The Gathering is for 6th-12th grade students. We gather to worship together, take a look at God's word, and have some fun! The Gathering is a great place to get to know God and meet some new people. Join us Sunday mornings during 1st service time (9:00 AM) in the High School Room on the North-West side of our campus.

The Gathering at a Glance —

As we look at this series, take a deep breath. Count to ten. Unclench your jaw. Close your eyes (or don't, since you're trying to read). You've probably learned a trick or two to help you recenter when you are overwhelmed or feeling stressed, worried, or anxious.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of reasons to feel stressed on most days. So, between school, family, relationships, and questions about the future, what can we do?
During Jesus's ministry, he spent a lot of time with people during some really stressful moments. In this four-week series from the Gospels, we'll see how, when we're not okay, Jesus offers hope. We'll discover that when people reject us, Jesus never will. We'll see that it's still worth it when it's not easy to do what's right. And we'll be reminded that when you feel worried, Jesus can be trusted.
Each of our series has an On Your Own Devotional:
