Celebration Information

So what can you expect if you attend one of Jubilee’s celebrations?

  • Love—for one another, for the earth, and for all who inhabit it.
  • Compassion—for those who may be hurting and in need.
  • Acceptance—for every person without exception.
  • Music—Grateful Dead, Mumford & Sons and Jimmy Buffett tunes blended with old-time hymns.
  • Laughter—some of the worst jokes (and puns) imaginable.
  • Inspiration—weekly messages that offer insights into the world’s religions (Christian, Jewish, Taoist, Muslim, Buddhist, and others) and into current events.

Children (pre-K through 12th grade) can participate in our Nurture Program, designed to facilitate each child’s unique faith journey, at 9:45 each Sunday. The nursery is open from 9:30am – 12:30pm.
