Promiseland Renovations are Underway

Pardon our dust!

Willow Creek is committed to serving kids and students through fantastic weekly programs and the investment of volunteer leaders and staff. We want to have thriving kids and student ministries, which includes giving them fantastic spaces to meet in. We are ready to dive into the largest Promiseland remodel in Willow's history, which will include some changes in the months ahead. But we are absolutely determined to provide the best experience for our kids and families every weekend throughout the renovation season.

Promiseland kids are meeting in the following spaces:

  • Kindergarten–Grade 5 will meet in the Atrium
  • Infants–Age 4/Pre-K will meet on the lower level

Read additional details about parking, signage, rooms, and check-in/check out below.

Thank you for your continued partnership!  


Willow Creek Trades & Engineering is leading a Saturday work team to help make history at Willow South Barrington. This team is building and preparing the new spaces in Promiseland for kids now and for years to come. If you would like to join the team send an email to Eileen Walsh for additional details.


We are updating Promiseland signs throughout Willow to reflect new classroom locations. If you are confused at any point, please look for a Promiseland staff member or volunteer, and we will gladly direct you to where you need to go.


Most of our Promiseland classrooms are changing locations. Only the 3–5-year-olds will remain in their current rooms. For all other ages, please note the location changes below:
