In accordance with the new rules on social distancing and our responsibility to keep each other healthy, The Gathering Place is cancelling all spring classes. 

We wish you well and look forward to Gathering together again in the fall. We invite you to follow our e-newsletter that will try to keep you informed with ideas to do while we are home.

Stay safe and healthy.


The exhibit of Earl Lehman’s & Michael Sorrentino’s work
was planned to open on April 10. Here is a small sampling of their art.
For information about any of these paintings you can contact
the artists on their Facebook pages. Enjoy!



In response to the pandemic and the need it has created in our community,
The Gathering Place, The First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit, and
Our Lady of Snows Church, in cooperation with the Clarks Summit Borough have created The Open Door Food Pantry. The pantry is located in the entryway to the 
Borough Building elevator on Spring St.

We are accepting donations at this time. If you have extra and want to help, the door is always open, the shelves are set up,  just place your donations on the shelves.

Be Creative to show our Community Hope

The Gathering Place, in conjunction with Verve Vertu Art Studio and
Everything Natural, is instituting a creative community art program called
Common Thread. This is a great project for the whole family illustrating how connected we are and how working together unites us.

The Project
Starting Wednesday, May 6th, you can pick up 8”x 8” muslin squares at
Everything Natural. Design the square using acrylic paint, markers, or iron-on fabric with a symbol, a phrase, a picture of hope.

Return your decorated flags to Everything Natural. They will be collected, joined together and displayed throughout the community.

We have changed the submission deadline to
