I LOVE calling this place home. It is so welcoming and a "come as you are" kind of church. You can wear blue jeans and a t-shirt, all nationalities are welcome, and the message each weekend is so down to Earth and speaks the truths of the Bible.

And even though it is so large, there are so many ways to get connected through small groups for a more intimate setting. I have done the Wednesday Woman's Bible study and made some life-long friendships and learned so much about the Bible.

My kids go to Promiseland, which is the Sunday school for the young kids, and they LOVE it! It really helps me in raising my kids in a God honoring way, but also gives them the kind of "faith that sticks", so that they will continue to grow spiritually because they want to and not because anyone else wants them to. My husband is Orthodox and my father is Catholic (still teaches CCD each week) and even they will go with us each week, before they go to their church, because it doesn't interfere with religion, it is strictly straight out of the Bible and all about Jesus Christ (the same things their church speak of).
If you are looking for a welcoming, loving place that accepts sinners like you and I freely, this is your place. It is a place that shows the love and grace of God, what every Christian deserves.
I am so blessed to have found it!!!!

WCCC has it all, great worship, relevant Christ centered teaching by gifted speakers, and support for any life challenge you may be going through. Willow continues to be a very outward focused church that supports ministries throughout the world. The Willow Creek Association comes along side member churches world wide and helps provide resources and instruction when needed. The Willow Creek Leadership Conference encourages and inspires thousands of church leaders each year. Get involved, join a small group, a serving group, or meet with other creekers near your home and you'll soon discover how small and intimate this large church can be.

This is a ridiculous mega-church in the Chicago suburbs. The building reminds me of a mall... I mean it has a coffee shop and escalators for goodness sakes! Mass is often somewhat like a big performace--they have actors, musicians, etc. The Christmas services are extremely popular and you have to get tickets long beforehand. If this is the kind of church you are looking for, it has everything. It definitely appeals to a certain kind of person. I think it's a good place to go once in awhile, but to me, it lacks the more personal, intimate feel of a smaller church.

Willow Creek is one of the largest churches in America, and is a great resource in the NW suburbs. Bill Hybels is a world-renowned speaker, author, and pastor. It's a place where you can find God, and find people to live life with. Check it out.

Willow changed my life and I am forever grateful. It is full of truth and grace. I highly recommend a visit if you are looking for a church home or seeking what Christianity is all about.

The suburbs do not resemble the holy places where the Bible is set and the sermons are not in Aramaic. I would think that they could at least learn Akkadian, but no. I read that the early Church Fathers were poverty- stricken aesthetes. They got it wrong, if you look at Willow Church.
Aside from these minor drawbacks, the place is great. I thought I heard mention of certain 'parallel deities' at one point in the sermon, but I might be wrong. I was mainly interested in learning what language the angels speak in Heaven (Iraneus' old standby, Latin, seems erroneous). Although this particular point was not addressed, I still had a bushel of fun. Nicholas of Cusa may have railed against riches, but he could be wrong, too.
The nice thing about Willow Creek is that they in no way prohibit Puerto Ricans from joining. I am not Puerto Rican myself, but many of my friends are, and I know them as vigorous in everything, religion included.
I was, however, disappointed that there was no willow or creek in the church. But then, there is no grove in Morton!
Augustine of Hippo said it best: "inter faeces et urinam nascimur."

Pros: not as odd as the moonies

Cons: big and confusing, if you get lost easily
