Membership/Ownership at Shiloh


We're all in this together~this thing called "life"...

Everyone is welcome at Shiloh.  Anyone can attend services, sessions, study groups and classes who has a desire to learn and grow.  We are a welcoming, supportive and friendly community. 

We include you in our prayers and fellowship, if you want to participate. We know FOR you what you may not remember about yourself and why you are here in this life experience.  Our philosophy is open and inclusive, honoring all faiths.  We know that wherever you are is your continuing journey of unfoldment. 

We don't push and we don't chase people.  We don't recruit or prod people to "join" because we know it is a very personal decision to commit and if/when you're ready~ you'll let us know.  We embrace you with our open hearts knowing that whatever your choice may be, it is right for you.

Some people come for a while and then leave.  Some people come back.  When that happens, there is no inquiry, only a genuine delight to see him or her again.  We know that whatever calls a person to something else was necessary at that time and whatever is calling a person now is part of his or her next step in expanding consciousness. 

Those who enjoy and feel comfortable at Shiloh find a "spiritual home" and may decide to commit to their "spiritual family."  They want to give back to the place where they are spiritually fed and supported in their growth.  They want to be part of something bigger than themselves. 

If you want to formally be part of this sweet spiritual family, all you have to do is ask and we'll initiate a simple process. There are no "membership dues"... only your willingness to give back to Shiloh as a recognition that the Universe is flowing through you.

You can be part of this "spiritual family" without a membership commitment.  So, take some time and review the benefits and commitments of being a "member/owner" (listed below) to help you decide if a formal affiliation serves you.

To join or not to join...does it feel right to you?
