April Showers Bring May Flowers! This month is a very busy month here at Jubilee. It’s an exciting time with the Resurrection Drama, “From the Manger to the Cross”, quickly approaching! This is always a very refreshing and renewing time among our church body every year. Our church has a tremendous opportunity during these three days to witness to several hundred people, right here in our own community. The office has already started receiving calls from other churches to make sure we are having the drama again this year. We will probably never realize here on this earth what an impact we have made in people’s lives. This month I am recognizing our final club, Truth & Training Boys. T & T Boys consists of third – sixth grade boys. Bro. Rodney Hester is the Boys Director and the leaders are Bro. Gary Evetts, Bro. Eligia Stafford and Bro. Raymond Bray is a Leader-In-Training. There are seven boys enrolled, with 4 regular attendees, who are as follows: Hunter Biggers, Blake Cornwell, Caleb Scholl and Ezekiel Tatum. Boys, keep up the good work. Our Awana year is quickly coming to an end. Clubbers, if you are close to finishing your handbook, you need to be studying extra hard these next few weeks. When we come back after the Resurrection Drama we only have 4 club nights remaining.

Again, parents I can never stress enough what an honor it is to be able to minister to your children through Awana. Thank you for allowing us this privilege. Barbara Kids Matter To God and Kids Matter To Us Too!


April Nights in Awana
5th – Resurrection Drama Practice NO Awana 12th – Resurrection Drama NO Awana 19th – Regular Night 26th – Rain Gear Night (Wear your rain gear outfits)

Since January we have been planning Church Camp, and there are several people working hard to make

this year another successful camp. We need you to be a part of the success. This is certainly not a vacation. It will require hard work and dedication. You will not be afforded the amenities of TV, radio, cell phones, and others. What you will get is 4 days and 4 nights set aside for the sole purpose of meeting with God. You will come home tired, but refreshed. You will come home broken, but stronger. You will come home heart broken, but blessed. You will come home having met with God. You will come home having developed relationships with young people you never knew before. Your eyes will be opened to problems, conflicts, and spiritual needs you never thought existed. Church Camp this year will be July 6th through July 10th. We will leave on a Monday morning and return Friday afternoon. Worker applications will be available after Easter on the back table of the sanctuary. If you need information please see Kristen, Ronda, Dawn, Theresa, or myself. Worker applications along with a $25 deposit are to be turned in to one of those listed or the church office by May 3rd. We will also have the camper applications available. They are due by May 31st. Bro. Andy

A big thank you goes out to all those who helped us in the Youth Evangelism Conference! Everyone did such an outstanding job! To all the Youth and Children, you were great! You all made me proud! Looking forward to next year's Youth Evangelism Conference. Bro. Leroy

Don’t grumble because you don’t have what you want – be thankful you don’t get what you deserve.

Beginning in May, Jubilee’s early toy drive will begin. We will be accepting gifts for the Family

Room first. Each family visiting the Toy Store picks out a gift from this room. Gifts vary from crock pots, toaster ovens, George Foreman grills, toasters, coffee makers, food processors, dishes, glasses, silverware, cookware, to any other small kitchen appliance you can think of. Not only are there items for the kitchen there is also bedding, table lamps, floor lamps and other household items. Basically, anything that is useful and practical for the house would be good items to donate. Please join us in blessing others with our donations to the Toy Store.

19th – Phyllis Leftrick, Kristen Leath & Ryan Alanis 26th – Doris Stafford & Laura Moore

Here is information about our website: It is exciting to see the food pantry and clothes closet begin to fill. The food pantry was really busy this past month. What an honor to represent Christ in giving to the families. Second Harvest Food Bank has shown an interest in helping, but the primary stocking will be done by us. Donations will be accepted continually. It is important to keep our shelves stocked so we will be ready when we are called upon. Contacts have been established in the communities surrounding Jubilee. If you know of anyone in need of food or clothing, contact Mike Compton, Debbi Moore, SuSan Small-Hammer or Theresa Marsic. Home page is informational on our church as a whole. The Events page is where you would go to find upcoming events (Vacation Bible School will have a sign up form there), the church calendar and the newsletter. The links page supports many links for bible study/devotion, biblical financial sites, Christian radio stations, and Christian activities and educational helps for children. Our Ministry page is mostly designed to inform what is going on with our different ministries in our church. For instance you can find pictures of the children and recipes from the past ladies fellowships there. I would like to encourage you to check out the site and see if you can't find something there to help you in your Christian walk (the audio bible is great too). But as always if you know of something you would like to see added to it or something that just isn't correct, please send me an email so that it can be taken care of. (cyndiwill93@yahoo.com.) Thanks and God Bless, Cyndi Williams

Easter Cookies
Here's an excellent, fun way to recount the story of Jesus' death and the wonder of Easter: Easter cookies. Each step of the way allows a chance to read from the Bible and discuss the varying contributions Jesus made. To begin this lesson, gather one cup of whole pecans, one teaspoon of vinegar, three egg whites, a pinch of salt, one cup of sugar, a zip lock sandwich baggie, a wooden spoon, an electric mixer, wax paper, cookie sheets, tape, and a Bible. Preheat the oven to 300 degree Fahrenheit. Place the pecans into the zip lock baggies, and break them into smaller pieces with the wooden spoon. Explain how Jesus was beaten by the Roman soldiers after he was arrested, and read John 19:1-3. Next, add the vinegar to the mixing bowl and tell the children that Jesus was given vinegar to drink while he was on the cross. Read John 19:28-30. Add the egg whites to the bowl, explaining that eggs represent life and how Jesus gave his life to us by reading John 10:10-11. Now add a pinch of salt to the bowl to represent the tears shed by Jesus' disciples and followers after his death. Have each child taste the salt to remind them of the bitterness of sin. At this point, read Luke 23:27.

The next step is to add the sugar while telling the children how the sweetest part of Jesus' story is that he died because he loves us. To reinforce this notion, read Psalm 34:8 or John 3:16. Beat the mixture with the mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes. Have the children take turns beating the mixture until stiff peaks are formed. Next, fold in the pecans and drop by teaspoons onto cookie sheets covered with wax paper. Read Matthew 27:57-60 to explain how each cookie represents the tomb where Jesus' body was laid to rest. Put the cookies in the oven and close the oven door. Turn the oven off and seal it with tape to represent the way that Jesus' tomb was sealed off. Read Matthew 27:65-66. Now the children will have to wait until after the service finishes to eat their cookies. Read John 16:20 and 22 to learn about how Jesus' disciples and followers were saddened by the sealing of his tomb. Finally, once the service is finished, open the oven and distribute the cookies which are hollow on the inside, which serves to represent the empty tomb after Jesus rose. The culmination of this craft is Matthew 28:1-9, which speaks of Jesus' rise from the dead. Not only is this a tasty way to end the Easter lesson, it also reinforces many of the important ideas from this time of the year: how Jesus gives us life, that Jesus loves us all unconditionally, and the bitterness of sin.
