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.

Doors Open @Jubilee today 430-630pm. A quiet place; some candles... a time for you to pray, talk with a minister, or just commune in silence. Every Wednesday, including today. (You might even take the time to walk the outdoor labyrinth) ...

God in our lives,
Our hearts are rent once again.
Violence in Manchester…
a bomb…
at a concert…
many dead and many more injured.
We don’t know why…
We don’t know how…
We don’t know…
But we feel.
We feel for the victims and the families
We feel for the lives ended and changed
We feel for the rescuers and those who stop the bleeding
and stay
and stay
and stay for the work of healing.
We feel for ourselves as fear creeps in and takes hold.
God of healing,
we come to you cautiously – because we are afraid.
We come because we cannot do this ourselves.
We come because we need to love.
We come because we need love to matter.
God in our midst…. Bring us to peace.
Bring us to justice
Save us from blind vengeance
Hear our cries and help us tend to our wounds…
But right now… in this moment… be with those who felt the blast
Those whose lives have ended before their time…
Be with those who mourn…
And in the morning, help us to find the dawn.
Amen.
