25 Forward Field Update
Stay up-to-date about where we're at on this project, and how you can play a role at gateway-community.org/25.
To commemorate Gateway's 25th Anniversary, an offering was received to design and construct athletic fields on our additional land to the south of our campus.
We envision using these fields not only for existing ministry purposes, but to offer the use of these fields to our community for local sports organizations as practice and playing fields and more.
It's our prayer that in welcoming our neighbors onto our campus, they will in time take advantage of opportunities to return for outreach events and worship, and that they would experience the life-changing love of Christ.

How will this be funded?
Campaign (Legacy Offering)
Endowment funding (planned giving)
Planned giving is about giving for the long term. Endowment funds are invested to help ensure that the church can continue its mission and ministry beyond our lifetimes. When we make a planned gift, we are giving to something that will continue in perpetuity. Part of the sense of satisfaction that comes from making a planned gift lies in the knowledge that we can make a lasting impact; we can leave a legacy for generations years to come.
