All-Out Serve during Heaven on Earth
All-Out Serve is an opportunity for our Gateway family, including our Heaven on Earth groups, to meet outside of our homes and the Church’s walls to unleash God's love into our community and to socialize and build stronger relationships with those in our small group.
This will be a great way for Gateway to reach out as one into the community and be the hands and feet of Christ!

Remember that we want to be a blessing to the organizations we serve. Please contact the organization first to determine the needs before planning your serving opportunity.
Each group has its own personality and interests, so don’t limit yourself to the ideas listed below…we encourage you to come up with your own ideas!
Here are some serving ideas that are not directly-related to specific ministry/organizations:
- Pray over a school
- Pray over a fire or police station
- Pray over a hospital or nursing home in your area
See Tom Louis’ blog post for tips on how to conduct a prayer walk.
