What kind of church is The Gathering?

The Gathering is a church full of imperfect people who are being changed by Jesus. We would love to have you join us, and we want you to come as you are. We’re not big on rules or appearances, but we are big on talking about Jesus because His love and grace is what drives us. We have two identical services every Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. You can learn more about The Gathering at our website:
