Jesus told us to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of the Gathering Place Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. The Gathering Place members are involved in a variety of ministries. 

 

Mission Outreach

The Gathering Place is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in supporting our Southern Baptist  missionaries with our money and with our prayers.  We help support local missions, with volunteers and food pantry donations.  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

 

 Wednesday Evening Dinner & Bible Study

Every Wednesday evening, volunteers prepare a dinner for our visitors and members starting at 6 pm.  There is no charge for the meal served.   Following the dinner, bible study begins at 7 pm.  Preschool, Children, Youth and Adult bible study classes available.

 

 Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. The Gathering Place Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Tuesday morning, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers  pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.

 

Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, The Gathering holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a  manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.

 

Vacation Bible School

Each summer, The Gathering Place Church hosts VBS. The week-long event involves games, a lot of teaching, good food, and great worship.  The entire VBS team looks forward to this important service. They find that their ministry is personally rewarding, and both children and teachers grow in the process. VBS is available for ages 4 years – 6th grade.
