WHO ARE WE?

The Gathering Place is part of the First United family. We are one church family with two unique identities. We gather online Sunday mornings at 10am EST on YouTube, IGTV, Facebook Live and right here! We're starting in-person gatherings starting in September 2021. Until then, keep updated on our social media pages @thegatheringplaceumc

It is our mission to encounter God and neighbor in new and meaningful ways. We do this by going beyond the four walls of the church, gathering online and across the Daytona Beach area. If you're a longtime Christ follower, you are welcome here. If you're a religious misfit, you are welcome here. If you're burnt out on religion but curious about this Jesus guy, you're welcome here.

MONTLY HIKES WITH THE GATHERING PLACE

When we asked our local community where they experience God, most folks didn't say church, bible study, or worship. The overwhelming answer was outside. Surprising? Not really. Has your breath ever caught at the sight of a sunset? Have you ever stood in awe around of of the created world? Have you ever stopped in your tracks at the beauty of the water? You know the feeling.
The Gathering Place is a new faith community in Daytona Beach rediscovering ways to encounter God and our neighbors. Join us for our monthly hikes around Volusia County.
Our next hike is May 8th at 9 AM

TUESDAY ONLINE YOGA + MEDITATION GATHERINGS

Every Tuesday night, we host an online Yoga & Meditation gathering. We've assembled a great cohort of Yoga instructors who lead us in a 20-30 min beginners level yoga class. Some nights, we practice meditations or mindfulness practices. But...what does that have to do with prayer? And can Christians even do yoga?! What if we were to tell you that yoga, grounding exercises, meditation can be prayer too? Join us on Tuesdays or anytime on YouTube, Facebook Live, or firstunited.org/west to try it for yourself.

The Gathering Place exists to rediscover the ways people of faith gather and encounter God.

"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” - Matthew 18:20
