Here at Gateway, we try to keep things relatively simple, come as you are and discover where God may lead you. There are a variety of different areas where you can get involved and serve in. While there are struggles we share in life, every age group has challenges that they face and we try to design opportunities for individuals and families to have the support and encouragement they want and need. Bible studies, worship and service opportunities are available for all ages and in a variety of styles. We encourage you to take the time to explore where you will fit in best and can begin to build the relationships that will encourage you and help you in your journey to a greater understanding of Jesus.
Bible studies are designed to connect people with one another in order to lift each other towards Christ. Each group is designed to be a safe place for all persons to find real answers. These answers are not provided by an "answer person" but rather through the collective life stories of the members. The main goal is that people are lifted towards Christ!
It's our desire that you feel welcome as you come to journey with us. People often ask how they should dress and the answer we usually give is, however you dress, you will see someone probably dressed just like you. We are less concerned with how you look, than how you are doing.
God speaks in diverse ways through our worship teams and pastor to bring you a fresh perspective on Jesus’ love and grace each Sunday. Music ranges from classic hymns, gospel and contemporary worship and the teaching is created to be practical and biblical, ready to prompt you for transformation.
It’s not unusual for some of us to raise our hands in total surrender to God as we feel His Holy Spirit at work during worship while others find deepened worship in quiet contemplation. We work to create lifelong followers of Christ, so please know that your kids are welcome to worship with us in the main sanctuary, although we also offer Nursery (infant through 4 year olds, in the Eastern hallway), kindergarten and Kid’s Church (1st grade through 5th grade, worship with their families and are dismissed for their lesson time before the sermon). The decision is up to you.
