ABOUT THE PRACTICE

OUR MISSION

The Practice is a community that gathers on Sunday evenings in the Willow Chapel for worship, prayer, teaching, and communion. The Scripture, prayers, and songs of our opening liturgy help us to set aside all that distracts us from the Lord’s loving presence. We slow down to learn and engage the spiritual practices that help us to walk with Jesus. Every gathering, we center around the communion table to meet with Christ in a tangible way.

Through all of this, we are seeking to create a sacred space, both in our gatherings and in our everyday lives, so that we can be formed by Jesus to be like Jesus for the sake of the world.

MEETING TIME + PLACE

 

We gather most Sundays at 6pm in the Willow Creek Chapel. On the last Sunday of every month, we have Practice Tables, small groups that gather in homes throughout the area for prayer and fellowship.

You can join our livestreamed gatherings on our YouTube page.
