The Outreach Ministry is a collaborative effort between all the ministries of Shiloh Baptist Church of Landover. A Deacon or Minister is assigned by the Pastor to be the coordinator of the ministry. A ministry will be assigned a month during the year to take the lead on an outreach activity and at least 2-4 other ministries will be assigned to assist the lead ministry in carrying out its outreach activity. The intent is to get all of Shiloh involved in participating in an outreach activity in the community during the year.

The SBC Outreach Initiative for the month of August

A School Supplies Distribution, to the neighboring community, is being spearheaded by Circle 8, the Nurses’ Ministry, and the Pastor’s Nurses. Members of Shiloh Baptist Church are asked to donate two complete backpacks of school supplies for distribution on Saturday, August 26, 2023, beginning at 10:00 am. Please include all items from either the Secondary School Supplies’ list or the Elementary School Supplies’ List. Please put the supplies in a backpack and label the backpack as either Secondary or Elementary by stapling the appropriate list to the backpack. The backpacks should be placed in the container near the vestibule each Saturday through Saturday, August 19, 2023.

Pastor Colleton extended to the congregation the option of Shiloh’s disciples making a donation of $25.00 in order to donate a backpack and supplies to the August Outreach Ministry for the School Supplies Distribution.   Donations should be made no later than Sunday, August 20, 2023, so that the August Outreach Team will be able to secure the funds to purchase and package the supplies.

 All checks or donations should be earmarked to Shiloh Baptist Church and a notation should be made on the Offering Envelope that the funds are for Backpacks with School Supplies. THIS IS A CHURCH WIDE OUTREACH MINISTRY. If you purchase the school supplies early, you usually get the best buy for your money. Look for sales ads in the Washington Post on Sundays.
