Island Chapel opens for the season Sunday
UPPER SARANAC — The Island Chapel will begin its summer worship season this Sunday at 10 a.m.
Services at the chapel will continue throughout the summer, on Sundays, with the last day of service on Sept. 4.
The Island Chapel is located at the south end of Upper Saranac Lake. Boat transportation is offered every Sunday morning on the Chapel Bound pontoon boat, which leaves from the end of Old Dock Road off state Route 3. The first boat leaves for the ride at 9:15 a.m. and again at 9:35. Congregants may also arrive in their own boat as well. The boat driver drops off their passengers at the chapel dock and then anchors off shore. A shuttle transports the driver back to the dock for the 10 a.m. service.
Island Chapel is a Christian interdenominational church, where everyone is welcome to join in the blends of faith to worship together. Volunteers on the chapel committee serve to operate the chapel each week. Worship at the chapel has been a unique summer experience since the mid-1800s. The island blends into the Adirondack landscape among tall pines, mountain peaks and glistening water.
