MINISTRIES

 We Want to Serve You

As people dedicated to knowing God, we want to do everything we can to make sure that we foster an environment that will help your relationship with God, whether you are just getting introduced or have known each other for years. Therefore we offer a variety of ministries, programs, events, and services to help you grow closer to God. Take a look below at some of what is going on at Gateway, and if you think of something not listed, let us know so that we can better help you and others know God.

Life Groups

During the week, several groups meet at various member's homes for fellowship, support, and Bible study. These groups are critical for getting plugged-in to Gateway and getting to know us. For more information on any of these groups contact our office or staff.
  • Sun 6pm - Youth (Gilbert)
  • Sun 6pm - Atencio (Gilbert)
  • Sun 8pm - Young Adults (Mesa)

Youth (6-12 grade)

For our youth we offer many different ministries: they have their own classes on Sunday mornings and life group Sunday evenings; annual mission trip; periodic retreats; LTC; summer camp; recurring service projects; and plenty of chances to relax and just have fun together! It is our goal for our youth that they develop and learn to maintain a strong faith in God.

Men & Women

Both the men and women of Gateway have many opportunities to get together for special events just for them. The men at Gateway are known to frequently gather for breakfast (lots of bacon!) and prayer, for a friendly poker night, and other special events (classic movies, car shows, etc). The women of Gateway plan and host several events like a mixed-up dinner, but also have their own time at events like the Comedy, Chocolate, and Coffee Night and more. These are just some of the many ways that the men and women of Gateway take time to get to know one another, support each other, and glorify God with their lives.

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website and Youtube. Check out our blog, and download our app for devotionals and more. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.

Family Retreat

Once a year, in early October, the whole church travels up to Prescott, AZ for a weekend retreat. This is a chance for many of us to unwind, destress, and spend quality time with our family, friends, nature, and God. We spend time studying scripture, playing games, flying down a zip-line, canoeing, hiking, roasting marshmallows, and having as much fun as possible! 

Education

In addition to our weekly worship we also offer a variety of educational opportunities for those interested in spending time studying, discussing, and diving deep into God's word. Before worship we offer classes for our kids of all ages and our adults. We also offer a kid's church (we call it Children's Bible Hour - CBH for short) during the sermon most weeks. We strive for these times to be informative, uplifting, and enjoyable.

Makers Ministry
The Makers Ministry currently meets once a month on the first Friday at the building.  They are a dedicated group of ladies (and men if they want to come!) who use their talents for making things, to help others. They knit, crochet, cross stitch, embroider, bead, etc. Their main focus for donations at this time is a fabulous place called Choices Pregnancy Center.  They provide counseling and education for women with unplanned pregnancies.  Contact Marcy with any questions you may have about this group. marcy@gatewaycofc.org
