Committees Working Hard
as Mid-Season Approaches

For the Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC), mid season this year means a lot of detail work between the writing and proofing of the SLI Handbook and the entry of family histories from the Heritage Walkway into the written record at http://heritagewalkway.blogspot.com. They hope also to get the Ames Ave. Walkway signs up shortly in addition to discussing parking signs and possible private lighting.

For the Worship Committee, mid season this year means two big services on July 29th and August 5th. The first is the Annual Lake-wide Memorial Service which is held at Epworth Hall the last Sunday of July at 10:30 am. Those persons whom we have lto death in the past 12 months will be memorialized with a bell chiming out the naming of the person, the lighting of candles, a few spoken words of memory, distribution of roses, and a time of fellowship and refreshment.  

The second service on August 5th will highlight the early history of the Camp Wesley and Silver Lake Assembly (the first names given to Silver Lake Institute) and specifically the large chautauqua-type ministry made available to us through the construction of the amphitheater-auditorium in 1888 which comfortably seated 2500 with an overflow of another 500.

The arson fire in 1918 radically changed the programming at the Assembly because we could no longer accommodate such large numbers. It opened new opportunities for joint ministries such as the National Sunday School Association training and continued a strong Epworth League youth ministry. Anyone wishing to dress in period outfits to help highlight the 1888-1918 period is invited to do so. This service will be under a 20x30' tent in the Bishop Burt Park at 10:30 am. More information coming.
