What To Expect
It is never easy to visit a new church for the first time so we want to be as helpful as we can to make your experience a good one. Let's talk about dress. A few people dress up, but most people choose to dress down and come casual. Come the way that you feel most comfortable.
This time is set aside to worship God as a community. We have live upbeat worship with guitars, drums -the works, as well as more intimate songs of worship. Everyone worships in their own unique way – for many, that means singing & clapping, and for others it means quietly reflecting on the words.
Each week there is a time to worship God through the giving of tithes and offerings. As a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attenders, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work he is doing in their lives. It also gives Gateway the means to reach more people for Christ in the future.
the message (sermon)
Every weekend you will hear a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture and is designed to be helpful in your everyday life. We trust that these messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life.
After the service
enjoy some great fellowship
At Gateway worship isn't over when the last "Amen" is said. When the service is over the fellowship begins. This is a time to talk about what we just learned and catch up with friends. Don't plan on leaving early or you'll miss out.
visit the cafe
The cafe is where you can go for a cup of coffee, visit the book store or catch up with your friends.
pick up your kids
Make sure that you have the security tags that nursery and children's workers gave you when you dropped your kids off so that we can ensure your children's safety. Please pick up your children promptly.
