Experience Another Culture with the Latin Neighbor Team
You are invited to join the Latin Neighbors Team, Jubilee’s newest outreach team. We will plan ways to connect Jubilants with our Latin Neighbors to share cultural and family traditions, discuss issues affecting local immigrants and directly support the immigrant community of Buncombe County. The Team will plan Latino/Jubilant family gatherings, with music, piñatas, and dance, study books, newspaper articles, team leader videos and first hand accounts to examine facts about immigrant life and develop referrals for work in the Buncombe County area. The only languages you need to speak are laughter, acceptance, and friendship! The first meeting will be on Wednesday, October 7, at 7 pm at Marian Patten’s home. Meet Marian in the Hospitality room with questions after each service on Sunday, October 4th or contact Marian at 828-252-5826, firstname.lastname@example.org.

So, locate the pet shampoo, find the leash, and bring your pet to Jubilee! to be blessed. For the safety of people and other pets, we ask that all pets be under your control at all times, either on a leash or in some kind of container.
