LCR Members & Friends,
Now that the school year has (finally) ended and summer is getting started we want to make sure you don’t miss out on all the great things happening at LCR. Pastor Denny Wright has officially begun as our interim senior pastor and will be preaching this Sunday, June 9th and Wednesday, June 12. We’ve got lots of great guest speakers lined up this summer, too, so take a look at who is going to be with us in June and mark your calendars!
You can see all the other great things going on this month and into July right here. Don’t forget to follow the church on Facebook and Instagram to get even more info about what’s coming up!

Feel free to invite outside friends as we have conversations about topics relevant to anyone. This week we will discuss “A Father’s Power.”
Summer Novel Conversations // We’ve put together a great list of books for your summer reading. Each of these books can be borrowed at local libraries or purchased in a variety of formats.
