Youth Gathering meets Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in the Gathering Place which is directly across State Street from the church.  We start with food, greetings, birthdays, prayer and short message then we break into smaller discussion groups.   Our curriculum is from the reThink Group (aka Orange) and it's called XP3.  We're finishing up the series "Best Seller" which is about how to understand and navigate the Bible and access the tools it makes available to us to live a better life.  The next series is called "Stuck" and it's about how God's heart for us is to live free from the things that keep us stuck.
