Awestruck & Grateful

Dear Enews Friends,

I’m so proud of the way our church rallies to support those in need. Last weekend, all Willow campuses, including our kids and students, helped pack Christmas gifts for every inmate in Illinois. These packs are more than just snacks and books—they bring hope to those who often feel forgotten. After receiving a pack last year, one inmate wrote, “I want you to know how thankful I am. I really do believe God was looking out for me (as He always does) when I received your gifts.”

Please be praying for those who will receive these gifts in the coming weeks, that they would sense God’s nearness and love for them.

This weekend, we continueAwestruckwith a message from Albert Tate. He is a gifted and passionate teacher, and I can’t wait to learn from him.

We also open our new Promiseland spaces this weekend. If you have kids, or know kids, be sure to bring them—they’ll have a fantastic experience! Learn morehere.
