New Here?

Welcome home!

Whether you are thinking about checking out The Gathering for the first time or you’ve already been a few times, we are honored you would choose to spend a Sunday with us as we pursue God together.

We know that going to a new church for the first time can be a little overwhelming and we want to make sure your visit goes as smoothly as possible so here are a few things you can expect…

// A dynamic worship experience that lasts about an hour and 15 minutes

// A casual atmosphere – no need to dress up

// Outstanding music with a live worship band

// A relevant, engaging, and practical message from the Bible

//Pre-K and Kids ministry your kids will love

If you’re looking for a perfect church, this isn’t it. We are far from perfect but we are on a journey to become more like Jesus one day at a time, one step at a time.

You don’t have to look or dress a certain way or be a certain age, subscribe to a certain political view, or pretend like you’ve got it all together. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here!

Looking for a new church to call home?  Take the Try Five Challenge!  

Finding a church home can be difficult.  It is hard to make a commitment to a new church based on one visit.  This is why we would ask you to take the Try Five Challenge.  Visit us five weeks in a row and see if we are a good fit for you and your family.  This will give you a great idea of who we are and what we are all about as well as give us the chance to get to know you!  If you’re ready to take the challenge, send us a quick message below or fill out the orange connect card this Sunday.  


I'm up for the "Try 5 Challenge"

Here are some answers to questions that may help as you plan your visit…

When and where are your worship services?

We have 2 campuses – one in Fuquay Varina and one in Holly Springs.

The Fuquay Varina Campus is located at 501 Wake Chapel Rd. and has 2 services on Sunday morning at 9:30am and 11:00 am. > Get directions

The Holly Springs Campus is located at Southern Wake Academy – 5108 Old Powell Rd. and has one service at 11:00am. > Get directions

Where do I park?

As you get close to the parking lot entrance, you’ll see the orange and white signs (or flags) and our parking lot greeters in yellow vests directing you to the closest available spot.

Where do I check in my kids?

4gPre-K > Nursery through Preschool
At the Fuquay Varina campus…
Enter through the main entrance and proceed through the lobby down to end of the hallway, turn left and you’re there!

At the Holly Springs Campus…
Once you come into the lobby, turn right and the check-in station will be directly in front of you.

One of our awesome volunteers will help your child get securely checked in and make sure all your questions are answered before you go to worship. You’ll be given a numbered tag to bring with you after the service when you check out your child.

4gKids > Kindergarten through 5th grade
At the Fuquay Varina Campus…
Look for the 4gKids sign at the door to the left of the main entrance. Once you’re in the door, you’ll see the check-in station with more incredible volunteers who will check your child in and introduce them to other kids their age. The biggest challenge will probably be convincing them to leave when you pick them up after the service!

Do you have coffee?

YES! You have your choice of coffee brewed fresh in one of our Keurig coffee makers – along with creamer and sweetener. And yes – you’re welcome to take it with you into the service.

I have more questions

Shoot us a message at and we’ll do our best to answer any questions you have.

Where do I get info about getting connected?

We have an info desk in the lobby with someone who would love to help you get connected, answer any questions you have, help you register for events, and even hook you up with a swag bag full of great stuff!
