Fresh Start: Renewing Body, Mind & Spirit

Got a friend who's exploring faith and isn't ready to come to church yet? Invite them to Fresh Start, offered at 4:13 Fitness in Palatine. Or if it's just you, or you and some friends, that would be great too! We'll explore what God thinks about us--ALL of us--body, mind & spirit. Together, we will discover what the Bible says about how our bodies and our spiritual journeys are connected.

This 6-week workshop involves Bible study, small group discussion and gentle movement. Join us!

MOPS at Willow Creek

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) encourages, equips, and helps women become better moms. MOPS International connects mothers all over the world to a community of women right in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry, and embrace the journey of parenting infants and preschoolers. 

Willow's MOPS groups are a safe place for women to be authentic with their successes and their struggles; to be better equipped in the vital roles they play; and to find their identity by journeying alongside one another. MOPS meets at Willow's South Barrington campus on select Friday mornings, September through May. Childcare is available via registration. Learn more and register here.
