Once a year, Epworth Hall hosts a Memorial Service for loved ones and families of any residents of Silver Lake or any member of Silver Lake groups or businesses who have passed away during the previous 12 months. It is hosted on the last Sunday of July at 10:30 am and includes family that has had a loved one pass away through June 30th of that year.
Please send a copy of the obituary (or the name) and a contact phone number and/or email address. Send it to Rev. Greg Franklin, POB 19, Silver Lake, NY 14549 or 585-493-4003 or SLDN@mail.
The service includes the name of the deceased being read, followed by the ringing of a melodic bell, followed by the lighting of a candle. Family members or a friend have the option of saying a few words about the life, interests or hobbies of their loved one. A fellowship and refreshment time follows.
The Memorial Service is in place of the regular Worship Service for the last Sunday of July. The Worship Committee has been urged to continue this service on behalf of the Lake-Wide community of Silver Lake.
