Ever get halfway through the week and find yourself in need of a spiritual infusion? You’re not alone. Every Wednesday, people gather at Willow for dinner with friends, experience heartfelt worship, explore the available classes and workshops, and soak in biblical teaching designed to help you take your relationship with God to the next level.
It’s all part of Willow’s Midweek, and the fall lineup of classes and workshops has something for everyone—even kids.
“Midweek is connection on overdrive,” says Teaching Pastor Steve Carter. “When I walk around Willow before the service begins, I see small groups meeting over dinner in the atrium, couples in Dr. B’s making this a date night, families sharing time together before the kids go to Awana and the parents go to the Lakeside teaching or to a class. And during worship, everyone can make a deeper connection to God.”
Worship begins at 7 p.m. in the Lakeside Auditorium, giving you an opportunity to pour out your heart to God and be reminded of His goodness and mercy, His power, and His infinite love. Following worship, you can remain in the Lakeside Auditorium for this fall’s teaching series on the Sermon on the Mount, or head to any number of classes designed to help you take the next step on your spiritual journey.
The Lineup for Fall
This fall’s Lakeside series delves into the Sermon on the Mount. Teaching pastor Steve Carter, Dr. Gary Burge, and Bryan Jones, director of Student Impact share teaching responsibilities as they unpack this pivotal message from Jesus in Matthew 5-7.
Other classes explore a variety of topics, from marriage and parenting, to spiritual gifts, finances, grief support, recovery from addictions and more. There are even classes related to unplanned pregnancy, finding employment, and a Bible study especially for teens and adults with developmental disabilities.

What’s in it for Kids?
While parents attend worship and Lakeside teaching or a class of their choice, Willow offers two options for kids—all based on their age group. New this fall is a modified Awana program for children in kindergarten through grade 5. Students may choose to participate in art, drama, or team-building games designed to deepen their faith. Working at their own pace, they memorize Scripture and expand their knowledge of the Bible.
Younger children, from infants to age 5, will have fun in a safe, caring environment while parents attend worship and the class or workshop of their choice.
