New Here?

Welcome home!

We are so glad you’re here!

This is a place where you can be yourself. You don’t need to dress up or pretend to be something you aren’t. God is ready to meet you right where you are. It’s ok if you don’t know all the songs or anything about the Bible because our goal is to help you find your way back to God and learn how to make a lasting impact in the world.

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

Most importantly we want you to know that no matter who you are, where you’re from, what you’ve been through, who you vote for or what you look like – you are welcome here!

Take the “Try 5” Challenge!

We understand that deciding whether or not this is the church for you or your family is too big to make after just one visit.  That’s why we want to invite you to take the “Try 5 Challenge” and try us out for 5 weeks and then decide. If you’re ready to take the challenge, you can click here fill out the Digital Connect Card and let us know what week you’re on. 

Discover what we’re all about @ G101 

G101 is a great way to find out more about who we are, what we’re all about and how you can get connected to help make an impact for Christ. You’ll also have the chance to meet some of our pastors and staff and ask any questions you might have. Lunch & childcare are provided. Get more information and sign up here.

Get connected in a Be Group

Be Groups are what we call our small groups and they are the heartbeat of our church. These groups are a great place to connect, grow and serve as we become more like Christ together. We have several groups that meet in different areas most nights of the week. You can find and join a Be Group here

The Gathering Kids Ministry

Our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for kids to be kids while learning about how much God loves them. Our incredible team of volunteers  make Sundays an experience that kids absolutely love every week.
There are also special events to bring kids and parents together and for elementary schoolers there’s an annual summer camp and a weekend retreat in the fall.

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

Where and when are your worship services?

Where do I park?

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

Where do I check in my kids?

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.

When you walk in the main lobby, our volunteers can help you get your kids checked in at the kiosk right there.

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!
