Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads through our state and the nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as preparing 5min party, to preparing the church bulletins, to leading small groups. Whatever your desire in ministry is we have a place for you to get involved in.


Compassion Outreach

Gateway Family Church is thrilled to be part of the advancing of God’s kingdom around the world. We are dedicated to supporting  missionaries with our money and with our prayers. While supporting missionaries we give the people and opportunity to make a difference in our community and state. If you look at the ministry of Jesus you automatically see that he was filled with Compassion. If we are going to be like Jesus then we to must be filled with compassion and a heart that desires to see others be blessed and be better.


Worship & Media

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in media and technology. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, Using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

Students & Kids

We believe in making an investment into the next generation. One of the greatest ways we can invest into that generation is to make them feel valuable. When it comes to his we feel that God can use them just as he can adults. We encourage students to find a place to serve and get plugged and not just sit. We also offer them their own environment for worship. Gateway Kids is a ministry that focuses to ministering to a young generation. Thrive/Merge also get their own worship experience and a place where they can just be their self while worshipping.


Small Groups

We feel that it is important to grow larger but smaller at the same time. We believe that life change happens through the context of relationship’s. We give people who have a desire to lead an opportunity to lead. We are always looking for people who are willing to lead a small group. Our goal is to develop leaders who love God and love people and though that see peoples lives changed forever.


Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, before the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer team pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and community prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together in different ministries for prayer and encouragement.


How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.

Small Group
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, our church has small groups held in member homes. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve people. At a time designated by your group leader you can participate in the small group study.

Thrive & Merge
Each Wednesday night, Students get to participate in their own service. Service starts at 7pm and is geared for Jr high and Highschool students. We also offer a variety of events and trips for our student to be part of.

Young Adults
Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of our church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

W.I.L.D gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women are a valuable part of the ministry of our church and they need a place to be encouraged but also be able to let loose. If you are looking for a place to grow and also have fun this is a group that you need to be involved in.

Men’s Group
Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Accountability is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages. The men in our church need a place that they can belong to. We believe that success is found in who you surround yourself with. So we offer a safe place for men to be able to find success together.


Gateway Kids
Kids are a gift from God and it’s our job to help them learn God’s word. Gateway Kids is designed to let kids have fun but also learn more about God. Every Sunday they get to learn the bible through song, object lessons and games. Our desire is to have kids tell their parents that don’t want to leave. Gateway Kids also extends to our toddlers and babies through out nursery ministry. In our nurseries our smaller kids and babies get to learn about Jesus and who he is. They learn through teaching that is on they level as well as activities.

Sometimes life gets tough and we get caught up in the business of everything going on around us. Every Wednesday night we offer people an opportunity to to sit and grow together in life. We give people the opportunity to share life’s struggles and also be encouraged. LIFE is designed to allow people to be able to grow from the wisdom of others and the wisdom that God’s word bring’s. If you are looking for a place to sit and laugh but also be encouraged on how to get through life.
