Give the Gift of Hope

Every year we mobilize our church to pack Christmas gifts for every incarcerated person in the state of Illinois and beyond. The gifts are full of hope and encouragement with items like a devotional book, snacks, and activities. Take time this December to assemble Hope Packs, learn about the systemic injustices that people face in our country, and provide much-needed encouragement to those who are often overlooked. 

Save the date: December 4

Jingle Jam

Willow Kids is hosting a special Christmas celebration big enough for the whole family! Join us for Jingle Jam, a program with games, music, fun surprises, and even a mystery to solve. This event is completely FREE! No registration is required, just show up with family and friends for an awesome Christmas experience!

Year-End Giving

Jesus established the church to be a force for transformative good in the world—a group of people committed to meeting needs, showing compassion, and sharing a message of hope. We believe our purpose as a church is to do just that.

By giving to our general fund or giving above-and-beyond to our Year-End Giving initiative, you can fuel life change and transformation in our neighborhoods and around the world.

For the Kids!

During Christmas services, Willow Kids provides a fun, engaging environment for children birth–preschool. Kids in kindergarten and older are invited to join their families in the Main Auditorium for an age-appropriate Christmas service!

Following Christmas and New Years, our Willow Kids and Willow Students programming resumes January 8.
