FAITH BY NUMBERS “CHOOSE YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE” ─FALL 2019 SERMON SERIES This fall we will be placing scripture alongside the life of John Wesley who founded the Methodist movement. We invite each person in the church to learn that faith changes and practices grow throughout our lives, and you can choose how you want to draw your own masterpiece of your life with God alongside you. The series will carry us through the end of October.

Join us for Worship Sunday mornings
8am and 10:15am
 
Nursery provided during worship for children whose parents want to use it.
 
Worship at Shiloh UMC is relaxed, all ages are welcome, and yes we love when kids make noise. Music is considered to be both traditional and modern. The entirety of each worship service is designed to support a common theme or message, with a sermon that is meant to challenge and inspire worshipers. If you miss any of our weekly messages, you can listen to our sermon online, catch them on our app, or subscribe on Itunes by clicking here.
 
Through worship we seek to discover and realize God’s divine presence in our daily living reality. We believe that it is in community, such as worship, that we most effectively learn together how to live in ways that are more loving, more peace-filled, and how we can be more effective mirrors of the light of Christ in our world.
 
The 8am worship is a more intimate setting with a message right up front to help people connect with God and then go out into their day.  We practice communion at this service by gathering together in the front of the church.
 
The 10:15am worship is a traditional worship order, meaning we own that we sing some hymns that are older, we work to practice the traditions of Christianity, and know that in the modern day we want to keep this service to 1 hour.

user Communion is a Feast of Love at a Common Table
 
We celebrate Holy Communion at every Sunday morning worship and encourage our small groups to celebrate a Love Feast.
 
At Shiloh UMC our Communion table is open to anyone who seeks to respond to Christ’s love and seeks to lead a new life of peace and love. As The United Methodist Book of Worship states, “All who intend to lead a Christian life, together with their children, are invited to receive the bread and cup. We have no tradition of refusing any who present themselves desiring to receive” (page 29). This statement means that in practice there are few, if any, circumstances in which a United Methodist pastor would refuse to serve the elements of Holy Communion to a person who comes forward to receive. It is the Lord’s Supper, not ours, and it is Christ who invites you. As our ritual puts it: “Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another.” Whether or not you should receive Communion with us is between you and God.
