Two ingredients for growth

It’s easy to settle into the routine of life—wake up, work, spend time with family or friends, prepare for the next day, relax (if you’re lucky), sleep, repeat. In the midst of an overscheduled life, how do you actually grow?



It takes humility to acknowledge you have areas that require growth. Are you willing to look at your life and see the places that need refinement? Will you prayerfully ask God to search your heart and reveal any ways you can grow? 



Maybe you see the areas you need to grow in—maybe you wish you saw them a little less—but what now? Take a risk and take a step. Rearrange your schedule, or even ask a friend to attend a class with you.


Willow offers classes, workshops, groups, and resources to help you take your next step toward growth. You can find hope after loss at REBUILD or freedom from the things that hold you back at RECOVER; gain control over your finances at Budgeting Made Easy or Financial Peace University; deepen your marriage at a new marriage workshop called Unpacking Us; or grow in your relationship with God and others at a Women’s Daytime Class or GroupLaunch. View all upcoming classes here.

If you’re not sure what your next step should be, we can help! Simply call 847-765-5000, 9 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday–Friday, and ask to speak with a response pastor. They are ready to listen and help you discover a class, workshop, or group to help you grow.
