Reset Your Heart

A new year beckons. In winter’s midst, we pause. We invite you to go deeper, to connect, to be inspired. Reset this January.

For many, the start of a new calendar year presents an opportunity to pause, step back, and assess each area of our lives. Willow Creek's weekend series, Reset will help you make strides in your life and relationships in 2018. "Each year, I make a conscious choice to reflect on different parts of my life: my heart, faith, family, community, and finances, just to name a few," says Teaching Pastor Steve Carter. "It has become a spiritual practice in which I surrender and ask God to guide me in each area. This year, you have the opportunity to press 'reset.' Commit to joining us—who knows what God might do?"
