We pray for...

Chris Jones requests prayer for financial provision and peace of mind as he searches for affordable housing.

Let's continue to pray for Wayne and Charlene Gorrow as they recover from losing their home in a fire.

Mike Clymer requests continued prayer for his mother Esther Clymer.  She begins an infusion treatment today which will hopefully address the autoimmune skin condition. Please pray that this treatment will be effective and that she can be free from the painful blistering triggered by the recent immunotherapy cancer treatment.



Lupita Betancourt wants to celebrate with Jubilee that Jean will have the opportunity to play soccer at Meridian Community College!

Jean signs a letter of intent to play soccer at MCC.
If you have any prayer requests you would like shared in the pastoral prayer time of this Sunday's worship service, please send them to Joel Diener or Kelsey Luke.

Please bring your used plastic bags to donate. Thanks! Jubilee's food pantry desperately needs your used grocery bags.

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. 

Jubilee has a summer camp scholarship fund to provide financial assistance for children and youth who are interested in attending summer camp at Pine Lake Camp. If you would like to contribute toward the scholarship fund you can give online by scrolling to the bottom of this email or you can write a check to Jubilee and designate it for camp scholarships. If you would like to request scholarship funds, please talk to Joel Diener.

There are several households in the congregation that are in need of help getting to and from worship services and other church events. If you are interested in helping to provide rides, please contact Joel or Kelsey.
