Community Life

Community Life Overview

Community Life is a "One Stop Shop" for Youth and Adults, these events are happening in The NRG Arena daily starting June 27. It offers a place for youth to play games, inflatables, live stages with prizes and our own live bible studies that will happen in the afternoons. We will also offer a place of relaxation for participants in our Hammock Village.

Community life also has volunteers that will help check you in at your hotel, and make sure you have everything you need for the Gathering. Our volunteers will be ready and willing you help you starting on Tuesday, June 26, starting at 3pm.
