Led by Rev. Lance Marshall
This new and different First Church Sunday morning offering led by Rev. Lance Marshall offers a casual and relevant opportunity for prayer, study, topical exploration and high-spirited connection free from typical worship or Sunday school structures. With digitally-driven experiences of specially curated music, video presentations by some of today’s great theologians and teachers folded into thought-provoking discussion and study-styled opportunities for deeper explorations, The Gathering presents unique opportunity to connect socially, intellectually, and spiritually in a new and different way within the First Church Faith community. Join The Gathering to interact with ideas, energy, and like-minded others before Chapel Communion and attending worship together either in the Sanctuary or eleven:eleven celebration.

Aah, the sermon, the most “Gathering” thing about The Gathering! There are many different schools of thought regarding preaching, but all agree that messages need to be customized to their context in order to make an impact.
The Gathering, an opportunity that Rev. Lance Marshall describes as “radically relevant, modern Methodism,” is growing fast with record attendance of more than 200 people. After only a year, this worship offering has already outgrown its space — twice. That’s why starting March 5, the first Sunday of Lent, we will add another service in this same unique format.
The Gathering, a totally different First Church Sunday morning offering, is growing fast week by week. Rev. Lance Marshall is looking for a music leader who will guide the congregation in singing while leading via piano or guitar.
