Lakeside Chautauqua and our extended community are concerned about the health and well-being of persons everywhere affected by the worldwide pandemic and social injustice.

Lakeside remains committed to its mission to enrich the quality of life for all people. We sincerely desire to be part of creating a future where fear and injustice give way to an equitable society where all can live healthy in peace and harmony, without fear.

Please join us in lifting our voices in prayer and lighting a candle for peace, justice and healing at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 7 at the Steele Memorial Bandstand.

We will join in prayer with concerned citizens across the country following the tragic death of George Floyd.

We will continue to pray for all those involved in seeking a cure, caregivers everywhere and all those affected by COVID-19.

The vigil will be led by the Rev. Dr. Charles Yoost, Director of Religious Life & Church Outreach, and the Rev. Karen Graham, Pastor at the Lakeside United Methodist Church. Candles will be available for all participants. Please join us as we pray for our community, nation and world during this time of global pandemic and social unrest.
