Will we be seeing you at the next Gathering Place meeting? Please RSVP using the form below so that we can plan for you!

We have two different times and locations to choose from:

Gathering Place (29)

The Gathering Place at Marge’s Donut Den: The original Gathering Place! We meet once a month on Tuesday afternoons at the locally famous Marge’s Donut Den to enjoy games, donuts, company, and an activity led by a guest organization! The Beyond26 Gathering Place at Marge’s Donut Den has a focus on giving back so we often feature an activity that allows us to help another local nonprofit (assembling care packages, making cards, etc.) Followed by fun and games of course!

The Gathering Place at Marge’s Donut Den
1751 28th St SW, Wyoming, MI 49519
Tuesdays from 1-3 pm

The Gathering Place at Brookside Friends Alive: Because so many people loved the Gathering Place at Marge’s, we decided to partner with Brookside Church’s Friends Alive program to grow our circle! We meet once a month on Monday evenings to bring our two groups together for games, snacks, and group activities. This gathering is usually held at Brookside Church, but please be sure to check the schedule as we occasionally meet in the community for activities like bowling, picnics, etc.

Everyone is welcome to join us! Feel free to bring a friend (or make some new ones)! Please RSVP using the form at the top of this page so we can plan for you!
