if you're looking for a fun, safe place to hang out on a Thursday night,

Look no further than The Gathering,

First Presbyterian Church's newest college-age group! 


Beginning in January 2015, and after many months of consideration and recognition of needs, we decided to spruce up the room above the nursery on the First Pres campus to turn it into a place for people to come hang out, eat, do homework, listen to music, play games...the possibilites are endless.


We provide a free meal every week.

Bring your friends!

All are welcome.


 Breaking bread together is biblical; the Apostle Paul himself

would teach as he broke bread with others.

Sharing a meal really does bring people together, 

including those who prepare it.


Being away at college can be really tough, especially when it comes to missinghome-cooked meals. As a part of our college ministry,

we are always looking for folks to cook for

our hungry college kids!


If you have a knack in the kitchen, contact us and we will put you on our calendar! Click the link below to shoot us an email.

We usually have anywhere from 10-20 students every Thursday
