The Pastor Search Committee (PSC) continues to do the process of discernment of potential pastor candidates with the goal of the best match of pastor candidate gifts and needs of Jubilee.  When the PSC is ready to make a recommendation, it will go to the council.  The church council will then process that recommendation.  It is the church council that determines what recommendation comes to the congregation.  If you have any questions, please contact any PSC member (Suzanne Opel, Melody Clymer, Jeff Landis, Lisa Shelly). 

Mom’s Group is moving to Wednesday mornings. Questions? See Lindsay Diener. 

GSMC Spring Conference 2022 will be Saturday, May 7 from 10am to 2pm at Pine Lake Fellowship Camp Main Camp. Lunch will be provided. Come for worship, fellowship, and sharing around the theme, "Everybody Has a Story." Donations are welcome for lunch and camp use expenses. Contact Jeff Landis with questions.

may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, 
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is Christ's love, 
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—
that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."

Ephesians 3:17-19
