Worship Gatherings

One of the rich features of The Gathering is the presence of multiple house churches/simple churches distributed throughout our community.  The Gathering movement started as a collection of house churches seeking a deeper experience of God's presence and a greater impact on local communities. These house churches reflect our commitment to the value of community... that we encounter MORE of God’s goodness, power, and love TOGETHER. 

If you are interested in visiting one of the house churches,  we would love to welcome you!  Since meeting places change often, please contact one of the church leaders below for information and directions for meeting time and location.​
