I want to encourage everyone who lives in the Twin Cities to come to the Celebration of New Property tomorrow night, Wednesday, August 22 at 6:30 p.m. This is a significant event in the life of our new church, as it will be the first event that we have done on the property that the Presbytery has purchased for Chain of Lakes New Church.
The property can easily be found by going to the intersection of Main Street and Harpers. We will have directional signs clearly marking the way.
We’re looking forward to having Tom Ryan, the Mayor of Blaine, and Chaz Ruark, the Executive Presbyter from our Presbytery will also speak. John Ivers will give a short history of Chain of Lakes. Ward Sessing will share a short history of how this property was acquired. I will give a talk on the vision we have for blessing the people in the area from this property. The Praise Band from Presbyterian Church of the Way will be singing. We will also be unveiling new signs and a cross that will be on the property. When we are finished we will eat ice cream.
Please bring a backpack filled with school supplies for the children at Lino Lakes Elementary STEM. You can access a list of the school supplies at: http://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/684/VBS_Backpack_mission_2012.pdf
There is only one first event that ever takes place. This is the first event on this new property. It wouldn’t surprise me if folks will still remember this event in ten to twenty years. You can be part of this excitement by being present.
