One Million Seed Packs in One Weekend

From April 28 to 30, more than 20,000 volunteers at all Willow Creek campuses will link arms to fill one million seed packs for our partners in Africa—and we need you! "It will take almost every person in our church to pull off our goal of filling one million seed packs in one weekend," says Senior Pastor Bill Hybels. "As I remind you each year, if you are too busy to pack seeds, you are too busy! We really do need you. This simple serve will bring life and hope to thousands who so desperately need it."

Seed packing serving times are offered this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with the greatest needs are 4:30–6:30 p.m. on Friday and 9–11 a.m. on Saturday.

Celebration of Hope: Week Two

Celebration of Hope continues this weekend, April 29/30, with an interview featuring Jeremy Courtney, the founder and director of the Preemptive Love Coalition and a message by Teaching Pastor Steve Carter. Preemptive Love works in Iraq and Syria, caring for those caught in the middle of war. Watch this quick video from Jeremy!

Explore the Main Lobby before and after weekend services to experience interactive exhibits showing the work of our partner ministries around the world and the incredible ways people are overcoming poverty and injustice. Each attendee this weekend will also receive a special gift: a bar of soap made by Syrian refugee women. Come hear the incredible stories of those who are finding hope in the most adverse circumstances!
