Event Details

In cooperation with Project Uplift USA, the Gathering is supporting and serving our local community during the 2017 WRAL Freedom Balloon by working as the cleanup crew on Sunday, May 28th.  We need volunteers and we want you to be a part of this amazing opportunity to help impact our community for Christ to impact the world.  Click on the volunteer button below and register for a shift through InitLive.  We will not have services at either campus this Sunday.  Shuttles will be taking volunteers to the event from the Fuquay campus.  We hope to see you there!

Join us for worship at the Balloon Festival this Sunday at 10am!
