We Are Here
Eugene Cho launches a new message series this Sunday, August 11. We Are Here, an 11-week series, focuses on four characteristics that uniquely represent us as a church: serving, worship, prayer, and sharing (evangelism).
“I’m tremendously excited about this series,” says Steve Gillen, acting senior pastor. “These four characteristics reflect what it means to be a follower of Christ—both as a church and as individuals. We’ll spend a few weeks unpacking each characteristic as a pathway toward spiritual growth."

We work to create environments and experiences where you can encounter God in the midst of your life.
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.
