Life after Loss

When a deep loss happens, where can you turn?

REBUILD workshops offers comfort, hope, and practical tools for healing for those who have experienced a significant loss, such as the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage, a stillbirth, infertility, or a miscarriage.

In REBUILD, you'll experience:

  • Compelling, practical large-group teaching from therapists, pastors, and teachers who have navigated seasons of loss
  • Safe, confidential small-group discussion led by compassionate leaders--alongside fellow participants who have experienced a similar loss
  • Practical tools for healthy grieving and spiritual guidance for understanding where God fits in your loss

Volunteer for Child and Teen Grief

Grief counseling: Willow Creek’s Counselor Referral Network (CRN) includes a number of skilled, compassionate therapists who specialize in helping people process a significant loss. Learn more.

We are available to listen, pray with you, and help you to discern potential next steps.

Some areas that we have helped to navigate include: spiritual questions, relational conflict, financial crisis, emotional distress, and professional or community referrals.

Child and Teen Grief program

Kids tend to grieve differently than adults. Offered through our Willow South Barrington location, this nine-week program offered in conjunction with REBUILD helps kids who are grieving the death of a parent, sibling, close relative, or friend.

What Happens? Children engage in age-targeted activities that help them express and process their loss. Games, drama, art, journaling, storytelling, and imaginative play are led by compassionate leaders who understand kids and loss.
