After 8 1/2 years of meeting at Huntley High School, Willow Creek’s Huntley campus moved into its new permanent facility, celebrating its first services at its new Kane County location yesterday.
The site, on 23 acres of land in unincorporated Rutland Township, was packed and overflow parking needed for the first weekend’s services.
The Kane County sheriff’s department provided traffic direction assistance on Huntley Road before and after the two Sunday services, and church volunteers, like Mike and Dave, provided assistance directing traffic to available parking.
Willow Creek Huntley sent postcard announcements letting residents of southern McHenry and northern Kane Counties know of the new church location nearby, and the celebration of the grand opening will take place throughout the month of September.
Within and around the new facility, the church was celebrating the provision of God for the new home, with feast preparations being made outside while the 2nd service was finishing.

Within the canopies outside, a great feast was being prepared celebrating the grand opening:
Praise God, and congratulations for Willow Creek Huntley now being in their new home. With a new subdivision being built in nearby Gilberts, may Willow Creek Huntley, and the other nearby churches like Fox Valley Church and Calvary Chapel CARDUNAL, bring in the harvest prepared from Above.
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, for they are white already to harvest. John 4: 34, 35 (KJV)
