  • Over 165 volunteers gave their time, love, and energy to our kids
  • 42 kids were baptized
  • Kids Christmas service was full of energy and joy
  • Our Clayton Site got a new kids space
  • “Serving Sundays” have started
  • Webster site has a full-time Kids Site Leader
  • Clayton site hired a new kids music leader
  • Fun meetups including rock climbing, ice skating, Polar Express party, and Grab a Slice
  • New Kids Leadership Team at Webster
  • New preschool class at Webster
  • We see new families each week
  • The ministry is growing across all sights

And so much more!

A few testimonies:

“I’ve seen J. really grow in his faith over the past few months. He used to try to stand out in his group by acting out (and he still sometimes does) but now he is including himself in the activities, making friends, and is applying the Bible story takeaways in his everyday life.  He has started praying and thinking about the choices he makes.” – Kristen Schwartz

“Because of Gathering Kids my sons have a relationship with a loving God.” – Jen Drury

“Because of Gathering Kids my kids look forward to going to church to learn about God with friends in a loving environment! This mom’s dream!” – Sarah Calame

As you can see, Kids Ministry at The Gathering is intentional. It takes support and prayer from the entire church community to be a success. And behind the scenes, we’ve been working on some really cool things for this next school year.  We can’t wait to share with you! Stay tuned!
