What they’re saying…
I spent about 2 years enjoying Jubilatte’s warm inviting atmosphere. I’d drink coffee while my kids played in the play area. It was in Jubilatte that I met and began to form relationships with church members and also Pastor Jeremy. When we decided to start attending Sunday worship, it was clear to me what an impact Jubilatte had on my family’s life. Tigard UMC is where we belong. I’m not sure if we would have discovered that if it wasn’t for Jubilatte.
My family loves coming to Jubilatte. It is my youngest son’s favorite stop in the morning. The boys play in the sweet children’s area while I enjoy a hot cuppa. The prices are super affordable and it’s just a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We stop in as often as possible!
I am honored and thrilled to serve as a volunteer “pastorista” at Jubilatte on Thursday mornings. I love coming in early in the morning, turning the lights on, getting things going, smelling the coffee brew. As the morning goes along, I get to be a part of lots of gatherings: moms with moms; couples; meetings; people working; men “taking a break”. Jubilatte is definitely good for my soul.
