For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

Children experience an action-packed time of learning God’s Word (the Bible), using:

(6 wks.- 3 1/2 yrs)

3 1/2 Years - Kindergarten

1st Grade - 6th Grade

Youth Group

(Grades 7-12)


Every Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm, teens enter into an awesome time of Praise and Worship, followed by a short Bible study on the issues of today.

Special outings give teens the opportunity to have fun and fellowship outside the usual church setting.

Teens also participate in several youth events throughout the year, exposing them to other ministries as they learn how to seek and serve God.



This positive alternative to the bar scene has an atmosphere that is pulsating with a sense of unity and belonging. If you’re seeking to find a secure place in this fast-paced and sometimes chaotic world, The Gathering and Dunamis are your “Island of Love and Compassion.”​
