Chamber to Host Ribbon Cutting at Parkview Christian Church – New Lenox

New Lenox, IL (January 16, 2017) — The New Lenox Chamber of Commerce excited to help welcome Parkview Christian Church to the New Lenox community with a ribbon cutting on Thursday, February 23, 2017. The ribbon cutting will take place at 4:00 PM at 2121 S Schoolhouse Road, New Lenox, IL 60451.

Parkview Christian Church is a multi-site church of nearly 9,000 people in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, with campuses in Orland Park, Homer Glen, and most recently, New Lenox, Illinois. Parkview's multi-site strategy comes from the idea that people are more likely to invite their neighborhood friends to church if they don't have to drive more than 20 minutes to get there. With campuses spread out across the region, this also helps the church become more engaged in the needs of the local area, and helps people find community and support close to their own homes. When land became available in New Lenox and the distance was in the 20-minute range from the nearest campus, New Lenox became the obvious choice for Parkview's third location.

With a rich history that spans 65 years, Parkview is a "come as you are" church led by senior pastor Tim Harlow, and is committed to maintaining a culture that welcomes everyone. Because of that, Parkview is made up of former gang leaders and business owners, ex-strippers and soccer moms, the disillusioned and the unchurched, and people from every walk of life.

Believing that church should never be boring, fun and laughter are core Parkview values and the weekend experience reflects that. Services include excellence in music that is edgy, current, and uplifting, and teaching that is relevant, relatable, and biblical. Parkview is also committed to quality adult and children’s programs that provide not only the opportunity for spiritual growth, but also the opportunity to develop relationships and serve together, making a difference in the lives of people in the local communities and around the world.
