The Past …
The Gathering helps imperfect people find and follow Christ. Most of the ministry takes place at Community First! Village. Once a year we host two retreats outside of Austin -- the Walk to Siloam for men and the Walk to Samaria for women. These awesome getaways allow our friends the opportunity to hit the “pause” button while unpacking their stories and considering the radically real claims of Jesus, our Healer and Rescuer. The responses from the weekends were overwhelmingly positive:
“I never understood God’s love for me until this weekend.” (John)
“Hearing the powerful stories of Jesus giving people a new life never gets old.” (Helen)
“This retreat has given me a glimpse into what heaven will look like one day.” (Sheila)
“The brutal authenticity + the power of the Gospel removes all barriers.” (Ed)
The Present …
The Freeman’s are seeking to raise an additional $35,000 to purchase a park model tiny home at Community First! that will facilitate:
a place of permanence for The Gathering to help imperfect people find and follow Christ
a venue to host supporters and disciple ministry leaders
The park model home will serve as “The Gathering Getaway” and will foster Christ-centered spiritual renewal and refocus. The Gathering is a mission that is 100% donor-funded through generous, tax-deductible contributions. You may invest HERE.
The Near Future …
We are excited to host two nights of worship and learning that will spotlight the Judeo Christian story of forgiveness, peace and hope in Christ. Join The Gathering at Community First! for a powerful Passover celebration:
Saturday, April 6 at 5:05pm: Intro to Passover and the Jewish roots of the Christian faith
Sunday, April 7 at 5:05pm: Passover Seder meal to see, hear and experience the story of Jesus
More details are on our Facebook page HERE.
