The Gathering is a ministry sponsored by Craft Memorial United Methodist Church and FreshSTART.  We are open to all!  We offer a warm and nurturing environment to those with little or no hope.  No one leaves here empty and everyone who visits feels a sense of being lifted out of the muddy waters of depression and loneliness.
 
come-as-you-areEnjoy the Fellowship Hall and meet our staff and ministry members.  You are not alone with your burdens, hang-ups or habits.  Many here are in the same boat and have flourished in our loving and judgment free environment. The Gathering is exactly what it states!  Non of us can meet the daily burdens of life without community.  Community is essential, for a society to be healthy and prosperous, fellowship is key.  We cannot do it alone. We need each other!

Join Us!
Sunday Nights
at 5:00 PM
 
The Gathering is a place of hope!  Individuals, families and their children, volunteers, staff and visitors all congregate with a free meal offered every Sunday night at 5:00 PM.  After dinner we all gather in the Sanctuary for worship and contemporary spiritual music.  Some of our members speak the stories of their lives and their recovery experiences, other sit in the pews and celebrate everyone’s effort with praises.  Most of all, we all join in God’s all encompassing love and compassion for us, as we learn how through His mercy and grace we can find freedom and peace!
You’re Invited!
