"I love that Chain of Lakes community meets anybody wherever they are in their personal faith life".
"Chain of Lakes is fresh, new, and beginning something contagious - spreading God's love to one another - no strings attached"!!
"I feel proud that a diverse population of age groups, family structures, and cultures are represented at our church family. What a blessing".
Who Are We?
Chain of Lakes Church began to form in February 2009 with seven families who were interested in starting a new church. Since that time, we have grown to 35 families, hired four staff members, enjoy dynamic worship every Sunday and other quality programs throughout the week, and we are in the process of acquiring property in the Lakes development in Blaine.
The congregation has developed a Purpose Statement and eight Core Values that are the foundation for the church. During worship a newcomer will discover between thirty and fifty people who are glad to be together worshipping God. We worship in a blended way—molding ancient and contemporary forms of worship. Children stay for the first part of worship and then attend Sunday school after a Time for Children led by our pastor. We enjoy fellowship together after worship. We have made Children’s ministry a priority in our congregation. One of our core values is “Investing in Future Generations.” To live this out we have hired a Children’s Ministry Director and offer Sunday School year round, and offer a variety of children and youth activities.
