Celebration on new property at Chain of Lakes!
The following Press Release was sent to the Press today. Please join us for this milestone event at Chain of Lakes Church!
Chain of Lakes Church, a new Presbyterian church forming in the Blaine and Lino Lakes area, will celebrate the acquisition of an 8.9 acre parcel of land at the northern edge of the Lakes Development in Blaine on Wednesday, August 22 at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to the Celebration.
The property can be found from the intersection of Main (125th Ave.) and Harpers by going south on Harpers, taking an immediate right on Marina Circle Drive and then turning right on Edison. Signs to the property will be posted.
“The acquisition of this property is a significant development for our new church,” said Pastor Paul H. Moore, Organizing Pastor for Chain of Lakes Church. We are so pleased that our larger Presbytery has partnered with the people of our new church to acquire this property. Even more important we can’t wait to see how we can bless the people in this area. This celebration event is an opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to the people of the Lakes Development.
Chain of Lakes Church began with seven families in 2009. Since then they have grown to about 40 families.
The new church focuses on helping the people of the community. This past year the congregation adopted Lino Lakes Elementary STEM school, sponsoring parenting seminars, painting the inside of the school, and participating in a mentor program.
“To focus on the needs of the area we want to invite everyone who attends the Celebration to bring a backpack of supplies for Lino Lakes Elementary STEM school,” said Moore.
The Celebration will include special speakers, music, and ice cream at the end. Tom Ryan, Mayor of Blaine, Rev. Chaz Ruark, Executive Presbyter of the Twin Cities Area, will attend along with other community and religious leaders. The new church will also announce plans for a new worship location near the property this fall.
The new church has rented a large tent and will have plenty of room for parking on the property. In case of inclement weather the Celebration will be held at Northpoint Elementary in Blaine.
