More than 2,500 residents were treated to a special giveaway on Sunday, November 10 as Bishop Godfrey and Minister Iris Williams; Executive Pastor LaQuez and Lady Chantal Williams, the Jubilee Cathedral family and their partners hosted a day of Thanksgiving, praise and fun.
Celebrating 21 years at the Cathedral, Executive Pastor Williams explained that Sunday’s celebration and festivities were a time to give back to the community in a multi-partnership effort.
“As a church we have celebrated our anniversaries with a number of initiatives, including giveaways. However, this year was special as we partnered with several local, national and international organizations, including Third Wave and others that assisted with clothing, grocery and medical supplies.
“So, this was pretty much a well-rounded effort by the church and its partners,” said Williams.
Since the all clear was given after Hurricane Dorian made landfall in Grand Bahama early September, the leadership at Jubilee Cathedral have held daily giveaways, including feeding residents.
Therefore, Sunday’s festivities were a continuation of the church’s senior pastors’ vision.
“Through leaders like Bishop Godfrey and Minister Iris, who had a vision to help the community as the scripture says, ‘when I was hungry you fed me; when I was naked you clothed me.’ So, these are the principles which we operate by,” he added.
“We are looking to hold additional initiatives before the year end, but today we just wanted to celebrate and give God thanks for 21 years at the Cathedral.
“It has been a rewarding and fruitful 21 years and we are looking forward for what God is about to do for us here at Jubilee Cathedral,” said Williams.
The Third Wave team worshipped with the congregation Sunday morning, prior to the afternoon giveaway event which included gospel performances by The Cooling Waters and the church’s Praise Team.
Executive Pastor Williams thanked all who assisted in the success of the festivities, including their partners that were on board from day one.
