The Gathering Place is a miracle in the making. My husband, Lowell, and I have been caretakers for an estate just south of Carthage, Missouri since September 2009. Lowell and I have been praying for months about how The Big House could be used. It's big, beautiful, and spacious. The owners, the Richarts, just want to see it cared for and enjoyed. After much prayer, Lowell talked with Mr. Richart about using the house for events such as weddings, retreats, birthday parties, reunions, business meetings, and church activities. Mr. Richart agreed; and, the two came to arrangements.
So, now we had a vision, a gathering place, and little money. So, we waited, talked and prayed. After many months, God stepped in and started making things happen. This blog will tell the story as well as give information about what we have to offer and the special events we have planned.
If you're in the Carthage area, call (417) 358-0963 to arrange a tour and discuss how we can help you make your next event memorable.
Our next big event will be a Holiday Craft Show.
It will be on Saturday, November 13 from 9:00 am to 5 pm.
We're seeking vendors of handcrafted items.
Tables will be only $20 with lunch available for just $5 per person. Just give us a call. We'd love to talk with you.
