Summer Celebration, a Lipscomb tradition, is a time for members of the community to gather on campus and spend time with a particular biblical focus. Since such a large gathering was deemed unsafe, the event has again been postponed until May 2022.
However, there will still be a way for those interested to take part this summer.
According to Scott Sager, Vice President of Church Services, “Our summer program for SC 2021 will be a weekly virtual speaker sent out each Sunday evening.”
This summer’s session is entitled “Out of Exile: Rethinking and Renewing the Post-Covid Church.” Each week will cover a different topic with a different lecturer, similar to 2020’s format.
Though there will still be virtual conferences this year, Lipscomb is placing a lot of emphasis on next year’s in-person meetings. In their announcement they said, [Summer Celebration 2022] will be a celebration like none other!”
Next summer’s theme will be “Disciplemaking: the Church’s Core Mission”. The dates have already been set and the sign-ups are open.
“Please make plans now to join us for SC2022 on June 29-July 1, 2022. We still believe it will be our most significant program ever!”

Hopes are high for next year’s Summer Celebration as it will offer a return to normalcy for this event.
