Gateway Kids Ministry

Pre-register Kids

Parents rejoice!

Check-in is less hectic now that you can pre-select the family members you want to check in before you even arrive.

All you have to do to check in or out is scan the security code on your phones using the Church Center App. The app is great for other things too: volunteering, giving, or registering for events.

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.


Safety Precautions

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.
