160. Taking Easter to the City – the Gathering UMC

EasterThe Gathering United Methodist Church took their Easter worship service to the St. Louis city streets.  The Gathering is just three years old and yet drew in a congregation of around a thousand for Easter.  On other Sundays you can find the Gathering worshiping in their sanctuary which was built long ago.  When the church closed because of to few members the Gathering started a totally new congregation devoted to offering compelling worship to new generations of people living in the city.

MissionCast was on hand Easter morning and brings you this overview of the service and what the Gathering United Methodist Church is all about.  MissionCasts are usually 2 to 3 minutes long.  This week’s MissionCast is almost 4 minutes but worth the extra minute.
