Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates at The Gateway Church

 

Gateway Family,

The State of Michigan has issued a ‘Stay Home — Stay Safe’ order effective Friday, March 24, through Monday, April 13. Therefore, we have cancelled all Sunday morning and midweek services on-campus at The Gateway Church. We have also postponed our Connect Groups for now. While saddened that we will not be able to gather physically, we believe the health and safety of our community is a top priority.

This does not mean that we will take a break from church. We ARE the church! Church is more than merely a gathering though church service WILL be meeting online! We will stream our services via our Facebook Page. We will continue ministry and reaching out to our community during this time and encourage you to set up your online giving , set up billpay at your bank, or consider mailing (address below) in your tithe and offerings. Even though we will not be meeting physically, we are still committed to provide financial support for our missionaries locally, stateside, and around the world. Our offices are closed but phones will still be answered Tuesday through Friday, 9 am – 4 pm, and even if we are unable to answer your call you can leave us a voice message, we will be checking those regularly. So if you need anything, including assistance setting up online giving, call the church office at 231-799-2141.

We know you will likely have additional questions, and we will continue to communicate updates through our website, email, and on Facebook. Our pastors and leadership are available to minister to you.

We must also remember that God has not called us to live in fear but in faith. As Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” Together we have faith to receive everything that God has promised to us by His word. We will continue to experience a wonderful, Spirit-filled atmosphere online, and we look forward to ministering to you each week.
