Farewell, Lynn…
Her last Sunday will be March 6th when we will offer a Blessing for her.
As many of you know, our wonderful musical maestro, Lynn Rosser, has been going through big-time-hard-times with her son, Jarom, who has major heart issues.  It has now become apparent to Lynn that with all of her responsibilities for her son’s health, she cannot continue as the Jubilee! Singers Director.  This is a sad moment for Jubilee! because Lynn has been with us for 17 years and has added immeasurably to the joy and wonder in our Celebrations.  She has found a fine interim director, Daric Smith, who has been singing with the Singers this year and has studied at Westminster Choir College.

Journeys in the Garden of the Heart…
Four consecutive Mondays starting March 7 @ 7 pm

Offered by the Jubilee! Spiritual Journey Team, Journeys in the Garden of the Heart is a meditation series created by Janice Hayes, Ph.D., containing four meditative visualizations. Each meditation leads the participant into their Heart, the Home of the Soul and Center of Manifestation. Through consistent use of the meditations, the participant finds personal centeredness and safety, love, wisdom, forgiveness and develops a profoundly powerful relationship with their Soul, also known as The Higher Self. In each class we will meditate and share the insights we received. This series will be a fun and easy way connect with and learn more about your fellow Jubilants. The class is free and open to everyone. For more information, email David Robertson at [email protected]

Explore, Express, Co-create, Connect…
Mondays March 14 through May 9, 6 to 8 pm

You are invited to embark on an expressive experience—Choose to participate in My Intimate Companion ~ My Body, a 9-week artistic conversation, exploration, creative collaboration and presentation workshop. Participants will be exploring and expressing the inner landscape of their body using stories, movements and images to craft a performance piece. The workshop, which begins March 14, invites all participants to engage in creative activities and to collectively design a presentation for our community. This two-fold approach serves as a doorway to personal discovery. “Whether we realize it or not, an on-going never ending conversation is chattering away inside each of us about our bodies,” says Director Barrie Barton. “Too much of this, too little of that, how do I look and I want that instead of this.”  People of all experience levels are invited as Barrie facilitates and helps attendees engage in expressive activities using movement, story, writing and art. My Intimate Companion ~ My Body workshop culminates with a community-based movement-theater piece to be performed on Sunday, May 15. The My Intimate Companion series is currently open for registration. Class will meet Monday, March 14 – May 9 from 6—8pm. Course fee: $155. Participants can attend a sample first session for $15. All experience levels and body types welcome. For information and to register: (828) 658-1217 or go to This workshop is sponsored by the Arts Team
