Service times, directions, and what to expect during your first visit to Shiloh
Note: If you're currently joining us in a service for the first time, let us know and we'll make a donation on your behalf! Just fill out the 'I'm New' card here.
Shiloh offers two identical services every Sunday at 8:30a & 10:30a
Breakfast is served for FREE every 2nd Sunday of the month at 9:30a. We love community so this in-between services meal is a great way to meet and see people you usually wouldn't.
We are located at 55 Edmond St. in Manchester, NH 03102
We know visiting a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. Even if you've been to church before everyone does things a little differently. We want to help make your first experience at Shiloh great so here's what you need to know!
Each Shiloh service is about 1 hour and 15 minutes in length. Services begin with our worship band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After a few songs, we'll share some upcoming events and announcements and dismiss children to their classes as we give our tithes and offering.
We don't expect anyone to give unless they feel led and we won't pass plates or baskets down the aisle so everyone can see that you didn't put anything in. We give by putting our offering in baskets that sit on the steps of the stage and many people give online from their seats, so don't worry about who's watching.
Next we'll usually sing one or two more songs before one of our pastors comes out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.
Sundays at Shiloh are bright, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest. We serve coffee and light breakfast items (muffins, coffee cake, etc.) before service at our coffee bar opposite the entry doors. Dress however you feel comfortable. You'll see some people in their 'Sunday best' and others in jeans and a t-shirt. It's not about what you're wearing so if you're good, we're good!
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week and at Shiloh Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our infant through grade 6 programs. You’ll want to give yourself an extra five minutes to get signed in or pre-register your kids right here. (Middle schoolers in 6th - 8th grade do not need to be checked in for their class)
Shiloh Kids is offered at every Shiloh service for kids ages infant through Grade 8. Kids join us during the worship part of the service and are dismissed during offering to our Life Center building where they'll have a ton of fun learning about Jesus.
Note about 1st Sundays: Every 1st Sunday of the month we have a special full service for kids that we call our Connect Service. All children 1 1/2 yrs through 5th grade can go right to the Elementary classroom before service begins where they'll have their own worship time together with kid-oriented songs and dances. After service they can be picked up in their respective classrooms. Middles schoolers (6th - 8th grade) do not meet on 1st Sundays and are invited join us in the main service.
