Our Dining Room Servers

Those staying in The Terrace and Lambuth Inn will find gracious servers in the Dining Rooms. While employed by Lake Junaluska, a portion of their income comes from gratuities. MWAW will provide a container in both dining rooms on Thursday and Friday to receive gratuities to be divided among each dining room staff. We invite you to express your gratitude to the dining room staff at that time.

Offerings to Be Received This Week

We will receive two offerings during the week. The first will be received tonight at Waynesville First UMC  during the Organ Recital and Chamber Choir Concert. This offering is given to FUMC to assist with on-going maintenance of the organ, which they graciously allow MWAW to use each year.

An offering taken during the Thursday evening concert will benefit the Annual Fund of The Fellowship, which organizes this annual event.

Checks for both offerings should be made payable to “The Fellowship.”

Books by Mary Scifres

Two books by our Worship Leader, Mary Scifres, are available in the Event Office in Harrell Center.  “The Gospel According to Beauty and the Beast” and “Is It Communion Sunday Already?!” are available for $20 (cash or check only).
