Teen Challenge at Chain of Lakes Church
I want to invite the community of Blaine, Lino Lakes, Centerville, Lexington & Circle Pines to a marvelous worship service that Chain of Lakes is sharing this Sunday. We have a marvelous worship service planned. We have the privilege of hosting “Teen Challenge.” Teen Challenge is helps teens and adults gain freedom from chemical addictions and other life-controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. On Sunday the people from Teen Challenge will sing for us and share their stories of being restored to God through this program. Their stories are quite amazing and remarkable. If you have a friend who has struggled with some type of addiction, I encourage you to invite that person to worship this Sunday.
This is the second time that Teen Challenge has been in worship at Chain of Lakes Church. The last time I was touched by the honesty and authenticity of the sharing about addictions. We have people at Chain of Lakes who are authentically recovering from addictions. The stories of people at Teen Challenge happen everywhere.
After worship we will enjoy a meal. This will be a chance to continue the conversation with the people in Teen Challenge. On Sunday we will encourage people to give financially to the ministry of Teen Challenge. Just write a check to Chain of Lakes and mark on the check that the donation is for Teen Challenge.
Worship will begin at 10:30 a.m. The address of our worship site is 1189 Main Street in Lino Lakes. A map can be found at the Chain of Lakes web site at www.colpres.org.
