30 Years on a Journey with God

Worship Leader: Marcus Diener
Song Leader: Theresa Ladnier Chisolm



This Week at Jubilee...

Upcoming Events

Today we celebrate God's faithfulness to Jubilee during the past 30 years. How will God lead us to grown in the next five years? Please see the Call to Prayer for Growth initiated by Gulf States Mennonite Conference Mission Commission. We welcome your responses. To share your thoughts, talk to someone on the elder/pastor team or drop notes into the box in the hall.

At the end of the worship service today, the congregation will be asked to vote on a proposed amendment to the Jubilee Church Constitution which would change the quorum requirement at congregational meetings from 50 percent of members to a minimum of 12 members. See Mike Clymer, congregational chair, if you have further questions.

The youth will be painting their Sunday school room on Saturday, January 23. Jeff will give the details to the youth later this week.

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is responding to the earthquake that struck Haiti late Tuesday afternoon. MCC committed $100,000 for immediate needs and anticipates a response of at least $1 million over multiple years. MCC's response will include short-term relief plus recovery efforts over the medium and long term. You can help. A special gift for Haiti relief from Jubilee will be sent to MCC. Please designate your gifts “Haiti Relief.” Questions? See Cheryl Landis, Treasurer.

Please check your mailboxes for minutes from this week's council meeting. Questions? See Mike Clymer, Congregational Chair.

We thank God and 8th Street Mennonite from Goshen, Indiana, for all the work that was done around our meeting place this week! Check out the new ceiling in the youth room, the paint and curtains that give the preschool Sunday School room a fresh new look, lighting in the mailbox area, improvements in the office, and shelves in the food pantry. And thanks to Anita Wansley for leading this effort.

Please join us on Wednesday night for Bible Study at Jubilee. A simple meal will be served at 6:00 ($2.00 suggested donation). We meet for worship in the sanctuary at 6:45. Questions? See Anita Wansley.
