Join us at Lutheridge August 12-14, 2021, for our Adult Church Music Retreat as we learn and sing, and ring for joy in the mountains!
Lutheridge and the Music Week leadership, to provide the safest and healthiest opportunity for adult guests to gather for a music retreat, determined we would move to a shorter weekend event after our summer camps have ended. We look forward to welcoming new participants to this church music gathering in the mountains and welcoming back all those who have made Music Week at Lutheridge a yearly tradition.
Our conference presenters are David Sims and Nathan Proctor from Minneapolis, MN, and our chaplain is the Rev. Jennifer Shimota, from LTSS in Columbia, SC. From Thursday evening to Saturday lunchtime, they will lead us in exploring and worshiping with the new ELCA hymnal supplement, All Creation Sings, as well as other worship materials. Ed Tompkins will lead a handbell reading session, and we hope to include a handbell ensemble in worship and the Friday evening Hymn Festival. Come sing and ring with us!
Lifting new songs to the Lord has always been at the center of Lutheridge’s Music Week, as is the community created among all who gather in the beautiful mountains surrounding Asheville. Bring your talents and join us as we learn from passionate and engaging sacred music leaders. Share in creative and inspiring worship in Lutheridge’s unique settings. And have a relaxing adventure on the mountain amid God’s good creation!
As we proceed through the summer before this retreat, we will provide updates on health and safety protocols in place and how those will impact our gathering.
