Nuclear family. Blended family. Non-traditional family. Friends who are family. Church family.
Family comes in many forms, and not one of them is without its foibles. As human beings, we each have our own histories and hurts, needs and neuroses, so all of our relationships—even our closest ones (especially our closest ones)—have the capacity to fight, frighten, and fail us.
But at their best, those relationships can also comfort our pain, carry our burdens, and coax the very best out of us. Families of all kinds can remind all of us that none of us are alone, and can even give us glimpses of our great God.
But how can we do family better? How do we parent better? How do we honor our parents better? How do we listen, forgive, and heal better? How can we better understand the forces that shape and shatter our relationships? How do we move past the complicated histories of our families to build better legacies?
For the next several weeks we’re going to dive headlong into some of the most difficult challenges facing our families and relationships, holding them up to the wisdom of the bible in order to find new ways to navigate our most up to date issues.
Along the way we’re going to ask you to weigh in with your questions and concerns. We’re going to honor moms and dads. And we’re going to have some fun!

What to Expect
If you’re new to Willow Creek or are considering joining us for a service at one of our seven regional locations, 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 drama, multimedia presentations, contemporary music 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.
With the multiple locations, the message of our service will be either video-streamed from our South Barrington location (on a 1-week delay) or taught live. Each worship service typically last about 75 minutes.
Willow Creek offers interpretation in Chinese, Korean, Polish, Spanish, and ASL during the 11:15 a.m. service. Click here to learn more.
We hope you’ll feel at home, even if you’ve never been to church before.
