Celebration of Hope is Willow Creek’s annual global compassion campaign that seeks to bring awareness, engagement, and change through partnerships with churches across the world.
HOPE FOR KIDS is this year’s Celebration of Hope theme. We’ll focus on supporting projects from our partners that have a direct impact on children. Together, we want to eliminate barriers for children around the world to reach their God-given potential.
All gifts, no matter the amount, will be used to catalyze the work of our global church partners on behalf of children! There are two ways to give:
• Give Online at WillowNorthShore.org. Click here to give online - be sure to designate Celebration of Hope under "Giving Type."
• Write at check to Willow Creek North Shore and designate "COH" on the memo line. You can drop your check in the offering at church on Sunday morning or mail it to Willow Creek North Shore at 2200 Shermer Rd, Glenview IL 60026.
