Caring for Our Planet Is Happening Again at Jubilee! New LED lighting installed!
One of Jubilee!’s many attributes is working as a community, both among Jubilants and outside Jubilee! in the greater community. The staff and the Earth Team has worked with Duke Energy, Lime Energy, Creation Care Alliance and the Community Foundation on a project to reduce emissions and energy use by changing our lights. After the project looked too expensive, a representative from the Merchants Association and the Creation Care Alliance worked through the Community Foundation  to close the financial gap. On January 14th and 15th, 164 LED lamp/fixture replacements for the cost of $1,490. This means an annual savings of $2,119. and a reduction of 14,250  killowatts per year. Now that’s caring for creation!

While  conserving energy and saving money is good for Jubilee!, there is an underlying  path of Creation Spirituality that also directs us. Jubilee! embraces  the divine mystery in all of Creation and knows it is our responsibility  to take action where we can to protect our Earth and future generations. Let’s celebrate this project as we look at new ways to make a difference for our home planet.

Do You Give Online?  Please Let Us Know Your Intentions for 2019!|
If you are among the more than 175 folks who have completed your Commitment Card, THANKS!  If not, we hope you will complete one this Sunday indicating your desire to support the ministries of Jubilee! Community in 2019. If you do use online giving, it would be helpful if you would let us know that you intend to continue to do so in 2019. You may do this by completing a pledge card, by sending us an email at [email protected] or giving us a call at (828) 252-5335.  We will be setting our 2019 budget on Monday evening, January 28th and the amount to be set as income is based, in part, by the amount of our pledges.  Many thanks!
