Getting married at Willow

Getting married at Willow We are excited to walk your pre-marriage journey with you! There are three steps to the premarital process for those who call Willow Creek their home church.

Step 1: Attend our marriage workshop.
In this workshop, couples will learn the values from scripture that we believe are the foundation of building a lasting marriage. Teaching along with couple discussion through questions and assessments will bring couples to a place of clearly knowing their strengths and areas of growth for a strong marriage. Registration coming soon!

Step 2: Online Couple Assessment and Personal Profiles
After attending the marriage workshop, couples will take an online relational assessment called The Couples Check Up and each will be asked to complete a personal profile. Completing both the assessment and profiles will move you toward the next step of the process.

Step 3: Conversations with a marriage coordinator
This is the final step. Each couple is going to be entering their marriage relationship with new learnings from the workshop and online assessment. Couples leave these conversations knowing we are here to champion their upcoming marriage relationship.

To learn more about the pre-marital process and planning a wedding in Willow's South Barrington Chapel, contact Nancy Wendt at 224-512-1163 or [email protected].

When couples complete all 3 steps, they are ready to be connected with their wedding coordinator and wedding officiate.
