Jubilee, Central District, WA – Rev. Jason and Foxy Davison

Give Thanks:

  • Thankful for everyone at Jubilee. It has now been one year since our merger, though we are now parting ways, I thankful for every person in the church across the board there has been a spirit of charity and love towards one another. This month has been very challenging, but even in the midst of Indonesian Fellowship starting their own church, (Cornerstone), there has been joy and perseverance at Jubilee. I am thankful for the Spirit sending us (and me) peace and strength in the face of uncertainty and change.

Trust God:

  • As of mid-August, most of the Indonesian members of Jubilee left to start Cornerstone. This has an obvious impact on the state of Jubilee in terms of Sunday worship, community impact, financial health, and the overall vision of the church. Prior to the merger/incorporation, it took me a great deal of soul-searching and a re-working of my vision to move forward given that our church became predominantly Indonesian. Decisions I made at that time were no longer made (primarily) to reach the target community, but to shepherd the flock God had given me over the course of the year.
  • Now I am praying for strength and resolve to refocus on the Central District and still work with the remaining families of the church. Pray for wisdom and vigor. Pray for the families that stayed that we may grow in grace and unity together–and pray for more mature Christians from my target demographic to join our church.

Prayer Requests:

  • Lord, you give and you take away. You are the Lord of every season. And God I thank you for the honor of serving in your house. As a church we thank you for the blessing of being able to serve in your kingdom. We pray for our brothers and sisters who are moving on to reach the larger Indonesian community, we pray for Cornerstone Church. Lord we lift Jubilee up to you, asking for your strength, wisdom and power. We are thankful for the work we are still doing in the community, now Lord bless these efforts to have eternal, heavenly consequence for people in the Central District.
    Even though we cannot always see your Hand, we know you are working and we thank you for this. God, send not only renewed strength and vision to Pastor Jason, but send more to Jubilee’s number to help establish the church and multiply its impact for your glory. Amen.
