Join us at the 2013 "Gathering of the Laity"
Transforming our communities, our churches, our lives!
Lake Junaluska Conference & Retreat Center
Held at the beautiful Lake Junaluska Conference & Retreat Center, this annual event attracts attendees from throughout the southeast United States and beyond.
"The Gathering" has become a summer tradition for many, with many frequently returning year after year to be challenged by powerful speakers, to engage with others in worship and prayer, and to grow spiritually through times of personal study and reflection.
This year's theme is "Transformers: Transforming our communities, our churches, and our lives!" Our focus will be on the many ways we are challenged to live out our mission as disciples of Christ to make a difference in the world.
The Gathering of the Laity is sponsored by the Board of Laity of the Western NC Conference of the United Methodist Church,
