Silver Lake at Home

posted on July 15


Dear FCW Families,

Good News! Silver Lake at Home is here!

Sadly, we cannot spend time at our beloved camp at Silver Lake this summer. Even though we can’t spend time at camp, the good news is that First Church will be bringing a taste of Silver Lake to your children this summer. Silver Lake has developed a program designed to supplement Christian education, and the program focuses on the four Silver Lake "Loves": Love God; Love Your Neighbor; Love Yourself; and Love Creation. As Program Director Jenn says, "While we can't bring a ropes course to your house, we can bring you the Silver Lake Loves." This program will be brought into your homes through Silver Lake at Home Boxes.

First Church in Windsor would like to provide your family with Silver Lake at Home Boxes – one for each child in your family. These boxes contain everything you need to participate in Silver Lake at Home. The contents of each box will guide your family through four weeks of a camp program. Designed to inspire the entire family, you can pick and choose how to engage with the material. Follow the prompts and instructions for a self-guided experience or join a cabin group to share the experience. If you want to do add-ons, such as a cabin group, a separate registration is required, with a small fee. There are also optional activities such as weekly Friday campfires available as well. More information can be found at www.silverlakect.org

First Church will be providing the Silver Lake at Home Boxes at no charge to your family, however, the cut off for requesting a box is FRIDAY, JULY 24.

If your family would like a box, please email Pastor Peter at pastor_peter@fcwucc.org by July 24 with the following information:

  • How many boxes you would like;
  • The names of each child receiving a box;  
  • Addresses for each child; and
  • Preferred phone number where a caregiver can be reached to set up safe delivery.
We are excited to offer you these Silver Lake at Home programs, bringing you a slice of Silver Lake community at a distance. Remember you are not alone, and God loves you just as you are, even when you are staying safe at home out of the physical presence of your friends, your Silver Lake family, and your First Church in Windsor family.

Blessings,

The Christian Education Board
