Our Resurrection Story!
In 2022, an established United Methodist Church decided to become a Legacy church, leaving its resources (financial and physical) for a new church, who would reach new people in Anna, Texas. The Gathering is the new church. We are forever grateful for the saints who came before, planting seeds of faith in people for over 100 years.
We believe that The Church is open to all people. Yes, that means all! We find beauty in the diversity and inclusivity of all people,
Are you on a deconstruction journey? You are welcome here!
Are you a person in the LGBTQIA+ community? You are welcome here!
Are you already a Christian? You are welcome here!
Are you a person who doesn't know what you believe? You are welcome here!
Are you a Baby Boomer or Gen Z, or ages in-between? You are welcome here!
Whoever you are and whatever you believe, you have a community with us!
We are a United Methodist Church. Please see link for more information on beliefs.

Pastor Dallen is in an ecumenical partnership with Melissa UMC (equal rights and availability as Senior Pastor of Melissa UMC).
Until we host our own worship gatherings, most Sundays you will find Pastor Dallen and her family in worship at Melissa. She participates in the service, leads classes, and offers pastoral support.
Melissa UMC and The Gathering are not in competition with one another and are not the same church. As United Methodist, we are in connection with each other to fulfil the mission of Christ. To do so, we have partnered together to strengthen each other's ministries and make the largest impact in our respective communities.
