The results are in. . .

PhotoThe chili cook off was a wonderful success. We had 16 people enter chili and a lot of families come for fellowship. Better than that we collected a great amount of coats to give away to families in need! We will still be accepting donations of winter coats at the back of the worship center near the sound booth through the end of October.

270 Blaydes

The house behind the main campus, located at 270 Blaydes, along with all of our buildings, serves as a multipurpose facility. Students meet there an hour a week on Sunday mornings, Celebrate Recovery meets for a few hours on Thursday nights, and many other activities that take place throughout the month.

SO… “The Youth House” is a misnomer. We want to be able to direct people to events that happen at that location. Will you help us name the building? Submit your suggestions below and we’ll give a t-shirt prize pack to the winning name. THANK YOU!

BBQ Fest Team Name Contest

Gateway will be entering the 2013 Atoka BBQ Fest. On April 5th and 6th at Nancy lane Park, our team will be grilling pulled pork and ribs. The cooks have met to discuss meat, rubs, and sauces. They’ve been talking about smokers, charcoal, and tents. The Official Team Entry Form has been completed.  Excitement is a plenty, but something is missing.


We don’t have a Team Name! This will set our identity in the community. It needs to be something memorable, fresh, even zingy, (but nothing too renegade). We want to hear from you. What do you think our Team Name should be? This is YOUR chance to contribute to a piece of history!

What’s a contest without a prize?  We’ll give the winner a Simply Follow T-Shirt and a 2013 Atoka BBQ Fest apron. Winning team name will be chosen on Friday, March 8th.

Get cookin’!
