Shiloh Community Church
Franklin, Indiana, 46131
Shiloh Community church is a non-denominational, rural community church located 25 miles south of Indianapolis, Indiana. The church was founded in 1931 by the people of our community and has operated continuously since then, independent of any denominational ties. Currently, Sunday attendance is 30-40. The church has a diversified, aging congregation with a few young families with a desire for growth.
Our church is led by an elected board of elders, trustees and committees that handle the business and financial matters. Therefore, our pastor can focus on being a shepherd and spiritual leader to our congregation.
