The Gathering serves the Body of Christ through its numerous ministries.  Please contact us if you would like more information about any of these opportunities or sign up to get involved.

Giving praise to our Heavenly Father and worshipping the King of Kings is the goal of our music ministry at The Gathering,  Our desire is to create an atmosphere of worship for all ages.  We sing a blend of modern and contemporary praise and worship songs, as well as some of the sacred hymns of the church, like Amazing Grace.

Ministering to those who are in the hospital or a nursing home is the heart of this ministry team.  We minister to the Okeechobee area as well as surrounding counties.  If you have a heart for those who are sick or shut in, please consider serving in this ministry.  Contact church office to serve in the Okeechobee area.

The Gathering holds to the truths in God's Word, "...they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover..." Mark 16:18.  During our Sunday Morning Worship service, there is a time during which our elders lay hands on and pray for those who need healing in their physical bodies.  If you would like to serve in the Healing Team Ministry, or would like more information, please contact Pastor Theresa Brown at 863.357.3318.

The Men of the  House (M.O.T.H.) meet for fellowship at different times throughout the year.  This is a time to get to know one another, share testimonials and scriptures, and pray with each other.

The Gathering welcomes you and your child.  We believe that ministry begins at birth, and we consider it a privilege to minister the love of Jesus to your child.  Our Nursery/Preschool is staffed with certified volunteers from our congregation with a big heart to serve these little ones. Our rooms are creatively decorated and equipped to minister effectively to your child.  We also have a nursing mother's room available.  Click here to learn more!

Our ushers seat people, pass out visitor cards, help administer communion, and answer questions as needed.  Our greeters offer a smiling face, a warm handshake or hug, and a friendly greeting.  Our greeters also provide quick information for first-time guests.  To serve in either of these areas, or to obtain more information, please contact Gary Scherrer 863.634.0865
