Goal

To nurture and support families and individuals who are grieving the loss of a loved one and those who are sick and shut-in.

 

Objective  - Is to demonstrate love for one another through practical means and support.

 

The Congregational Care Ministry is to love and support families and individuals who are grieving the loss of a loved one; establish a process by service either temporarily or permanently. It has as primary foci class instruction for new members, hospital and home visitation, providing a letter of correspondence to visitors who attend our worship service, prayer or bible studies. Congregational Care also provides communion, taped sermons, prayer and bible study to the sick and shut-in and make them feel loved and a part of the larger congregation.  Our Deacon, Deaconess and Missionary Ministries actively serve in this capacity.

 

Congregational Liaison Ministry

MISSION:  The Congregational Liaisons endeavor to support the ideas listed below: Unity is important because (1) it makes the church a positive example to the world and helps draw others to us; (2) it helps us cooperate as a body of believers as God meant us to, giving us a foretaste of heaven; (3) it renews and revitalizes ministry because there is less tension to sap our energy. Living in unity does not mean that we will agree on everything; there will be many opinions just as there are many notes in a musical chord, but we must agree on our purpose in life-to work together for God. Our outward expression of unity will reflect our inward unity of purpose. (NIV) 

 

GOAL: To serve the congregation by presenting concerns, issues, questions, etc., to the appropriate body that make the decisions about the matter and facilitating a timely response and resolution to the concern.

 

OBJECTIVES: To serve as liaison between the congregation and the Executive Committee, Joint Board and Church Council to ensure that the concerns, ideas and issues of the congregation are brought to the appropriate meeting and are heard; to provide groups, organizations or individuals that have concerns, ideas, questions, or an angst about something within the Church that they feel compelled to express, with a voice through which the idea is expressed in a formal meeting.

Shiloh Baptist Church Senior Usher Board Ministry

Motto “If every usher was just like Jesus what this usher board would be?”
 

Ushers are one of the first contacts with new comers; therefore, we must welcome worshipers to the Lord’s house with a warm and friendly smile. In us, the hospitality of GOD should be seen. Our role is important because it is the Lord we serve. Moreover, our mission is to usher the worshippers into the sanctuary with a spirit of humility and love. We celebrate the opportunity to serve as abiding servants who adopt psalm 84:10: “I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my god, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. “ In the ushers ministry it is our privilege to serve the body wherever the need arises. We are looking for people with a heart of service. It is our mission to offer support to our Pastor and members so they can focus on prayer and teaching of the Word. If you feel led and have a desire to serve the Lord through greeting others and supporting the pastoral staff we would welcome you to this ministry. Please contact Timothy Jamison through the Church office for any further information. The Ushers meeting are every 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM.

Shiloh Baptist Church Senior Ushers Ministry

Shiloh Baptist Church Junior Ushers Ministry

Seniors Ministry

Co-Chairs -  Phillistine Chester and Audrey Willis

This Ministry was established for the Senior members of Shiloh Baptist Church to foster and promote activities for their interests.  An early fun project was the making of a religious quilt for Pastor Armstrong, containing our favorite Bible verses.  Our Community outreach extends to Spring and Fall donations of personal products to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen.  In addition, we as a ministry donate toys for Shiloh’s community Christmas party.  Books and toys have also been given to the Trenton Preservation House.  Current pertinent senior issues, legal, social security, and health information are provided by speakers and seminars throughout the year.

 

The dinner theatre production of a play “Willa Mae’s Last Will and Testament” was a crowning success, due to the splendid talent of our seniors.  Another play is on the way!

 

The Seniors also enjoy trips several times during the year to theaters in nearby areas, which afford members an afternoon of fellowship, lunch, and entertainment.  Our annual Christmas Luncheon is well attended, which makes for a great social occasion.
