Genesis 2:18 begins by saying "It is not good for man to be alone." Although this verse refers a lot to marriage, it can also be used in relation to small group interaction. This statement was made before the fall of sin, God recognized early on that people need people. Join us Sundays at 9:30 a.m. to find "your people". Click the image to learn more.
Connect with others through one of Gateway's Community Groups. Our community groups serve three purposes; evangelism, study, and ministry. One of the easiest ways to bring new people into the church is by small group interaction. Our groups serve this purpose by meeting for fellowship and bible study. Each group is encouraged to create its own ministry in the church or the community. Click the image for more information.
