Jubilee Life During COVID–19
These are strange days, aren’t they? Each of us is experiencing a real mix of emotions and challenges. Jubilee desires to serve you and encourage your heart in these days that can be trying. Below we have some links and information. We also have invitations for you to enter into fellowship and prayer with us. With you, we are seeking to live well in this new reality; however long it lasts.
None of us should walk alone. God has designed the church to be a family so that we can love, encourage, help, and pray with and for one another. Please let us know how we can help and serve you in this time. Our prayer is that God would powerfully be your Rock amid this storm and that you would experience the grace of God.
If you are new to Jubilee and would like to connect with someone from the church, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com. We’d love to pray for you and connect you to our community, in the midst of this crisis.
Due to government restrictions on public gatherings, we will not hold regular worship services at our church building presently. We are looking forward to that day when we will be able to gather again in person! But until then we will be worshipping together remotely each Sunday.
Jubilee Leadership has been sending out an “Order of Worship” each Sunday, with included links to the worship songs and sermon. A video for children is also included. Feel free to go through this with your household, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to join in on a video call with others who are walking through the service together. The Order of Worship will be uploaded below each Saturday evening.
