The Gathering

The Gathering is open Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Stop by and check out the clothing and have a cup of coffee at 245 North Main St, Rushville.

The first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m., we host a group called “Life Matters.” We’ll sing a few songs, and enjoy a discussion on relevant “life matters!” While the adults meet to get a greater understanding of what the Bible says about life matters, children ages 4 through 4th grade will enjoy an exciting time of silly songs, Bible stories and crafts at KIDS J.A.M. A staffed nursery is available birth to age three. Come as you are!

Bring a friend! Questions? Contact Greg Hartwell at 765-561-1134.
