Engaging in the SURRENDER | LISTEN | OBEY process requires us to invest our whole heart, soul, mind and strength. While we must first decide to do this as an individual, it is often beneficial to work through this process in community.
That is why we have created a series of TRANSFORM studies.
Willow Chicago will be offering pop-up Community Groups during our TRANSFORM campaign that will be going through 3 weeks of written and video curriculum that will help prepare your heart to Surrender, Listen, and Obey. Sign for one of these community groups in the lobby after service on September 3rd or September 10th, or you can email Community Life Pastor Glenn Gilliam at [email protected] to sign up!
This study was designed to help our junior high and high school students evaluate their commitment to Christ and challenge them to ask themselves where they need to Surrender, Listen, and Obey to God in their lives. Contact Student Ministries Pastor Alaina Garcia at [email protected] for a copy of this devotional.
The Promiseland TRANSFORM devotional is an interactive study that families can do together as we journey through the TRANSFORM campaign as a church. Families will learn how God wants to use them to make a difference for Jesus in Chicago through our church. This book will guide families into continuing the conversation at home. Email Discipleship Pastor Rick Wood for a hard copy of this devotional at [email protected] .
PRAY FROM WHERE YOU ARE
In this season, we are joining together as a church to pray for the growth and transformation as individuals and as a community. As we move forward with the transition to our new church home, we believe praying together will strengthen our faith and open our hearts for God to TRANSFORM us.
We invite you to join our church community in seeking God’s heart as we SURRENDER our lives to His will. Sing up for the 2:42 mailing list to receive an email containing a prayer request to bring before the Lord every Wednesday. Wherever you are, your prayer will become part of a collective group coming before our Lord.
The goal is simple: seek His face, SURRENDER our hearts ,LISTEN for His direction and OBEY His will. As we give ourselves to our God and King and position our hearts to hear His whispers, then collectively we move toward being His hands and feet to our community and city.
You can read the emails below as we journey through the weeks.
