Wayne and Charlene Gorrow as they walk the difficult journey of recovering from losing their home in a fire.

Del and Twila Glick and their family as they mourn the loss of Del's sister Darlis.

We are reimagining care groups at Jubilee! Two new interest groups are beginning soon- a disc golf group led by Jeff Landis and a “Sacred Cinema” inspired group led by Kelsey Luke. If you would like to be a part of either of these groups, please let Jeff or Kelsey know! There is also interest in a singing group and a women’s Bible study group. If you would be interested in leading one of these groups, or another interest group, please see Lindsay 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.

"But when the Messiah arrived, high priest of the superior things of this new covenant, he bypassed the old tent and its trappings in this created world and went straight into heaven’s “tent”—the true Holy Place—once and for all.

He also bypassed the sacrifices consisting of goat and calf blood, instead using his own blood as the price to set us free once and for all.

If that animal blood and the other rituals of purification were effective in cleaning up certain matters of our religion and behavior, think how much more the blood of Christ cleans up our whole lives, inside and out.

Through the Spirit, Christ offered himself as an unblemished sacrifice, freeing us from all those dead-end efforts to make ourselves respectable, so that we can live all out for God."

Hebrews 9:11-15 ( The Message )
