Shiloh UMC is more than just a church - we are a community of believers who are committed to supporting one another in our faith journey. We welcome people from all walks of life and strive to create an environment that is inclusive and welcoming. Whether you are looking for a place to worship, a community of friends, or a way to serve others, we invite you to join us at Shiloh UMC.
WHAT WE DO
As a church community, we are committed to making a difference in the world by serving others. We offer a variety of programs and ministries that are designed to meet the needs of both our members and the wider community. These include worship services, Bible studies, youth programs, community outreach initiatives, and much more. We believe that by serving others, we are fulfilling God's call to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Shiloh United Methodist church is a gathering of people bound together by their common faith in Jesus Christ. As God’s people, we gather together regularly for worship, education and fellowship. We are nurturing each other in the faith, and seek together to manifest the gospel of Jesus Christ in our daily lives.
Having experienced firsthand the redeeming love of Jesus Christ, we feel compelled to share that love with others. This love is manifested in caring and sharing with other people. Because we are but one corner of God’s vineyard, we are called to consistently reach beyond ourselves. This calling takes us into our community and into the broader world in witness and in service. We believe that we are all ministers of Christ’s gospel.
Therefore, we encourage and expect our people to become personally involved in the work of ministry. Such ministry can happen in many simple ways, but no ministry done in the name of Christ is insignificant.
Our Mission Statement
On January 20, 1869, a number of members of the United Brethren in Christ unanimously resolved that those attending this meeting and others form themselves into a religious or Christian affiliation to be styled “The Trustees of Shiloh Church of the United Brethren in Christ.”
Shortly thereafter, they met again to plan for the construction of a church building. One acre of land was bought from Samuel and Catherine Hoover at a cost of $150.00 The church was built in 1869 and dedicated February 13, 1870 by Bishop Weaver. The total cost of the structure was $2,917.24.
The first major improvement to the original building was the addition of a tower with a bell in 1922. In 1939, an addition for educational and social purposes was added. In 1952, a modern kitchen was added and in 1956, another addition comprised of divided classrooms was made. In 1968, a vestibule and new bell tower were added.
Because of the merger of two denominations, in November 1946 the church became Evangelical United Brethren. And in 1968, a merger with the Methodist denomination created the current Shiloh United Methodist Church.
