Sunday, November 24th is Thanksgiving
& Commitment Sunday
Bring your Thankful Spirit and your Commitment Card indicating your desire to support the ministries of Jubilee! Community in 2020.  Commitment Cards have been mailed to Jubilants, but if you do not receive your card in the mail, no problem!  We will have extras in the bulletins, on the Communion Table, in the Hospitality Room and at the Welcome Table.  In this season of giving thanks, we want you to know how grateful we are to you for your commitment to and support of Jubilee!  Oh, Yeah!

 Santas Needed for Children in Foster Care
…Select a Child starting Sunday, November 24th
Starting on Sundays, November 24th you will find ornaments hanging on the Jubilee! Christmas tree in the Hospitality Room. Each ornament represents a child who is in foster care in Buncombe County. Each ornament also shares vital information about the child and their hopes for Christmas gifts. Want to be a “Santa”?  Plan on spending about $100 per child, a little less for younger children, perhaps a little more for teens. Too much to spend?  Join with a friend and do it together. Or, if you do not want to do the shopping, you may write a check to Jubilee! and we will handle the shopping for you. Return the gifts to Jubilee! no later than Sunday, December 22nd.   Please do not wrap your gifts as they must be inspected by the foster parents before they can be given to the child. And, please be sure that your ornament with the child’s name is securely attached. 

Speaking Truth with Power
…Saturdays, 11/23, 12/7 & 12/14 at 10 am
Frustrated at the fractured discourse of the day? Wishing you could speak your truth more effectively and move conversations in better directions?  Then don’t miss this 3-part play-shop!  We’ll drum, dance and delight in exploring what creative improvisation can reveal about authenticity, connection and making the difference you most want to make.  10 am to noon. $90 for the series . Register at Daniel Barber.com. Limited to 15 people.

Sell Your Wares and Shop for Gifts
…Bizarre Bazaar coming Sundays, December 1st & 8th
If you are participating in the Jubilee! Talent Project to raise money to keep folks warm this winter, (Remember when you took an envelope with a $10 bill inside?) mark these dates on your calendars: Sundays, December 1st & 8th from 9:45 am to 12:30 pm. We will have tables set up in the Hospitality Room for you to sell your creations.  First come, first served. This is also a great opportunity to purchase gifts for family or friends.

Magical Evenings of Thresholds & River Crossings
…Friday, December 6th, 7 – 9 pm
Come sit by the fire and drop into another world where time flows differently, animals and spirits guide us and transformation happens without our logical minds needing to figure it out. Rites of Passage Council founder Kedar S. Brown will lead us through a medicine story designed to shake loose old conceptions of the Self and prepare the soil for a new version of us to emerge. We will learn more about initiatory rites of passage and finding belonging, inspiration and deeper connection through indigenous wisdom rites and rituals. A donation of $15 to $35 is asked.  Sponsored by the World Beat Band.

Caroling on the Bus
…Monday, December 9th at 5:30 pm
Jubilee! and the LaZoom Bus are partnering again! We will be going on a Christmas Caroling Tour and you are invited.  The tour will be offered on Monday, December 9th at 5:30 pm.   You may reserve your seat with payment of $20 per person at the Welcome Counter today. The bus will only hold 40 folks so be sure to get your tickets  as soon as possible. The bus will depart promptly from the bus parking area located at the corner of Battery Park and Otis Street. This is a Jubilee! Talent Project. And thanks to Jim LaZoom for his donation of the bus!

 Restorative Yoga Class
…Tuesday, December 10 at 7 pm
 Calm the nervous system, release stress and rejuvenate the spirit for the Holiday Season. We will be using bolsters, blocks, and blankets to ease our bodies and minds into a relaxing practice of supported postures. Dress for cozy comfort & bring props if you have them. 100% goes to the Jubilee! Talent Project Fund to help keep folks warm this winter. A donation of $10—$20 is asked. Quesitons? Email Paula

The Door Will Be Locked
…Sundays from 10 am to 10:45 am|
Our Patton Avenue door will be locked between 10 am and 10:45 am on Sundays for the security of our children. If you need access to Jubilee! during that time, just walk around to our Wall Street entrance. Please do not bang on the door. It will not be answered as our Nurture staff will be busy working with our children.
