“Your” Next Door Neighbor program

August 18th, 2014

clip_image002.jpgThis program is more than filling a diapering need in our community.  It is truly about letting these families know they are loved.  This is one way we are the body of Christ.  Weekly we meet mothers, grandmothers and fathers who are truly grateful that we can help to meet their needs.   One of the 25 plus families we see on a regular basis is a retired grandfather.  One very excited afternoon they greeted their daughter with her newborn child.  The next morning they found their daughter gone and the baby in their care.  Their granddaughter is now 2 and he never fails to say how much he appreciates the extra help we give him by what we do.  If you have time to give please come help us and meet some of these families.

 

Ironman Cometh, and right soon!

August 18th, 2014

21+IM+bannerThe Louisville Ironman competition for 2014 will be Sunday, August 24th.  The bicycle portion of this competition will pass Shiloh Church 3 times.  Once as they turn south on HWY 1694, once as they turn from HWY 1694 to east US 42, and the third time as they head back toward Louisville and the marathon section.  Shiloh Church’s parking lot is a great location to see these athletes and cheer them toward their goal.

Because of all the bicycle traffic, Shiloh will be having our worship service on Saturday night, August 23rd, starting at 6:00 pm.  We will be having an ice cream and desert fellowship afterward.

On Sunday morning, we will continue our tradition of having a free pancake breakfast for Ironman volunteers, public safety, state highway, assigned to the intersection as well as spectators wishing to view the race from the church parking lot.  This breakfast will start at 8:00 am.

Come join us and enjoy the race.

Pastor Lisa’s Corner

August 18th, 2014

Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy…andfromthepastor I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:3-4, & 6 NLT)

Don and I are so thankful to be part of the Shiloh Church family. Your welcome has been so wonderful that we echo Paul’s prayer for the church at Philippi, giving thanks for you with joy! We look forward to visiting with each family in the coming months. We want to get to know you and hear your hopes and dreams for Shiloh.

I want to share a little with you about us here at the start and then we will go deeper in relationship in the time to come. We have been married 33 years come August. Our oldest child, Aaron, and his wife, Emily, live in Covington, KY. They have been married a little over a year. Sarah, our daughter, and her husband, Brandon, live in Louisville with their daughter, Allie. Sarah is pregnant with baby Elijah, who will join us in the beginning of October. Brandon is an associate pastor at St Matthews UMC.

Don is retired from 30+ years as a social worker. He is a licensed clinical social worker, and spent the last years of his career in private practice working in marriage and family counseling. Don has always loved working with children and teens, so he will be helping me with the youth ministry. We have been a team in ministry from early on in our marriage.

I am beginning my 16th year in full time ministry. I am passionate about leading the church to “be” the church: disciples following Jesus out into the world to “Share the love of God everywhere we go.” I am committed to the church being the place where ALL are welcome. We are called to love God with all of our being and to love our neighbors as ourselves. The Holy Spirit is the One who transforms us. We cannot fix ourselves or each other, but when we come together to worship, and experience the presence of God, we are transformed along with our community.

I am excited about being appointed as your pastor and look forward to being in ministry with you in this community!

 

Blessings!

Pastor Lisa

 

Annual Conference 2014 Report Summary

August 18th, 2014

Fellowship, worship, teaching moments and celebration were the hallmarks of the 2014 Kentucky Annual Conference session, held June 9-11 at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, Kentucky.

 

The theme of the 2014 Kentucky Annual Conference was “Reach the World, Equipping Servant Leaders.”

 

Bishop Davis and the cabinet issued a call for the churches of the conference to receive a special mission offing to benefit two ministries that are dear to the Kentucky Conference.  The congregations collected over $112,000, which will be divided between the Red Bird Missionary Conference and Blessing Home, a ministry of the Life Center United Methodist Church, in partnership with the Thailand Methodist Mission.  Blessing Home is a ministry through missionaries Mike and Sherri Morrissey, who are clergy members from the Kentucky Annual Conference.

 

During our time together, we had over 700 United Methodists participate at more than 25 service sites throughout northern Kentucky during our Afternoon of Service.  Projects ranged from visiting retirement homes to landscaping, delivering and serving food, and prayer walks throughout Covington.

 

Conference also passed a resolution to decrease the number of districts from twelve to nine.  The decrease in districts will be effective July 1, 2015.

 

The 2015 budget was voted on and approved at $7.9 million, decreasing the anticipated level of funding by $1.2 million.
