Support Groups

Moving from fear to hope

A diagnosis of cancer or OCD can trigger an avalanche of questions and feelings:

"I can't believe it."

"I'm scared."

"What's treatment like?"

"Is God punishing me?"

"How will this affect my family?"

"I don't want to die!"

But Willow Creek's support groups can help you survive and thrive during your journey. Whether you are directly or indirectly affected by a cancer or OCD diagnosis, Willow Creek's support groups are a safe place for individuals—and their families—to share with one another, support one another, and learn together from their experiences.

Cancer Support

Cancer Support helps participants cope with the emotional, spiritual, relational, and physical challenges that accompany cancer. Through large-group teaching, a devotional time, and small-group discussion, participants can experience joy, hope, and healing in this caring, Christ-centered community.

Monthly meetings

Cancer Support meets from 10–11:30 a.m. on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, in Room B205 at Willow Creek’s South Barrington campus, unless otherwise noted on lobby monitors.

OCD Support

OCD Support is a safe and confidential community for those struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder—and for family and friends seeking to learn how to best support them. OCD Support offers encouragement, support, and understanding through Christ-centered Bible study, prayer, and community with other adults who have been there.

Bi-weekly meetings

OCD Support meets from 1:15–3:15 p.m. on the second and fourth Sunday of every month, in Room F175 at Willow Creek’s South Barrington campus, unless otherwise noted on lobby monitors.
