A huge “Thank You” to all of our VBS volunteers! It was an incredible week with over 200 students, 130 volunteers, and several decisions to follow Christ!  The best line from VBS came from one of our youngest participants trying to convince mom to let her come back to VBS.  She said, “Mom, I just want to learn more about Jesus!”


Our next simply follow summer event is right around the corner!  Over one hundred youth and college students will be making Gateway their home June 24-29!  They will be here to work on mission projects in our community and all over Tipton County.  Our goal is to make this the best week of their lives!  Some of your classes and small groups will be asked to help in various ways.  If you are interested in adopting a group of students that week to do special things for them, please let us know.  Pray for these students and their witness in our community!


Gateway Fireworks Celebration is hitting the streets this year on July 5!  We have the unique opportunity to partner with the City of Atoka in celebrating Independence Day and the opening of the new splash pad at Walker Park!  It’s a great chance to serve our community with the love of Jesus!  There will be all kinds of games, inflatables, food, fun, and of course, fireworks!  It’s going to be an incredible event for all, but remember we are there to SERVE.  It is going to take ALL of us!  Many of you are already committed in some way!  We still need Sunday School classes to respond  to various needs.  Call the office at 837-8087 if you are not in a group and want to serve in some way!

Simply Follow Summer is under way and off to a great start!  How are you offering yourself to this summer of ministry and outreach?
