New Here? What to Expect
You Are Invited
“In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.”―Acts 2:17
Churches today are sometimes guilty of thinking only the visions and dreams for the future belong to the young. They strategize and plan their church programs, budgets, and new leadership for those they feel can help grow the church. They are not intentional about engaging older adults across their ministries.
At Ventura Jubilee Fellowship, our doors are wide open for people of all backgrounds, regardless of age or where you are in your spiritual journey. Yes, we’re a church of older adults, but that doesn’t matter. Sunday mornings, you’ll see happy, friendly people carrying on various functions of the church with great enthusiasm and purpose.
Together, we strive to glorify God and honor His Word through fellowship with one another, individual and corporate prayer, and enjoyable activities that teach us God’s ultimate purpose for our lives as we continue to use our spiritual gifts and grow in our faith.
