“Keeping The Faith” Acts 5 contains a debate among the Jewish leaders about what to do with the new Jesus movement. The religious leaders in Jerusalem thought they had ended it with the crucifixion of Jesus. His followers, however, persisted in telling people that Jesus was alive, coming back in glory, and calling on them to place their faith in him now. Some of the leaders wanted to stamp out the Jesus movement violently once and for all. However, Gamaliel counseled, that this wouldn’t work if it was from God. On the other hand, if this movement wasn’t from God, it would die out like others before it. Two thousand years later, the Jesus movement hasn’t died out. There are many predictions it will. These aren’t new. Leaders of rival religions, philosophers, pagan rulers, aggressive atheists and a host of others have crowed over and over that Christianity is dying out. Sometimes the evidence seemed strongly behind the pessimists about the future of the Way. In the Dark Ages, the faith seemed reduced to monastic strongholds, often in inaccessible places like Monte Cassino in Italy, St Catherine’s in the Sinai dessert, and Iona on an island off the coast of Scotland. There dedicated Christians kept the Scriptures, other writings, missions and faith alive until the West was ready for a massive outflowing of faith in the 11th and 12th centuries. The American colonies in the New World had one of those periods when it seemed Christianity would be a mere footnote in the history books. After the faith had been the source of many groups such as the Pilgrims journeying to the Americas, it became quite rare. Only about 4 percent of Americans attended church on the eve of the American Revolution. Then two Great Awakenings spread throughout first the colonies and then the newly formed United States. People flocked back to Jesus, and the nation was re-Christianized in large numbers. By the eve of the Civil War, nearly 35% of Americans were connected to just one of the many denominations of Christians – the Methodists. We are in another of those times with dire predictions of the decline, if not disappearance, of the faith in America. Backed by statistics of declining church attendance, dark enough to cause wringing of hands among church leaders and academics, we are assured that many of the younger generations are not interested in church, God or Jesus. Perhaps we are entering a new Dark Age for Christians in the West? Perhaps it is more a winnowing out of the pew sitters, motivated by things having nothing to do with faith, than a decline in true believers? Maybe it is the falling away of faith predicted in the end times? Whatever the situation, I am confident in the power of Jesus Christ to change lives and build His kingdom. He has proven the experts wrong since He was a twelve-year-old boy sitting in the Temple. He will surprise many when He comes back riding on the clouds in glory. In the meantime, our job as Christians is to remain faithful to our Lord and our calling. Whether we are popular or not, we must bear the name and witness of Jesus. We must preserve the teaching of the faith and the call to follow him. If we become too much of the world, we will lose the witness that the next generation needs to receive. The danger is not in the fate of an individual church, it is of a lost witness to a generation because we forgot that Jesus told us to be faithful and diligent. Yours In Christ, Pastor Ken D. Hutchens


Finding Our Identity In Christ by Michelle Rose

Who are you? Those three words might seem simple, but they can also lead to an array of answers or even more questions. Identity is something we all struggle with in different ways throughout the various phases of our lives. I am a daughter. I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a musician. Yet all the different roles that we use to define us are not the whole of who we are. Even stating “I am a Christian” can mean several different things depending on your stage of life. I have known Christ since I was a child, though my relationship with Him has grown closer, further, and closer again throughout the years. Ultimately, He is who my identity has always been centered around. I am a child of God, even though I don’t always feel like it. I am a daughter of the King, even when I fall astray or have doubts. “I am chosen, not forsaken, I am who you say I am” are the lyrics to the popular Christian song “Who You Say I Am” by Hillsong. Why do we still struggle so much with knowing who we are, even though Scriptures make it clear to us that we are beloved? I believe that while God is continually shaping us into His image, the different carvings He makes reflect different parts of Him depending on the phase of life we are living. As a mom, I reflect Christ differently than when I was a child. When we wrap our identities around our role as employee, spouse, or parent, it’s easy to lose a sense of who we are when those things change. You can’t control when all of a sudden your office goes bankrupt, and you’re out of a job. Perhaps your spouse was unfaithful, and now you find yourself alone for the first time you can remember. While our current situations reflect portions of God, they are not ultimately who we are. You will never stop being God’s kid. When you go through questions of identity, go back to the simple truth that you were created in God’s image, and He will never stop loving you.


GRATITUDE

Family Focus by Bev Comeaux, Children’s Ministry Coordinator

Can you guess what two of the most powerful words in the English language are? They are, “Thank you!” These two little words can change our attitude, connect us with others, help us feel appreciated, and express our gratitude. Growing up, gathering together to saying “thanks” was a regular part of my family’s daily routine. Every night we sat down to eat dinner together and when we did, we always said grace, joining hands and mumbling the same “God is great, God is good…” blessing before the meal. I’m not sure anybody knew how this particular blessing got chosen; it was just one of those things that seemed to have always been around. When I grew up and had my own family, we said the same prayer. As the children grew, attempting to expand their prayers into speaking from their heart, we encouraged that the one to say grace, give a unique prayer. It was a nice idea, and one that eventually caught on. However, at first, grace became a dreaded event. Sitting down to eat, someone would start in on the argument over whose turn it was to say the grace. And if there wasn’t an argument, there was the waiting. The family waited in awkward, hungry silence, the food on the plates growing cold, while one of the kids said a grace with the deliberateness of a miner combing a bucket of rocks for a piece of gold. Some nights, we still go to our old standby, “God is great, God is good.” It may not be new but it still says thank you… Karl Barth was fond of saying that the basic human response to God is gratitude– not fear and trembling, not guilt and dread, but thanksgiving. “What else can we say to what God gives but to stammer praise?” Barth offered. Offering praise and thanksgiving was at the heart of Israel’s faith and practice. The Psalms are full of songs of praise and thanksgiving for God and God’s creation. They offer recognition that at its heart creation is good– fallen, yes, but fundamentally good– and that its obvious abundance is a direct sign of the goodness of the God who is its Creator. Biblical faith moves from basic awareness of creation’s goodness to thankful stewardship and care of that creation. November is generally thought of as the season of Thanksgiving. At that time, many of us will sit down with family and friends and those around us to share a meal and to give thanks to God for all that we have been given. It’s an intentional time of giving thanks. But Thanksgiving isn’t just a day or a week, it’s a lifetime practice. Writer John Updike believed that when we cultivate and practice the habit of gratitude, the experience of gratitude deepens over the years. Now is a good time to ask: What am I thankful for today? This week? This year? How might I return thanks to God by doing for someone else, my church, my community, or the environment we live in? Now isn’t just a good time to say, “Thank you!” It is the perfect time!

