Why We Give
We give because it’s in God’s nature to give. As a church, we support over 100 missionaries and missions organizations in Michigan and around the globe! We also host several “Stock Up” events throughout the year where we give away backpacks, food, and hygiene products to people in need. We strive to be debt free as we help families and individuals live debt free as well. God has called us to be good stewards and to change the world through our generosity!
Faith Promise Giving is a way to help The Gateway Church support missionaries and missions organizations around the world, in the United States, Michigan, and other organizations in our own backyard along the Lakeshore. Faith promises are commitments made by individuals to give regularly scheduled gifts for missions that are above their regular tithe and offerings.
