What to ExpectIf you’re new to Willow Crystal Lake we hope you’ll feel at home, even if you’ve never been to church before.
At our services, we present the ageless truths of the Bible in a compelling, easy-to-understand format—through spoken word, multimedia presentations, progressive music, dance, and practical messages.
Dress casually and come as you are. Whether you’re a spiritual seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God, or you already have a mature relationship with Christ, you will find a home here at Willow Crystal Lake.
Sundays at 9 and 11 a.m.
