Life is greatest when it's enjoyed with others.

We don’t want to be just a friendly churh. We want to be a churh where you have friendships and can be discipled.

There are four types of groups at Gateway: Small Groups, Care Groups, Grow Groups, and Launch Grouops. Read on for how you can join.

Small Groups

Groups meet weekly for Bible study, serving on mission, and doing fun stuff together. There are more than 20 groups available. Small groups are simply people taking their next steps together. They’re a great avenue to meet new people and develop life-giving friendships.

Care Groups

Groups are for sharing experiences and finding support.

Embrace Grace & Embrace Life

Real support for single, pregnant women and single moms. Our aim is for the church to be the first place a woman turns to during an unplanned pregnancy.

Celebrate Recovery

A Christ-centered 12-step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurts, habits, or hang-ups of any kind, find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling your life.

Grief Share

Walk alongside friendly, caring people through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. Recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

Fostering Love For Tipton

Gateway Launch


Launch is open for all church members. This is a way for those who wish to follow God’s call to go deeper than they’ve ever going before. It isn’t for so called, “super saints”, but for anyone that is willing to commit themselves to growth and then to discipling others.

This is a way for those who wish to follow God’s call to go deeper than they’ve ever gone before.

Daily commitment

It will involve personal, daily study, prayer, scripture memory, and a weekly meeting with a leader.

You’ll be paired with an experience leader as you work growth and becoming a disciple maker yourself.
