Exploring and applying God's Word to our lives.

Every Wednesday night the Willow South Barrington community gathers at 7 p.m. in the Lakeside Auditorium for a church-wide worship gathering.

Immediately following the worship time, you may choose to remain in the Lakeside Auditorium for deep, chapter-by-chapter teaching from one of Willow’s teaching pastors or attend one of the many electives designed to help you foster right relationships with God, self, and others.

Breakthrough | Six Essentials for Liberated Living
Begins January 4
We see the person we want to be, even think we could be, but we then get stuck in reality. What’s it take to have genuine breakthrough? Scripture’s book of Romans gives a roadmap for breakthrough that isn’t rooted in the latest self-help scheme, but rooted in the richness of the gospel. Join us as we discover six essentials for liberated living that will both both draw you closer to Christ, and give you practical next steps you can practice in your daily life.

Is Willow Creek your home church?

Mark your calendars for a Willow core night for all who consider Willow Creek their home church. The night includes church-wide updates, an update on ways you can belong at Willow, and a celebration of volunteers. 7 p.m., Wednesday, February 1 in the Main Auditorium in place of regular Midweek teaching and programs.

Head, Heart, and Soul | Theology for Real Life
Begins February 8
René Descartes famously said, "I think, therefore I am.” But what do we think? How do we think? And, does it really matter? Cultivate depth in your life as we discover the richness and the reality of systematic theology for our daily lives.




Classes & Workshops start this week!

Growing as a follower of Christ isn’t measured by how much of God’s Word you know; it’s measured by how you live out your faith in your relationships, day-in and day-out. Midweek is all about helping you engage with God holistically—in every relationship in your life. Willow offers classes and workshops in the following categories to help you take the next step in your journey:
