Island Chapel services start for season June 30

UPPER SARANAC LAKE — Island Chapel will begin its summer worship season on Sunday, June 30 at 10 a.m. and continue throughout on Sundays throughout the summer, with the last day of service on Sept. 1.

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 picturesque ride at 9:15 a.m. and again at 9:35 a.m. 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. Congregants may also arrive in their own boats as well.

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.

The following inspirational speakers will be conducting the worship services:

¯ June 30, Rev. Eric Olsen

¯ July 7, Rev. Derek Hansen

¯ July 14, Rev. John Sampson

¯ July 2, Rev. Joann White

¯ July 28, Rev. Marty Weitz