MISCELLANEOUS SHILOH NEWS FOR THE MESSENGER IS DUE NOVEMBER 4TH CHURCH OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED ON NOVEMBER 28TH - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


Trustees Report By Jerry McCrave

By the time you read this it is early October, the leaves around the church are starting to change and my what an eventful year it has been. I want to thank everyone who came out in September for our first ever fall clean up and boy was this a huge success. We managed to get much of the Seibert parsonage cleaned up and fixed up. If you haven’t notice the shed has a brand new coat of paint and stands out brightly. It is no longer a dull mess and there will be more to do in the spring. Over the next several months your trustees will be looking at and prioritizing future projects over the next severel years. If you have any thoughts and/or ideas please send them to trustees@shiloh-umc.org. Finally, from time to time I may require someone with a specific talent or skill set that members of the trustees committee doesn’t have. If you feel inclined please reach out to myself or anyone else on the trustees committe and let them know what skill you have and how you might be willing to help. Thank you

Finance Corner By Craig Wilkes

The Finance Committee is always looking to the future. We will be finalizing the 2020 budget this month, and we will approve our 2020 goals in January. As part of being good financial stewards, we choose to get out in front of expenditures BEFORE they happen. Here is a short list of examples of how we plan: - During the fall stewardship campaign, we ask you to fill out pledge cards for the coming year. This allows us to synchronize our budget with expected income. - Along with the Trustees, we had the chapel building professionally inspected for its longterm viability. Since it was deemed structurally sound, repair costs will not be wasted. - We are paying down our building debt at an accelerated rate. This will free up future funds for a myriad of needs. - We are “saving” extra money each month to a capital expenditures fund to pay for expected life cycle replacement/repairs. For example, we have five 18-year-old expensive HVAC units on the roof. - We have begun discussions of establishing a “Growth Fund” to start saving for acquisition of property or new construction. The goal is to minimize future debt. As the word of God says of planning, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?” - Luke 14:28


Helping Your Teen Deal with Anxiety Excerpt from focusonthefamily.com/parenting

A widespread message our teens receive is that they have to be the best at everything, which leaves them terrified to reveal their inadequacies and insecurities. Instead, they hide behind the best version of themselves — at times a fake, crafted version — which is easy to do in the digital age. Here are a few ideas for helping our teens cope with a pressure-filled world. Set the example. If we want to raise kids who find freedom from the pressure to get it all right in order to be accepted and loved, we need to find freedom from that same pressure to get it all right as parents. We need to beg God to help us trust Him with the children He has entrusted to us. Spend time together. Another way to take the focus off performance is to spend quality time with our children in a way that doesn’t focus on performance issues. Go out for ice cream. Explore nature. Take a road trip. Leave space for relationship with your teen where he has nothing to do but be himself. We want our kids to feel what we ourselves long to feel — safe. Safe to take off their masks and let down their guard. Delight in your child. Praise your teen for her unique personality and character qualities, such as kindness, thoughtfulness or sense of humor. Our teens long for acceptance and unconditional love. Noticing who God has designed your teen to be — and making an intentional and ongoing effort to call that out in her — imparts value and security. Make time for rest. We live in a fast-paced society where activities can easily fill in any margin we have as a family. This causes stress that teens aren’t wired to absorb. The Bible talks a lot about rest — and how it is a gift from God (Matthew 11:28). Honor your child’s need for rest by making downtime a priority. Rest allows your teen to see he has value apart from work. When the internal and external voices whisper the lies “You’re insignificant, You’re not enough and You don’t measure up”, we want our children to know, deep in their souls, that the only One who gets to define them is the One who created them and calls them beloved “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:19


What we've been up to!

What a blessing watching our large group of children blessed by Pastor Ken and our congregation in September. Each received a special pencil bag with a prayer for our children to have with them when they need the comfort and power of knowing Christ is with them! Another fun family event enjoyed by all was the Family Fun Day at the O’Fallon Park and Pool! Great food, fun, and fellowship! Super Delicious sides, salads and desserts! A special thank you to Josh Strausbaugh, and Kevin Frank for transporting the grill and other needed items, and to Mike and Gina Spaulding, Craig and Beth Wilkes, and Pastor Ken for cooking the meats and helping set-up and serve. In Sunday school and Children’s Church, we are learning about being part of God’s Family and Community! We began with some stories of Jesus, some of the people that He encounters, and how that changes them! We hope that the children can all stay for Sunday school on Sundays 10:15-11:30 as together we are building a foundation “to give them a hope and a future!”
