Our Services

What are services like?
We gather with songs, prayers, and litanies, hear the Word of God proclaimed through Scripture and preaching, profess our faith using the Apostles' or Nicene Creed, share God's gifts to us through an offering, receive Christ's body and blood through bread and cup, and are sent into the world to proclaim God's love to all through word and action. The service is a traditional Lutheran service that uses the Lutheran Book of Worship setting 2. We celebrate Holy Communion weekly and all baptized Christians are invited to the table to receive communion or a blessing. We have a children's sermon and the children collect change to help with several worthy causes. We have Advent service on Thursdays in Advent and a Christmas Eve service. We begin Lent with imposition of Ashes, followed by Thursday Lenten Services. We have Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services during Holy Week.

What is the community like?
We are a small church that is like family. We have a coffee hour every Sunday as a continuation of our fellowship. We have a Bible study group that gathers at 12:30 p.m. on Fridays. We welcome all to come study with us, you do not have to be a member or even a Lutheran to enjoy our Friday Bible Study. We like to sing. We may be small in number, but we are mighty in praising our Lord in song.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come worship with us! Come study God's Word with us! We will welcome you to walk with us on your faith journey!

  • First, I love Shiloh as my father was its pastor from 1968-1970. It was my father's last Lutheran Church to serve until he passed. Shiloh as I remember was truly a most loving congregation, proud of it's heritage, and very Christ and family centered. When you worshiped at Shiloh you knew you had been to worship, forgiven, and spiritually equipped to meet the demands of the next week. Out of all the Lutheran Churches i have belonged to, Shiloh stands out from all of them, the congregation was so kind to us, and the couple of teachers at Lewis Cass really helped me to develop a very close relationship to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as I prepared to enter college. All I can say is if you want a truly enriching, non-judgmental, worship experience in the company of a very warm congrgation and loving Christians, Shiloh is the place to be on Sunday morningsShiloh was and will always be my spiritual home!
