Section communities help make our big church feel small

Join a group of people who connect weekly by sitting in the same section of the Main Auditorium during a weekend worship service, gathering monthly to share a meal together and connect more deeply, and volunteering together to serve our church and community.

In addition to meeting weekly for the service, section communities also have a monthly gathering where they share a meal together and connect more deeply.

Regional campuses offer small groups and community groups to help you grow deeper with God and others. View your location to learn more!

How do I get connected in a Willow South Barrington section community?

  1. Choose a seating section where you would like to connect by viewing the map below.
  2. Meet the section leader. You can spot him or her standing at the back of the section after the service, wearing a black lanyard. The section leader can introduce you to others in that section and send you email updates on activities in their community.
  3. Attend section gatherings to get connected and involved in the community.

How do small groups relate to section communities?

Many people at Willow are part of a small group—a gathering of friends that meet regularly to grow spiritually and walk alongside one another in good times and bad. Small groups often sit together during church as part of the same section community. The easiest way to get connected in a small group is to get to begin by getting to know others near you in a section community.
