One of Gateway's Core Values is to strive to provide age-appropriate ministries and activities that honor the Lord Jesus Christ. We have several services to ensure that all age groups can hear God's Word in a way that maximizes their ability to understand the Gospel. Gateway offers a wide variety of opportunities for spiritual growth and discipleship. We hope you join us for a great time of worship, fellowship, and learning!
1. WHAT ARE THE SUNDAY SERVICES LIKE?
Join us at 9:30 AM on Sundays for Discovering God! The whole family is taking a journey through the Bible using the Gospel Project from Lifeway, so children through adults are studying the same lessons (but in age appropriate content). So come in and have a donut or bagel, grab a cup of coffee or juice and dig into God's Word and in the afternoon you can discuss the same topic with your children.
Our Sunday Celebration Service begins at 10:30 AM and features worship that exalts our God and encourages one another with powerful music and Biblical preaching and teaching. Each week you will find a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The preaching and teaching is designed to be practical and relevant.
Sunday Evenings we offer Living Life 24/7 for churched and unchurched families alike. At 5:45 we have light refreshments, coffee, or pop and a time of fellowship. At 6:00 we look at issues that affect all of us as we live life; things such as: "Why You Can Trust the Bible," "Parenting From the Tree of Life," "Will My Marriage Be 'Happily Ever After'?", "Can I Know Financial Freedom?" and much more that you are concerned about.
2. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT THE FIRST TIME I VISIT?
If you come for the first time we will not embarrass you by having you raise your hand or stand up. Most people appreciate being "anonymous" when they visit and not singled out. We will offer you information about Gateway Church and give you a gift in appreciation for being our guest. We realize we may not be for everyone, but we are for anyone.
3. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
At Gateway Church we are not about what a person wears or looks like. You will find people wearing casual clothing and others in a suit or dress; some in jeans and others in shorts. We want you to come wearing what you feel most comfortable in.
4. WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
In cooperation with our insurance company and First Advantage Screening, every one of our volunteers in every ministry have gone through a thorough background check. Your child's safety is a serious matter to us, one that we do not take lightly.
A well-staffed nursery is provided in all of our services. Gateway Kids Connection is for children in grades K-3 during the Sunday morning service. Your children will enjoy a time of high-energy singing, great truths taught directly from God's Word, craft time, and activity time that ties in to the day's lesson.
5. HOW CAN I MEET OTHERS AND GET CONNECTED?
Church is better together! We want to help you know God, discover your purpose, and make a difference where you live, work and play. At the end of the day we want each of us to be fully-devoted followers of Christ. At Gateway you can meet others and become connected through our LIFE Groups, Life On Life Missional Discipleship Movement, Mission Impact Team, Community Garden Team, Threads That Bind Quilting Guild, monthly Breakfast With the Guys, Annual Chili Cook-Off, or various other men's and women's ministries. You may be interested in becoming a part of our Worship Team, Silver Eagles Senior Adult Ministries, or serving in Olympians or Revolution Teen Connection.
6. DO YOU HAVE A WEDNESDAY NIGHT SERVICE?
Each Wednesday we have an Adult Bible Study and Prayer Fellowship time beginning at 6:30 PM.
Revolution Youth Connection
On Wednesday Nights during the school year, we offer Revolution Student Connection for teens in grades 6-12. Revolution meets at 6:30 PM during the school year and runs until 7:30 PM. Our youth ministry is here to help engage you and show you the Love of Christ through Bible study, fellowship and fun.
You can find out more about Revolution Student Connection on Facebook.
Our Children's Ministries meet on Wednesday Evenings from 5:45-7:15 PM. Boys and girls are invited to join us at Gateway Kids Connection for an awesome time learning about God through his Word. This is a great opportunity for children Kindergarten-5th Grade to develop in conduct, character, and commitment to Christ.
