Select a Willow Creek Location

Find a Location:

The first step in getting started at Willow Creek is discovering the location you'll call home! Willow Creek has 8 locations around Chicagoland, including our Spanish-speaking congregation, Casa de Luz. Each location offers weekend services, programs for kids & students, small groups for adults, opportunities to volunteer, and support through tough seasons. Click here to view all Willow Creek locations—or take a look at what our services are like on Willow Creek TV.

A Place to Belong:

At Willow Creek South Barrington weekend services, many of us sit in the same Main Auditorium sections each week, providing a place to belong in medium-sized groups called Sections. Section Communities are organized around age groups, common interests, or the ministries in which we serve. If you are a guest at Willow South Barrington, start with Section 104 (front and center) which is designated for Willow Guests during all weekend services.
