Lakeside’s programming is built upon the four pillars of Chautauqua: religion, education, cultural arts and recreation. The religion pillar hosts a number of programs and activities, including Sunday Worship Services, Faith for Living Hour, Wednesday Family Picnics and Vespers by the Lake, as well as children, youth and teen ministry.
