On the Weekends
We invite you to be our guest at a weekend service at Willow Creek South Barrington. Each service features compelling, biblical teaching; powerful music; creative elements utilizing the arts; fantastic programs for kids and students—and plenty of opportunities to get involved.
New Series: All the Things
Being human is messy. We may be fearless one moment and afraid The next. We celebrate, and we mourn. Sometimes we shout for joy, sometimes in frustration. In the Psalms, we find a safe place to bring all the things we feel and face. Over the next few weeks, we will lay aside our pretend personas and be our authentic selves with one another and, above all, with God.
February 1 & 2 | All the Doubts, Psalm 22
February 8/9 | Matt Wright
February 15/16 | Steve Gillen
February 22/23 | Megan Marshman: All the Love
February 29/March 1 | Eugene Cho

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.
