Family Ministry
At The Gathering Church we are passionate about families growing in faith together.  Our ministries are built to enhance the life of faith in families while providing a larger church family to lean on for support and resources. Here are some of the ways we support our families:


The Gathering Church offers a nursery for infants up to four years old staffed by two childcare workers who have been background checked and trained through MinistrySafe. Children return to their parents before Communion so that all can receive the bread and wine or blessings together as a family.


GatheringYouth is for students from sixth through twelfth grade. They meet on the first and third Sundays after our Sunday Worship Gathering to grow closer to Jesus and to one another. 


All children are welcome to stay in the service with their families. There is a table available with activity bags, books, and coloring sheets meant to help with focus and participation in the service.

House Church

Our House Churches host a lot of children! during the adult Bible study each House Church offers a separate time for children with crafts and activities. The children are working through The Biggest Story Bible Storybook.


GatheringKids is an opportunity for children five years old through fifth grade to interact with the stories of the Bible. GatheringKids takes place during the sermon on the first and third Sundays of the month.

The Gathering Church is committed to the safety of our children, youth, and adults of our community. All staff and volunteers have been background checked and participate in child abuse prevention training through MinistrySafe every two years. Our policies are not just on paper; they are actively practiced every time our community gathers for fellowship and worship. Learn more about MinistrySafe here.
