Get Connected 

At Willow Creek Wheaton, we believe life change happens best in circles, not in rows. At the core of our church is a dedication to building genuine relationships with one another. We meet regularly in small groups to build relationships, encourage one another and dive deep into scripture. 

Several small groups meet weekly or biweekly throughout the Wheaton area, and span a wide range of ages, interests, and life stages. Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey, there’s a place for you. Check out the open small groups below - click to contact the small group leader and get connected!

What We're Studying

The Journey Through Luke & Acts

We invite you to join us this fall for Journey Through Luke & Acts. This 40-day reading experience will help you understand the context and meaning of this first century text and reveal how it can shape your life today. Books will be available next Sunday, September 24 for a suggested donation of $5. Join us as we set aside 15 minutes to read each day and journey together through the life and ministry of Jesus.  Check back here on September 25 for online content, audio content, small group resources and more!
