who wanted some, and thanks to Jerry Stanhope who helped collect all the food for the Food Bank and took it down to them on the next Monday. The Food Bank was very appreciative of all the food that we donated this summer.   


So, no one told you life was going to be this way?  Join us as we study the enigmatic stories of the first century rabbi named Jesus.  The stories he told transform our thinking and call us to remember that God loves all people, in ways sometimes even we forget.  In this 7 week series you will hear old stories and receive the new lesson that will help you transform your life.
We continue to monitor the situation as Montana opens in phases. Because we are committed to the health and safety of all, especially our most vulnerable of God’s children.  In Fall of 2020 we will be shifting to a model of community worship and online hybrid worship.  Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
