We will have our annual Christmas "cantata" at 11 a.m. on Sunday, December 8, 2013. As usual, the service will include music and drama in anticipation of the upcoming season.
All are welcome.
Church business meeting December 5
We will have a congregational meeting in the multi-purpose room at the church at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 5, 2013. All members are invited to be present.
Rev. & Mrs. Cooper feel led to a new venue
Two faithful servants of Christ in this congregation, Rev. Ronald Cooper and his wife, Deaconess Joanne Cooper, have decided to enter new doors of service elsewhere.
Sunday, December 1, 2013, was their last Sunday with us at Shiloh Old Site. They will be missed greatly, but we all pray for God's blessing on them as they pursue new avenues of service.
Rev. Cooper had long served on our ministerial staff, preaching, leading services, and visiting the sick and shut-in. Deaconess Cooper was our church secretary / financial secretary. Both also sang regularly in multiple choirs and ministered among us in other ways as well.
Secretary applications being accepted
Anyone interested in applying for the position of church secretary / financial secretary at Shiloh Old Site is welcome to mail a resume as soon as possible to: Secretary Search, Shiloh Baptist Church (Old Site), 801 Sophia Street, Fredericksburg, Virginia 22401.
Resumes will be reviewed by a committee from the congregation who will then interview selected candidates and make a recommendation to the congregation as a whole.
Church office closed
During this period in which the church is without a secretary, the church office will be closed. There will be no office hours. Volunteers will occasionally check for messages left on the phone, but the phone will not be regularly answered.
Deaconess Mary Edwards will temporarily prepare the weekly church bulletin, but she will not be doing any other secretarial tasks.

A Moment in Time: 1890
We have begun creating new pages that convey some of this congregation's history at particular moments in time. You'll find descriptions of important events, photographs, maps, and even listings of names, reflecting some of the people who played either larger or smaller roles in this congregation's history. The first "Moment in Time" page that we created focuses on 1890, the year that we rebuilt our damaged sanctuary, a year of great energy and vision. You can view the "Moment in Time" pages by clicking on them under the "History" tab at the top of this page, or sample the 1890 page by clicking here.
