Celebration of Hope

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.

Pray Generously

Sign up to receive the Celebration of Hope Daily Devotional as we dive deeper into the Psalms.
