What's Happening Now
If anyone would like to share historic photographs of events at Shiloh Church, please put them in an envelope (with your name on it) and place it in Mark Barnhill's mailbox in the Information Gallery. Mark will scan them and return them to your mailbox. Thank You!
May is for Mixes! Satisfy someone's sweet tooth in May. Fill the food pantry red wagon with Mixes. Cake mix, cornbread mix, waffle mix and brownie mix. These are favorite items that go quickly off the shelves. Icing and syrup to go with the mixes to top off a sweet treat are also perfect donations.
GROWTH OPPORTUNITY. Saturday, June 3 - Pride Festival & Parade 2023 in Downtown Dayton. The Pride Parade starts at 12 noon at Cooper park by the main library and ends at Courthouse Square. Shiloh will participate in the parade with a vehicle and marchers, complete with a banner and flags. After the parade, Shiloh will host a booth at the Pride Festival at Courthouse Square providing giveaways, handouts and we will have the opportunity to talk with visitors about Shiloh's services and mission. We need volunteers to march (or ride) in the parade and work the booth at the festival. Sign-up sheets are on the green table in the Narthex.
Thinking of becoming a New Member? By attending our worship services, joining us for fellowship, or participating in any of our programs, you’ve already started your journey to becoming a part of our church family. We respect each individual’s spiritual journey and try to live into the United Church of Christ’s motto: “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!” Attend a new member orientation where we share a bit about ourselves, Shiloh Church and the United Church of Christ. Attending a New Member orientation meeting does not obligate you to become a member of the church. Our next orientation is Sunday, June 4 at 12 noon in Omega Hall. Our New Member Sunday is June 11 during all of our services. Signup sheet is on the green table. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
