The Institute for Congregational Development (ICD) is sponsoring a field trip to visit The Gathering in St. Louis on April 9-11. The Gathering was planted 12 years ago in an urban area and has grown to include four sites. They now have around 1,200 worshippers every weekend, led by Lead Pastor Matt Miofsky. This trip is a great chance to see how they have reached new groups of people through ministry in traditional church buildings, plus an elementary school and bar.

The bus will leave from Sun Prairie and Janesville on Monday (4/9) afternoon, with sessions and worship at The Gathering on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Cost is $100 per participant, plus two nights of hotel lodging. They have room on the bus, so they invite you to consider joining them to see how The Gathering works to combine traditional and emerging church ideas to connect with new generations.
