Serve in the community

The Gathering was founded out of a deep desire to make a significant impact on our city.  In order to truly live as disciples of Jesus, we know we must serve others. Through service you can develop relationships, provide space for others to meet and experience God's love, grow deeper in your own faith, and lift up people in St. Louis and around the world. 


Locally, The Gathering provides opportunities to serve the community through The Literacy Project, our ministry that pairs volunteer reading mentors with kindergarten and first grade students at schools in the St. Louis Public Schools and the Normandy Schools Collaborative. 


Globally, The Gathering gives away 100% of our Christmas Eve offering every year to the Mozambique Safe Water Initiative - which has enabled more than 100 new wells to be built throughout the country. From time to time, Gathering members travel to Mozambique  to work alongside and be in community with people in the villages where we've dug wells.

    • Love the Lou is looking for individuals or groups to provide meals for theBLOCK. Middle and high school students come to theBLOCK to essentially let down their guard and actually be kids.
