The Gathering Place Church

GP Life - Get Involved!


Sunday Worship Service

Our church is designed as a place to belong, with you in mind!  We have upbeat music, relevant messages, and a chance to meet new friends - all in an authentic, casual community.

Join us Sundays at 10:30 AM in the Washington High School Gymnasium.



Wednesday Worship & Bible Study

We meet every Wednesday for mid-week worship and Bible study.  In a smaller, more intimate setting we worship, fellowship, and dig into the Word together.  Pastor John has a more in-depth teaching during this time and you will leave ready to finish your week strong.

Everything takes place on the 3rd floor of our downtown building at 120 W Court St.



G.L.O.W. Children's Ministry

G.L.O.W. (God's Little Ones Worshipping) is our children's ministry.  With activities during both Sunday morning and Wednesday night services, there is alwasy something for the kids to do.  During the summer, the annual VBS is always a big hit and there are other special events throughout the year.

Classes and activities are generally for age 2 through 5th grade.



LOGOS Ladies Ministry

Logos (Greek for "the written word") is our ladies ministry.  With both monthly meetings and annual events, Logos is a great way to stay connected with other women at the GP and in the community.

Our regular Logos events always include worship and a teaching from Candy Pfeifer.

Regular meetings are the first Tuesday of every month at 7 PM in Liberty Hall (Washington High School).
