August 6th, 2009 and August 9th, 2009
Celebrating Great Preaching at Lake Junaluska
Dr. Reginald Mallett of England
“Offer Them Christ” is the theme for two “special” worship services will be held to “Celebrate” Dr. Reginald Mallett’s 44 years of preaching ministry at Lake Junaluska on Thursday, August 6, 2009, at 7:30 PM. and Sunday, August 9, 2009, at 7:30 PM. The Junaluska Singers, under the direction of Dr. Glenn Draper, will be the featured musicians and song leaders for these services. Dr. Mallett, an outstanding preacher (as well as physician) in England, is one of the most popular and most sought-after preachers ever to come to Lake Junaluska Assembly. Dr. Mallet has said that 2009 will probably be the last year that he and Mrs. Mallett will be coming to the States. In addition to these special “Celebration Services,” Dr. Mallett will be preaching for the Sunday morning worship services in Stuart Auditorium on August 9th and 16th.
Sandwiched between these two "Celebration" worship experiences is the Junaluska Associates Weekend, August 7-9, which closes with Dr. Mallett preaching at the 10:55 am Sunday morning worship service in Stuart Auditorium. Persons are welcomed and encouraged to register for the Associates Weekend program, which begins Friday evening, 7:30 pm, with two outstanding groups, "Bailey Mountain Cloggers" and "Balsam Range Band." Both groups highlight a program of Southern Appalachian and Blue Ridge culture music and folk dancing traditions.
Saturday's program begins at 10 am in Harrell Center with Dr. and Mrs. Mallett sharing an informal setting, their mutual journey of more than 50 years, as a physician and Methodist Pastor in England and the time spent preaching in America. In the afternoon, participants have the option of playing in a golf tournament or participating in one of several special interest opportunities. Saturday evening includes the Annual Associates Dinner at 6 pm, which preceeds the Junaluska Singers Concert at 7:30 pm. This will be their last summer concert directed by Dr. Glenn Draper, who is retiring as the director of the Singers at the close of the year. Several former Junaluska Singers, including the Ed Brothers and the Harper Sisters, will participate in the Saturday night concert.
Dr. Mallet will close the Associates' Weekend when he preaches at the 10:45 am Sunday morning worship service in Stuart Auditorium. Non-Associates may register for the Weekend program for $30 per person, which allows your participation in all the program activities. Register by sending your name(s) and check to the:

He is one of the most popular and most sought-after preachers ever to speak at Lake Junaluska and has conducted preaching missions in many United Methodist Churches throughout the Southeastern Jurisdiction through these years. The Sunday night "Celebration Worship Service" at 7:30 pm will be a time of testimonies and recognition of Dr. Mallett's ministry and conclude with him preaching.
In addition to these special "Celebration Services" and Associates Weekend, Dr. Mallett will be the featured speaker at the "Older Adult Gathering" on August 10-13, and he will be preaching at the WNC "Gathering of the Laity" August 14-16.
