It Takes 2 To Make…

…a thing go right!

The Gathering’s vision is to create a Christian community that is compelling to new generations of people in St. Louis.

We live out this vision in a lot of different ways, but one major way we do this is through Gathering Kids. Every week nearly 200 kids participate in kid’s ministry at our three sites.

We have an incredible team of staff and volunteers who are committed to building relationships and sharing the love of God with the next generation of our church, but they can’t do it alone. They need your help making sure we continue to be a church loves, inspires, and values our kids.

We created Take 2 for this very reason.

Take 2 is a summer initiative to invite you to serve in kids ministry for just 2 hours over the course of the summer. We are creating opportunities for you to invest in our kids from babies all the way up to 5th graders.

At this point, you might be thinking, “I’m not an expert in kids or Christianity, so surely they won’t want me.” Believe it or not, we most definitely want you! Here’s a bit of what to expect when you sign up. By signing up you are saying yes to the next generation of The Gathering!

  • Staff will provide you with everything you need to serve our kids! Before each of the dates you have signed up to serve you will receive a reminder from your Gathering Kids site leader. They will provide you with the curriculum for that week including a Bible story video, small group activities, music, and prayers.
  • You should expect to fill out a background check form prior to serving. On your serving day, you should arrive 30 minutes before service and come prepared to lead small group activities. Last but not least, come ready to have a lot of fun with our awesome Gathering Kids!
