At Willow Chicago, we believe that true spiritual growth happens best in environments of authentic community, and that Community Groups are the best places to discover such environments — spaces designed to help you truly connect with others and grow in your faith.

Our Community Groups are committed to being:

  • Intentional: Meeting together at least twice a month

  • Relational: A place where you can connect and share with a group of 8-12 people

  • Transformational: Growth in your relationship with God and others through scripture, prayer, sharing and serving

To learn more about Community Life at Willow Chicago email Pastor Glenn Gilliam or email the group leader directly.
