Welcome to Jubilee United Church

Jubilee United Church is an Affirming Ministry, offering welcome and companionship to all people regardless of sexual orientation or designation.

Jubilee United Church was created by the coming together of Bethesda, Donminster and Victoria Village United Churches. Embracing the gifts of these congregations and the many individuals who have joined our community since 2000, we continue to grow. We acknowledge the sacred land upon which Jubilee United Church stands. People have been on this land for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the “Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant”, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

On Sunday, June 23, 2013, we celebrated together Jubilee being officially an “Affirming Ministry.”

church-prideWhat that means is that we are recognized and take responsibility for inviting, welcoming, and including all people who want to experience the love of God and ministry of Jesus Christ as expressed in our community – regardless of sexual orientation or designation.  We take on, as a ministry, the care and comfort of those marginalized and victimized by others for their identity as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgendered (LGBT) people.  As much as it is about LGBT people, it is about a wider diversity as well.  It is about inviting, welcoming, and including those who feel left out because of age, culture, or perceived / experienced abilities.  Becoming an Affirming Ministry is a celebration and commitment to embrace diversity intentionally, graciously, and compassionately – the way that Jesus did.

With your help, we will continue to be a loving, inclusive and responsible community.

We have:

  • Outreach Programs, Discussion Groups
  • Men’s Groups, Women’s Groups
  • Children’s Groups, Youth Groups
  • Bible Studies, Non-Traditional Worship

And
You are invited to join us.

Is LOVE enough?
Also “Scripture is our song for the journey, the living word, passed on from generation to generation to guide and inspire, that we might wrestle a holy revelation for our time and place from the human experiences and cultural assumptions of another era. God calls us to be doers of the word and not hearers only.”
AND
“We offer worship as an outpouring of gratitude and awe and as a practice of opening ourselves to God’s still, small voice of comfort, to God’s rushing whirlwind of challenge. Through word, music, art and sacrament, in community and in solitude, God changes our lives, our relationships, and our world. “
As always, you are responsible for your food and drink, and Norm will keep the conversation going. See you Wednesday!
