Current Emphasis

The emphasis for the month of April is the Silver Lake Scholarship Fund.

The Silver Lake Scholarship Fund helps our church family children and youth who want to attend a week at Silver Lake but may need assistance with the tuition. A week at Silver Lake is a wonderful experience for our children and youth, consider your donation as an investment in our children and youth who are the future of our beloved congregation.


Silver Lake has hosted thousands of summer 'conferees,' or campers, from age 9 through 19, and is now proudly hosting the second generation of children whose parents "grew up" there, for their own memory-making experience in a nurturing, inclusive environment of transformation. It's a place to connect, make deep friendships, feel accepted for who you really are, embrace the outdoors, play, pray, create real community, engage in leadership and service experiences, take risks, emotionally, spiritually, and physically, in a safe place... under the umbrella of Outdoor Ministry.
