Young Adults at Willow South Barrington

The Young Adults Ministry exists to reach 18-30 somethings in our community that are far from God, give them a place to belong, offer opportunities to grow in their faith towards becoming a fully devoted follower of God, and help each person identify their unique spiritual gift and then use that gift to serve our church and community."

During the Week: The Gathering

Join us every Thursday at 7pm for The Gathering. We will have free food, a DJ and conversation groups. Free childcare will also be available (click here to RSVP your child/children.) We hope to see you and your friends at The Gathering!



On the Weekends: Sections

During Willow South Barrington worship services, sit with other young adults in Section 203 in the Main Auditorium.
