'The Gathering' hosted in Ottertail July 30 to Aug. 8

Worship music, art, writing, and dancing will once again be featured at the Gathering, an annual event put on by Firestarters Ministries. The theme for this year's event is "We will be victorious."

Each night, for 10 nights, hundreds of people will show up for the Ottertail celebration. This year, the Gathering will be held in the renovated Ottertail Creamery building at 107 West Main Street.

Starting Friday, July 30 through Sunday, Aug. 8, the public is welcome to come to Ottertail for a time of celebration, creative expression and worship. The Gathering will feature worship music each night starting at 7 p.m. A variety of speakers will be sharing messages.

During the day, several family-friendly activities are planned such as volleyball at the lake and a trip to the rope swing. On weekends, morning worship sessions will also be held at the Creamery. As all times are subject to change, it is important to keep checking the event schedule online.

For most of the afternoons, different arts workshops are planned -- each focusing on encouraging people in a different creative outlet. Workshop topics this year include: drawing, dance, music and worship, photography, oil painting, writing and pottery.

The Gathering workshops run from 2-4 p.m. As with the night meetings, they are free of charge. Everyone is invited to attend the workshops and learn more about the creative arts.
