What's Happening Now

Join us for an adult mission trip to Back Bay Mission in Biloxi, Mississippi, from June 13-21. Back Bay is an ongoing UCC program that works with homeless and underserved people along the Gulf Coast. Those participating will work on supportive housing for Back Bay clients. If interested, please sign the list on the green table or call Sue Cox at 836-4155. 

We Filled an Ark!
Thanks to Shiloh’s generosity, the Heifer International Living Gift Market raised the funds for an “ark” of animals ranging from water buffalo, llamas and camels to rabbits, chickens, and guinea pigs for needy people at home and abroad. Once again, Shiloh is making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Who could ask for a better Christmas gift? Many thanks!

Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching, and Shiloh is once again collecting funds to restock the FISH food pantry after the holidays. Please mark FISH on your contributions and place them in the offering plate. February 2 we will celebrate a “Souper Bowl” day by purchasing the needed food with these funds. A super thanks to you!

Join us in for our Chili Cook-off January 19 at our Fellowship luncheon.
We need 4 people who would like to compete for our chili cook-off.
Must provide an 18-qt roaster of chili; we can make roasters available.
Limited to 4 participants in order to be able to taste all chili offerings.

If you would like to compete, please contact someone from the Fun Raising group: Janet Ferguson, Roger Smith, Lisa Neff, Patty Farinet or Dawn McMillen.  See sign-up sheet on green table in the Narthex. We need your commitment by January 13 in order to prepare ballots. Please plan on joining us January 19 for the Chili Cook –off. 

Shiloh is collecting items for the House of Bread. Most-needed items are heavy socks, heavy gloves (especially adult sizes), blankets, warm hats, sweatshirts and gently used coats in extra-large sizes, Chap Stick, and Vaseline. Please place your donations under the trees in the narthex any time during Advent to share Christmas with those less fortunate.

Once again we ask you, our congregation, to share your talents by volunteering to help the children of our adopted school, Valerie Elementary. If you’re able to spend an hour a week to TUTOR a child with math or reading, please think about sharing that skill. If you are unable to make a weekly commitment, perhaps you can HELP AT ONE-TIME EVENTS like judging the Science Fair or helping sell books at the Book Fair. SIGN UP on the clipboard on the narthex Green Table to give your gift of time to help a child become successful, then Nancy Nerny, will contact you with further information.
