Next Steps


At The Gathering, partnership (or membership) simply means you faithfully attend, serve, and give alongside us.

One of our core values is that we’re a family. That means there are no extra hoops to jump through or formal processes to join. Once you’re ready to be part of the family, you’re a part of the family.

From Day One, if you’re ready to do life with us we’re ready to partner with you.


Baptism shows others you have made a personal decision to follow Jesus Christ. It represents you have accepted Christ’s death on the cross as a substitute judgment for your sins and that a new life has begun in Christ.


Serving in church isn’t just about filling a role that needs to be filled. Studies have shown the best way to meet people and develop friendships in church is through being on a serving team with other people.

Not only does serving help you get connected to new friends, it is a tangible way for you to help others be comfortable as they begin to navigate the messiness of finding a new community to be a part of.
