Next Steps

Everyone has a next step they can take in life or in their faith. Whether you are visiting our church for the first time or have been coming for years, we have the next step for you!

Here are some of our next steps!







STEP 1: Newcomers Lunch

Newcomers Lunch is a great opportunity for you to get to know the staff better at The Gateway Church! It’s also a great place to meet others who are new to the church and find out a little bit more about who we are!

STEP 2: Get Connected

What Does It Mean To Be A Member?

Express Your Commitment

Being a member helps you remain faithful and committed to God. As you stand committed to a church and its vision, it helps you to continue in your commitment to Christ as well.

Engage in Leadership

We want your voice to be heard and your DNA to be part of our church’s identity! When you become a member, not only do you have more opportunities to serve, but you also have more chances to be involved in leadership!

Experience Unity

It’s impossible to be a Christian and live in isolation. When you partner with us through membership, it helps you to have a greater impact. By being in unison with others, we are striving together to be part of something bigger than a single person or vision.

Exercise Your Gifts

Every person is important to the body of Christ. Partnering with us through membership allows you to work with the rest of the body, exercising the gifts that God gave you to build up the church!
