The Information Desk is a ministry that provides information (regarding Sabbath School Classes, Nursery, and Children's Church to name a few), gives directions to various areas of our church and general communication about activities and happenings at Shiloh to attendees and visitors. If you are a people person and love your church then this could be a great place for you to "plug in."

The Shiloh Parking Ministry (ShilohPM) is an interactive, people oriented ministry designed to ensure a safe and welcoming experience to all who come to the Shiloh Church. The process of efficiently moving cars in and out of the parking lot is fun and requires a well orchestrated communicative team of volunteers. We therefore ought to welcome such, that we may be fellow-workers for the truth, 3 John 1:8

The ShilohPM is an opportunity to serve the body. All who call the Shiloh Church their home are encouraged to participate. The goal of the ShilohPM is to promote a Christ centered, safe, relaxed, and stress free environment.

Here at Shiloh Church we have some challenges in getting congregants in and out of the parking lot. Limited entrances, exits, narrow drive ways, reserve parking requirements, pedestrian traffic, and neighbor relations, all require a dedicated team focused on a tried and true process.

The ShilohPM is a tremendous blessing to all attendees of the Shiloh Church. We welcome all newcomers
