The three signs that welcome people onto the Silver Lake Institute have now been updated to reflect the Institute's status of independence from the United Methodist Church which took place in February of 2016. The signs were planned and installed before the independence agreement and contained the official United Methodist Church insignia or registered trade mark in the left and right lower corners of each sign.
The update was finally completed to have the insignia, a "cross and flame," replaced with a simple cross which points to SLI's Worship program and its long history of Christianity within the United Methodist (since 1968), Methodist (since 1939), and Methodist Episcopal Church (since its inception in 1784). The signs were updated earlier this week and reported on Wednesday by the LRP Committee. The welcome signs are located at the intersections of Camp Rd. and Perry Ave., Camp Rd. and Lakeview Ave., and Chapman Rd. and Janes Ave. (one block east of Perry Ave.).
