Summer Worship Series rich in speakers, services and music


Lake Junaluska offers world class spiritual speakers this summer during its annual Summer Worship Series, scheduled for Sundays, June 14 through August 9.

“The beauty of the Summer Worship Series is that it offers a variety of worship styles,world-class preachers, and the Lake Junaluska Singers,” Martin said.

Each Sunday during the Worship Series, adult Sunday School will be offered at 9:30 a.m. at the Harrell Center, followed by traditional morning worship at 10:45 a.m. in historic Stuart Auditorium, with guest preachers. Inspirational worship music will be provided by The Lake Junaluska Singers. Childcare is offered at the 10:45 a.m. service for children six months old and older at the Wilson Children’s Complex, 21 Shackford Hall Road.

Each Monday, a Taize Service Of Prayer And Song will be held at 8 p.m. in Memorial Chapel. This service, Martin said, is a contemplative service in a casual atmosphere, modeled after the Taize Community in France, where participants engage in simple repetitive songs, scripture, candlelight, and silence. “The Taize service offers space to slow down from our busy lives and spend time listening to God,” Martin said.

Guest preachers The Rev. Lisa Yebuah, June 14; The Rev. Grace Imanthiu and Dr. Marcia McFee, Jun 28; The Rev. Susan Henry-Crowe, July 5; Dr. Lauren Winner, July 12; Bishop Richard Looney, July 19; Dr. Derrick-Lewis Noble, July 26; Bishop Thomas Bickerton, August 2; and Dr. Jody Seymour, August 9.
