The Gathering Place is not a "place" per se but a means to gather together those who desire to be a part of spiritual, faith, christian, Jesus-follower community but not a structured religious organization. In particular this gathering is for those who feel drawn to connect with others to worship, pray, support, learn, discuss, play, create and grow around their christian (not a specific denomination) values of love, service, kindness, peace and acceptance.
This is a come as you are gathering. A gathering for those who love God and Jesus but maybe have felt guilted, shamed, silenced, invisible in more traditional faith settings. A gathering for those who are turned off by churchiosity or just simply don't want to be a part of a specific organization but desire to be a part of a faith community or group. A gathering for those of other faith traditions or those new to any faith tradition who don't want to be converted or told their beliefs or non-beliefs are wrong but feel a pull to have a heart and spirit connection around God and learn more about this Jesus.
We are still exploring what "The Gathering Place" could be, so there's lots of space for ideas, activities, growing and doing together. Initially our gatherings will be informal meetups around the Tacoma area to consider what our future gatherings might look like...how are we being drawn together...what are we being called to do together...to talk life...talk love...talk connection...and at a minimum spend time with a really decent group of human beings who get that we are all connected to one another and to something bigger than ourselves. We look forward to meeting you!!
