Men's Ministry Evening Bible Study

Some of the men of Willow Creek Church enjoy fellowship, prayer, and discussion over great truths of God's Word in a relaxed, brotherly atmosphere (6:30–7:30pm in Pastor Kevin's Study).

The Book of Galatians
Leaders: Brett Butler and Greg Ratliff
Location: Pastor Kevin's Study

This fast-paced time together is about catching up, praying, and studying God's Word with one another. We are presently completing a study of the book of Galatians. It's a great time and new guys are always welcome!

Pastor Kevin's Midweek Bible Study (Open to All)

Open to anyone interested in exploring deep truths of God's Word, Pastor Kevin leads an evening Bible study for you to enjoy as well (6:30–7:30pm) in his study! This study is required for all those considering service as elders, deacons, or women's ministry leaders at Willow Creek. What's on the schedule for this spring? We're glad you asked!

Christianity Explored
Leader: Pastor Kevin
Location: Room 604

What’s the best gift that God could give you?

Life Explored is a seven session series featuring a combination of short films - shot around the world - and Bible interaction.

It’s an exposé of the little gods that promise us so much happiness, yet deliver so little. As it explores the Bible story (creation, fall, redemption, new creation), Life Explored shows how our deepest desires for happiness can only be satisfied in one person, Jesus Christ. The best gift God can give us is himself.

This class is open to all high school students and adults. It is required for those considering future service as elders, deacons, and women’s ministry leaders; it is the first session of our leadership training course.
