Jubilee is a time of celebration! And our church family is celebrating a season of Jubilee! Last summer our church became a debt free congregation which is just amazing to me. I love how it is freeing up our funds to put more toward restoration efforts both in our city and abroad. So this past weekend we had an actual physical celebration of our debt payoff. We gathered together as a church family and had one big party!

Brooks, Candice, and Jeremy (friends of mine from church who are all super talented) came together to be our musical entertainment for the evening. They aren’t actually a band, but Joe Birch introduced them as “The Band With No Name” which I kind of liked so that’s what I named them in this video too, haha!

jubilee cupcakesThere were an unreal number of cupcakes to celebrate with.

tony and christopherWe sat with a group of our friends, but I managed to only take photos of Tony and Christopher. Maybe because photos of the two of them always make me laugh the most. πŸ˜‰

Β The main entertainment of the evening was comedian Bob Smiley and he was hilarious! I pieced together a little bit of the footage so you can enjoy it too. My favorite part was when he accidentally insulted the Arkansan who looks like Santa Claus. πŸ˜‰

trevorrachbobkevThis was actually the second time I’ve heard Bob Smiley perform. The first time was back in 2005 when I was in college. I went to see him with my friends Trevor and Kevin. Look how young I was!

It was a wonderful evening full of laughter (so. much. laughter. ha!) and fun. I’m glad we were able to go!
Love Rach
