What to Expect

What should I expect at church?

At Gateway you can expect to be welcomed warmly and find that the teachings are bible-based and applicable to your life.

Our services last about 60 minutes. Our live, high-energy worship band plays 3-5 fresh and contemporary songs each week. The words will be on the screen, and we encourage you to sing and worship with us.

Please know that we will never single you out or embarrass you in any way. We want you to feel welcome and able to connect with the personal hope and practical help that God offers every human being. Our church was designed for everyone to simply come as you are.

What should I wear?

We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than we are with what you wear. Dress casually and you’ll fit right in.

What about my kids?

We know that parents want their children in safe, learning-rich environments. We also know that your children are looking for fun! We aim to provide both during both our 9:30 & 11:00 Sunday morning worship services, we offer care and teaching for our infants - 4th grade students. Our students Grades 5th - 12th meet to hang out at 10:40 AM in The Warehouse, and for service, teaching and small groups at 11 AM.

Do you accommodate those with special needs?

Our facilities are all handicap accessible, and  we have an amazing Special Needs ministry for our children with special needs. If you are interested in enrolling your child in our Special Needs Ministry, please contact Belinda Thompson, and we will do all we can to assist you. 

How can I get connected?

We want you to join us for our next Starting Point BBQ lunch for newcomers to find out! We'll enjoy a fun, fast-paced informal time together, then introduce you to our staff and provide information about the church.

You'll also get an invite to your follow-up step, Connecting Point, where you learn more about our three connecting environments at Gateway: Worship, Serve & Groups. Connecting Point is also where you may make the decision to become a church member of Gateway.
