We were visiting Chicago for a week and went to Willow Creek on Sunday morning, the music was great and the message as well. I would definitely come back next time I am in Chicago!

We absolutely love everything about Willow! We drive an hour and a half from Wisconsin every week, each way to attend! It is the largest church we have ever attended, yet every time I walk into the building I feel like I'm home.

For another the friendliest people in the world open the doors,greet you in the aisles and even the worship staff make you feel welcome. I usually struggle... More

It felt strange coming to a Theatre for church, but not overly so. I went to the Auditorium and admired the beautiful decorations. They... More
