Children are invited to hang out and have some fun while their parents/guardians are at the 40th Anniversary Wine & Cheese Social. We’ll have bounce houses and make ice cream sundaes. Register by Wednesday, March 29.
Silent Auction in the Chapel
Come to the Chapel Friday evening, March 31 and Palm Sunday, April 2 after church until 12:00pm and bid on a wide array of items: dinners, spa days, services, outings, babysitting, family items and so much more!
Be sure to come back to the Narthex by 1:30pm on Palm Sunday to see if you’ve won any of the amazing auction items. Pay and collect at this time. If you are not able to claim your item, someone will contact you during the week. All proceeds will benefit JupiterFIRST Church and missions.
Palm Sunday Celebration & BBQ Lunch
Please join us for a special Palm Sunday Worship Service at 9:30am followed by a delicious 40th Anniversary BBQ lunch in and around Faith Hall. Enjoy live music from the Kevin Kelly Trio Band, the Silent Auction, and fellowship with your church family.
We hope you’ll hang around after lunch for our annual Easter Egg-Stravaganza. We’ll have bounce houses, egg hunts, games and more…. and even a visit from the Easter bunny!

A Special Invitation
It is with great JOY that we invite you to join us in celebrating the 40th Anniversary of JupiterFIRST Church. The LOVE of Christ has been ever present in this community of FAITH since 1983. We extend a warm welcome to you along with family and friends as we come together to remember, reminisce, and celebrate the future God has in store for us.
You are an important part of our history. Whether you join us weekly or haven’t seen us in years, you are welcome. If you joined the JupiterFIRST church family in the beginning or have just begun your journey here, you are welcome. If you have come and gone, and come and gone again over the years, you are welcome. If you have found a new church home or are not a member of any church, you are welcome. Come. Join us. And give glory for all God has done in this place.
Our kids K-5 and our Youth 6-12, will meet for their respective weekly gatherings with a special focus on a creative project reflecting on the 40 year history of JupiterFIRST.
Then, Friday, March 31 join us for an adult Wine & Cheese Social gathering in and around the Narthex and Serenity Garden featuring a silent auction, special music, wine and hors d’oeuvres. Parents, drop your kids off in Faith Hall for a Kids Social where they will be loved, spoiled and treated to games, fun, ice cream and more while adults enjoy the evening with their church family and friends.
On Palm Sunday, April 2, we will celebrate Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem, hear from special guests and have exciting announcements during worship followed by a campus-wide BBQ luncheon for all. Topping off the festivities will be our annual Easter Eggstravaganza and family fun day for the entire community!
We look forward to rejoicing with you in the unconditional LOVE and GRACE of Christ as we celebrate this joyful milestone together. We hope to see you on Palm Sunday, April 2 at 9:30am in addition to the week’s exciting anniversary events.
