Hello to Parishioners of Island Chapel, Upper Saranac Lake , NY. 

It is with true regret we must announce the Island Chapel will not be opening this summer 2020. The difficult and sad decision to not open was made by the Chapel Committee, a group of dedicated people who love and care for the chapel.  The current health concerns involved with the covid virus made our opening the chapel not safe. We all will miss summer Sunday worship at the chapel. It is truly a special place of peace. Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Pray we get through this unsettled time. Know we are thinking of you, and we hope you are of us. We will open the chapel next summer 2021 when God willing the sickness will be behind us. Thank you.

Nancy Farrell
Chair of the Island Chapel Committee

Chapel Island is an interdenominational chapel offering a worshipful atmosphere throughout the summer. Inspirational speakers conduct the worship service. Each Sunday members of the congregation are invited to sing in an impromptu choir. Worshipping at the island has been a unique experience since the mid-1800’s. The Chapel, which is on its own island, blends well into the Adirondack landscape nestled amongst tall pines, overlooking majestic mountain peaks and surrounded by sparkling water.

Chapel Island opens its summer season Sunday June 30 and continues through September 1, 2019. Chapel Island is located at the south end of Upper Saranac Lake . Boat transportation is available every Sunday morning. The Chapel Bound pontoon boat leaves from Indian Carry off Rt. 3 at the end of Old Dock Road where you will find ample parking for your car. The first boat trip leaves for the picturesque ride at 9:15 AM and again at 9:35 AM. You may bring your own boat if you happen to be on Upper Saranac Lake . The boat driver drops their passengers off at the Chapel dock, and then anchors off shore. A shuttle transports the driver back to the dock. The service begins at 10 AM (new time for 2020). After the service, the Chapel Bound will return you to the dock at Indian Carry.

We invite you to join with the blend of faiths who express a warm and gracious welcome.
