Celebration of Hope Is Here!

This weekend, April 22/23, we kick off Celebration of Hope, Willow Creek’s annual global compassion campaign to bring awareness, engagement, and change through partnerships with churches across the world. Over the next three weeks, engage your heart and mind in our world’s toughest issues—and play a part in bringing all-encompassing hope to those in need of physical, emotional, and spiritual assistance.

One weekend, one million seed packs. Everyone is needed to reach our goal! 

Bring hope tangibly by packing seeds that will be sent to Africa and Latin America to provide food and a source of income for those in under-resourced areas. More than 20,000 volunteers are needed to achieve the goal of filling one million seed packs in one weekend. Bring your family and friends, and help transform the lives of thousands. Sign up today! 

Engage your heart—expand your view
