In-Person Worship

We’re back to our normal service times with live worship, preaching, and Gateway Kids.
We are no longer requiring you to save a seat to attend weekend worship at Gateway. However, we are maintaining limited capacities in our spaces. See details below for how we are keeping safe.
If you are not ready to join us in person, you can still engage with our online experience.

We are following CDC guidelines and county mandates for masks. When attending a service, please continue to follow social distancing practices recommended by the CDC (6 feet apart). Face masks are requested at all services (required for Sunday evening service). If you would like a mask, or team will have some available in the lobby.

We are taking every step of precaution as prescribed by the CDC to ensure that Gateway is safe, secure, and spacious for your family. Seating is spread out. Hand sanitizer is available at every entance and exit for your convenience. We ask everyone to please wear a mask so as to protect those around you. We ask that when you do come to worship that you social distance at least 6 feet apart as best as you can ffrom others. Please do not congregate in the building, but you are welcome to do so outside of the building.  The worship centers and children's spaces will be sanitized before each service including frequently touched services. If you do happen to feel under the weather, we ask you to please stay home.
