Moving In Party
This Saturday, November 21 starting at 11:00 a.m. we at Chain of Lakes Church are having a “Moving In Party” at the Senior Center, 1189 Main Street in Lino Lakes. North Springs Church, the congregation who was worshipping at the Senior Center, celebrated their first service at their new location this past Sunday, November 15. They have moved all of their equipment and furnishings out of the Senior Center. The place certainly looked different last night when we gathered for our Alpha gathering.
Now we at Chain of Lakes have the opportunity to get the space ready for our use.
A number of activities will make up the “Moving In Party.” We will have a scavenger hunt for children and youth which will take place outside the Senior Center. The weather forecast for Saturday is very promising. We adults will assemble the 75 beautiful chairs that we have ordered for our worship space. The chairs are scheduled to arrive this Friday. (Thanks to the many Presbyterian churches and individuals who are making pledges to purchase for the chairs. We are still collecting these pledges and hope that the area Presbyterian churches and individuals will pay for all 75.)
While the kids are on their scavenger hunt, I intend to gather the parents and talk about future Children’s Ministry at Chain of Lakes. We will order pizza and as we are eating all of us will talk about getting organized for our first worship service on Sunday, December 6th at 10:30 a.m.
To know how much pizza to order participants from Chain of Lakes can help us by letting us know either way if they are attending.
I’m looking forward to a beautiful day on Saturday—a day of moving in, planning for the future, eating pizza, and watching our children have a blast!
