The Gateway Church Updates
SUNDAY SERVICES and Coronavirus (COVID-19)
November 18, 2020
Dear Church Family,
We had a successful Missions Encounter the past three weeks and want to celebrate what God has and is doing. Thank you all for your Faith Promises and giving to Missions (if you would still like to make a Faith Promise, you can do so online). Faith Promise commitments help our Missions Board know the amount of funds available to support missionaries and missions organizations over the next year.
Over the past month, our area has seen a large increase of COVID cases and in response to Michigan’s MDHHS Emergency Order that was issued on November 15, 2020, and takes effect on November 18, 2020, we will be suspending all in-person services/events at The Gateway Church will be ONLINE ONLY for the next three weeks.
Even though we cannot meet in person, that does not mean that church is canceled! Make sure you join us online on Sundays at 9:00am and 11:00am on Facebook Live!
We had also planned on relaunching kids ministry on December 6th, but we will still be ONLINE ONLY that Sunday. At this time we feel that it would be best to postpone the relaunch until January to give adequate time to continue to prepare both the rooms and volunteers and ensure that once we can relaunch kids ministry we are able to do it well.
While it is always a difficult decision to move our services online, we have many reasons to be encouraged. There is a real sense that the Lord is moving at The Gateway Church! We continue to place our hope in the Lord and put our trust in Him. We love and appreciate each and every one of you, and we will be together again very soon.
