Mother’s Day 2014

Celebration of Hope isn’t just a series; it’s a way of life for those of us who belong to and actually follow Christ. So HOW should we live—especially if we think Jesus wasn’t cracking a joke when He said, “As the Father sent Me, so I send you”? (John 20:21) How should we live as the continued incarnation of Jesus Christ in the world today? There’s a 3-part pattern that happens over and over in Jesus’ life. It’s His M.O. But it isn’t only something He modeled to us, it’s something He mandated for us. It’s our “HOW.” In this message, Willow Crystal Lake Lead Pastor Marcus Bieschke traces this model through the Gospels and then shares a powerful story that personifies the HOW with Donna Gauthier, founder and leader of Willow Crystal Lake’s Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry.

Willow Crystal Lake Expansion Plan Update
03/29/2014

Nothing infuriated Jesus more than people’s indifference to the needs of others. In this message from Mark 3, Willow Crystal Lake Lead Pastor Marcus Bieschke shares why and how we are to engage the world’s needs. We need to untangle our twisted view of the church. For too many people, church is an hour on Sunday, a building, or an institution. In reality, we are Christ’s Body. Jesus has no hands on earth but ours. Today, as the Church, the Body of Christ, when you stretch out YOUR hand—in some profoundly mysterious and supernatural way—you literally stretch out HIS hand. So, for Christ’s sake, stretch out your hand!

Stronger in Love
12/24/2013

Life is full of interruptions. And in this message out of Matthew 1:18, WCL Lead Pastor Marcus Bieschke interrupts our understanding of Christmas. Because if you think about it, really, Christmas is full of interruptions. During this season, we interrupt our schedules, our work, our finances, our physical health, our family sanity… But, ultimately, we need to realize that the actual Christmas story is an interruption. And it’s what we choose to do with that Interruption that determines the depth and direction of our lives.
