Men at Willow Creek Crystal Lake

Willow Creek helps provide the support necessary to equip men to discover who they are, to focus on God’s role in their lives, and to “do life” in the company of one another.

Through small groups, mid-sized gatherings, and men’s breakfasts, men at Willow walk alongside each other as they grow in their spiritual and relational journeys.

Willow Crystal Lake information

We believe that transformational spiritual growth happens best in community. At Willow Crystal Lake, men can connect and grow through various groups, events, and Bible studies. 

Small Groups
We encourage every person to join a small group! This life and your journey with Jesus are not meant to be done in isolation. Get connected with a group here.

Men's Breakfast 
3rd Saturday of each month
8:30–10 a.m.

Men's Breakfast is a gathering of men of all ages who want to grow in their relationship with Christ and build relationships with other guys. Under typical circumstances, we gather, eat breakfast, and hear an encouragement or challenge from a speaker. A suggested donation of $10 is requested to cover the costs of breakfast and materials, as well as sponsoring a child through World Vision. Currently, Men's Breakfast is meeting online. For more information and to RSVP, please contact Don.

Men's Bible Study
Mondays, October 13 – November 24
7–8:30 p.m.

Studying the bible isn't just about learning information, it's about understanding who God is, what he made us for, and how we can live life to the fullest. In this weekly study, join other men online as we explore relevant topics of today and find biblical wisdom for everyday living. There is no need to register. Join us! Details here.
