CELEBRATION OF HOPE 2019
Celebration of Hope is Willow Creek’s annual campaign to bring awareness, engagement, and change for our global partners who serve the needs of our neighbors around the world. Willow Creek partners with established organizations that work through networks of local churches to help them best address their communities’ needs.
This year, we are calling for 100% of our church to engage in Celebration of Hope by going out into the community to serve, growing in your understanding of poverty and injustice, and giving toward the amazing work that God is doing around the world.
We want 100% of our church to reach outside our walls and GO into the community to serve others locally and globally. Together as a church we have the opportunity to GO and share God's hope and love through various acts of service.
We want 100% of our church to learn about global poverty and injustice, understand God's heart of compassion, and discover how our partner churches around the world are helping communities flourish.
God is doing amazing work around the world through our partners, and you have an opportunity to use your finances to help them make an even bigger impact for God’s kingdom! No matter the amount, our hope is that each one of us can prayerfully give a sacrificial gift for the work of our global partners.

WILLOW CREEK 5K
The Willow Creek 5K, which has traditionally been held alongside Celebration of Hope in the spring, is being moved to fall this year with the Global Serving Teams Kickoff when more favorable weather conditions are expected. As always, we will run/walk together in solidarity to support Willow’s global partners. More details coming soon!
