SUB: Gateway Gatherings Suspended

 

Dear Family,

We know for many this is an uncertain time. We continue to think of all of you and pray for you and your families in this time of protecting ourselves as the nation copes with the COVID-19 situation.

Our county, state, and health leaders have asked us to not meet in groups of more than 10 and if possible, stay at home. In order to prevent the spread of disease and protect both our families and community, the Gateway Church of Christ Elders and Ministers have met this week concerning our congregational response to the Coronavirus affecting the country at large. After prayerful deliberation and medical updates, we have made the decision to continue with our online worship services and suspend all live worship service until the end of April.  Lord willing, when the health risks subsidence we will meet in-person again for worship Sunday, May 3, 2020.

We would like to remind you of some things to do.

  • Make sure worship remains a priority in your family.
  • There are many resources online that will provide songs to sing and study materials.
  • Take the necessary precautions. Continue to wash hands correctly and often. Refrain from touching your face. Practice social distancing.
  • Reach out to those who might need help. You could buy supplies for a shut-in and leave it at the door. Make phone calls to other members to keep in contact and to show love and care.
  • Also, do not forget our financial commitments continue. We are continuing to pay bills and support our ministries both local and around the world. Several have asked how they can continue to support our congregation. You can mail your check to the church building where it will be picked up by a staff member or make a contribution through our online site at gatewaycofc.org/give-back.
  • If you have a prayer request, need communion supplies, assistance, or need to talk with Theo please contact the church office.

We love you all and miss being together. We continue to pray that the Lord will protect us, our nation and our world. We know there are many things we can do but we also are convinced that God is the one in charge. Continue to pray, worship, and protect.

May God bless us all in this crisis.

Blessings,

Gateway Church of Christ Leadership
