Teams & Committees

Be enthusiastic to serve the Lord, keeping your passion toward Him boiling hot!  Radiate with the glow of the Holy Spirit and let Him fill you with excitement as you serve Him.

Romans 12:11 TPT

Being a member of Shiloh means more than being a part of a social group, it means living your life for Christ in community with other believers.  It requires us to serve the Lord by serving one another.  We are a church that is saved to serve, and we are called upon to serve with great enthusiasm and joy.  Therefore, we invite you to find your place to serve.  We know that you will not be fulfilled until you are connected in meaningful ways doing the very thing that God designed you to do for the sake of the kingdom.  Take this opportunity to prayerfully consider how you can begin serving God and making a difference in the kingdom today.
