Future Building at Chain of Lakes

The people of Chain of Lakes are working hard at creating a building on the church property, which is located just east of Malmborg’s Garden Center on 125th Ave NE in Blaine. A building plan has been approved by the Session, the governing body of the church. The building plan includes a high school sized gym, a worship space, space for children’s ministry, and offices. A capital fundraising group is meeting weekly to raise money for the building. Plans are to break ground in March 2020.
