Come as You are
LCR is a friendly, welcoming place. Whether in shorts, jeans or business casual, and no matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome.
Where to Park
Our main entrance is just off the corner of 151st St and Central Ave. in Oak Forest. The parking lot is adjacent to the building with a circular drive for assisting those who need the benefit of handicapped parking and drop-off.

Please do not feel obligated to give an offering your first time here, either. You are our guest. Relax and take time to worship God.
