Be the Light Gifts

A Special Giving Initiative for 2020 and 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 and 2021 has ushered in unforeseen challenges — limits on the size of group gatherings, travel restrictions and social distancing requirements. Yet, Lake Junaluska remains faithful to living out our mission by being a light for the rest of the world in creative ways. We have adapted our ministry model to provide a safe haven for individuals, families and small groups who are seeking renewal in the midst of this challenging time.

Ways You Can Help

Many of our donors have asked how they can help during this time and our answer is two-fold:

  • First, your Annual Fund gift to Lake Junaluska this year is critical in supporting our ability to adapt to the challenges of the pandemic and continue to fulfill our mission and ministry.
  • Second, we invite you to Be the Light by making an additional gift, over and above your ongoing Annual Fund support.

When choosing to make a Be the Light gift, you are choosing to give a special gift to support Lake Junaluska’s mission and ministry during this critical time. Additionally, your gift will ensure that, after this crisis has receded, Lake Junaluska’s tomorrow will be as bright and as transformational as we have been historically.
