Reading Group


The Spiritual Life reading group meets every other Friday morning (some exceptions – see dates below) from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. from early September to early June.  The group meets in the Trinity House lounge. The purpose of the group is to deepen our relationship with God. We attempt to accomplish this through collectively reading a book by a current theologian and discussing the key points made by the author.  Copies of the current book are available at the Spiritual Life Center and at the Wilson Gift Shop. 

Meeting dates:

Fall 2018

Spiritual Life Summer Facilities & Services

Spiritual Life Tent

All Spiritual Life seminars are held along the lake shore just beyond the Nature Center, behind the Children’s Pavilion. A tent has been set up in this peaceful and tranquil setting. Seminars begin at 9:00 a.m. and finish at 10:15 a.m. We invite you to come to this beautiful setting and take the opportunity to deepen in your life journey. All are welcome. Please note that all of the books used in the seminars are available to purchase at the Silver Bay Gift Shop and at the seminar.


The Silver Bay Labyrinth is located just North of Slim Point and east of the Gymnasium. It is open twenty-four hours a day seven days a week and is available for reflection and meditation. It is a tool for deepening our spiritual journey. Walking the Labyrinth is a soul-renewing experience where we come to feel the presence of the sacred. All of our scheduled labyrinth walks are facilitated by an experienced instructor.
