Finding your way in a new church family can be difficult. New faces. New places. New gatherings and opportunities. Where should you get started? Great question!
At Willow Creek Church, the answer is something we call Discover!
Discover is our guest-oriented Sunday morning gathering. Held in Pastor Kevin's study, Discover provides a warm, lively, and engaging orientation for our guests.
Over five sessions, guests will meet ministry leaders, learn about the overall ministry of Willow Creek Church, and get equipped to connect with their new church family!
Discover is hosted by active, enthusiastic members of the Willow Creek Church family. They provide light breakfast foods, welcome our guests, and help them get connected.
Session 1 – Our History and Identity
Session 2 – Our Values and Our Vision
Session 3 – Our Beliefs, Part I
Session 4 – Our Beliefs, Part II
Session 5 – Our Membership Vows and Next Steps
Do I have to take all five sessions in order?
No. Start and finish when you can!
Does Discover Willow Creek equip me for membership in the church?
Yes! Completing all five sessions of Discover equips guests to make a decision regarding church membership, but does not obligate them to join. For those led to join Willow Creek Church, we will schedule an interview with our elders.
How do I get registered?
To maintain an atmosphere in which friendships and connections can truly develop, space for each session of Discover is limited. Please contact Pastor of Families and Connections, Drew Taylor, to get registered. We'll get you scheduled for a class right away—maybe even this Sunday!
