Pastor Lisa’s Corner

October 6th, 2014

It is hard to believe that summer is gone and fall is here. With fall comes the time we look at the stewardship of our prayer, presence, gifts, service and witness.

Starting with prayer; I ask you to join me in praying about the future of Shiloh Church and how we each play a part in this. Please know that your presence is needed and appreciated. We are better together.

All of us have been given gifts and abilities to serve by God to share in community, material gifts, talents and spiritual gifts.  I Corinthians 12:4-7 says, There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.  There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord.  God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.  A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.”  To be all that God wants us to be we must combine our gifts and talents. We need each other.

Christ says in John 13, Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.  Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” Shiloh Church is the most caring congregation I have served.  Love within the congregation that reaches out into the community is our witness to Christ.

Back to prayer. The Committee on Lay Leadership (CLL) will be meeting October 5 to nominate folks for positions on committees, ministries and teams. Pray for the CLL to be guided by the Holy Spirit. Pray about your participation in the ministries of the church. My desire is to see everyone involved somewhere in the life of the church.

God has brought us all together for a purpose, together we can discern and live into the plans God has for us in this time and place.

Blessings!
Pastor Lisa

 

Christmas Ministries & Projects

October 6th, 2014

Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes—Since 1993 Samaritan’s Purse has distributed over 113 million shoebox gifts in Jesuimage-thumb.pngs’ name  to children around the  world, and Shiloh has been involved just about that long.  Last year 37,439 were collected in the Louisville area.  It’s fun to see what you can put into a shoebox to delight a child.  Brochures will be available in October to help you shop. Collection day at church is November 16.

 

 

Christmas Stocking Project—We sew and decorate stockings for children of prisoners in Kentucky and Indiana.  There is a goal of 1image-thumb.png0,000 stockings, and handmade are preferred over store-bought so a little love goes into them. Through donations, the stockings are filled with edible goodies and small toys, hygiene items, Bibles, etc.  This is the only way prisoners can give something to their children, and in some cases, these are the only gifts a child may receive.  Felt stockings are easiest to decorate, and we have a family stocking night is set for Nov. 7.  

Shiloh Wellness

October 6th, 2014

clip-image002-thumb.jpgSome days it seems like everyone is jumping on the fitness “bandwagon”. Recently there was a Facebook share on John Wesley’s views on health and fitness. It seems that he was ahead of his time with some of his ideas on staying healthy.
In 1747 Wesley wrote a best seller, “Primitive Physick: or An Easy and Natural Method of Curing Most Disease”.  Wesley diet and exercise tips include:

  •      Eat a light supper at least 2-3 hours before bed.
  •      Drink lots of water, it is the healthiest of all drinks.
  •      Avoid coffee and tea, they elevate anxiety.
  •      Exercise, preferably walking, is necessary for good health.
  •      Go to bed at 9 pm and rise at 4 or 5 am.
  •      Cold baths promote circulation (that one I wouldn’t try).

In summary, John Wesley advised, “Those who read or write much, should learn to do so standing; otherwise it will impair their health”.
***Also, the Big Four walk is scheduled for October 11, meeting at Prospect Kroger at 9 am to carpool.

Ironman Weekend Ministry

October 6th, 2014

Picture1Ironman weekend was an exciting time of ministry. The Saturday night worship in song and testimony was uplifting. The ministry together on Sunday was meaningful and fun.  One of the contestants was injured near Shiloh and brought by EMS to us.  Below you will find a note from her that speaks to why we do what we do Ironman weekend.

 

I wanted to send my sincere gratitude to Pastor Lisa and especially Jim and Kathy.  I was the IM racer that spent an hour or so with you on Sunday morning after hurting my foot during the race and being dropped off by EMS at the church.   Jim’s excellent support, especially in helping my family get to the church to reach me and directing us to urgent care; Kathy’s kindness, especially the ice and water and many offers of other food and drink; and the Pastor’s prayer support, made a disappointing day for me a little easier to swallow.  This ministry that your church provides to IM Louisville is very special and I can’t tell you how much care and love I felt in your presence.  Please pass along my thanks to everyone that was out there this morning. 

God bless you all.

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.
