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.
