Whether you’re new to church or you’ve been around it your whole life, visiting a new one can be nerve-wracking. We want you to know that you’re welcome here at The Gathering! We’ve designed it to be a place where anyone, no matter your background, can feel comfortable. The Gathering is a casual & safe community where you can explore your relationship with God and connect with others.
We Preach the Gospel
Gospel-centered preaching is declaring the cross and the empty tomb. At The Gathering Church we open God’s Word, take the main point of a biblical text, make it the main point of a sermon, and apply it to life today. We are committed to sound, evangelical, biblical doctrine, and we preach the whole Bible without apology.
What to Expect
If it’s your first time at The Gathering, here are some things you can expect to find on any given weekend:
Friendly greeters to get you pointed in the right direction.
A worship service about 70 minutes long, with a mix of older and contemporary, gospel-centered music and an applicable message from the Bible
Time to connect with family and friends while enjoying a cup of coffee and a bite to eat after the service.
What to Wear
You can wear whatever makes you feel the most comfortable–jeans, khakis, suits, dresses, whatever. We tend to be pretty casual, and you’ll notice people wearing a wide assortment of attire, so regardless of what you have on, you’ll probably see others wearing the same thing.
The Pastor often wears jeans and a plaid shirt!
We make kids a priority at The Gathering. Not only are they highly valued & loved by God, but they’re the next generation of leaders! The world they live in is tough, so we want to equip them with biblical truth about who God is and who they are, and how to live lives that impact others with the love of Jesus. We have nursery care and the Kids Gathering for preschool - Grade 5. We also have a youth group that meets midweek for students Grade 6 - 12.
