Silver Lake Update - September 2020

September 18, 2020

Silver Lake Conference Center Email Update to the staff and Board of the Southern New England Conference, UCC   

The SLCC year-round staff has made a goal to be more intentional about communicating our programs and activities with the wider SNE staff. To do this, we aim to send a monthly email to the entire staff with highlights of what we’ve been working on and upcoming events. 
Overnight Family Retreats 
Silver Lake has announced the next phase in reopening: Overnight Family Retreats!   

Reserve a building for your family, roommates, household – your “quaran-team” – for an overnight stay at Silver Lake. Read more details here.  

"This is a great opportunity to listen anew for God calling in your midst. A chance to slow down, craft together, play games together, explore how the Spirit is moving in your life, share some scripture, pray together, discuss how you all are transitioning to the fall, with the start of school, work, and the weather." Read the full blog post from Ryan Gackenhiemer.

Adventure Programming 
This fall, we are offering adventure programming to day groups. Youth groups, school groups, and others will be able to come to Silver Lake for a day of teambuilding activities, adapted to allow for social distancing while still meeting the group’s goals. Now booking!  
Group Retreats 
We are taking reservations for Group Retreats!  
Silver Lake Conference Center strives to offer an extravagant welcome to all who arrive on these Holy Grounds. As we seek to share God’s Love in creation, we always do so with a focus on safety, for guests, volunteers, and staff. We are operating at 50% capacity, with a total site capacity of 67 overnight guests. Individual building capacities range from 7-25 guests. 
Thank you, Kent! - A letter from the Silver Lake Board of Directors
“For all that you have done and been in support of Silver Lake and of our work as the Board of Directors, we are grateful beyond words. We wish you all good things in your newest adventure with the national Office of Philanthropy, and we pray that you will be blessed as we know you will be a blessing for the wider church.”
