Our worship services focus on praising God through our songs, prayers, and response to His Word, the Bible.
Services are approximately 75 minutes long (10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.).
The sermons are about 35 minutes in length. We preach verse by verse through books of the Bible (something you may hear called expository preaching), with occasional topical studies once or twice a year that last for a few weeks to help us grow in a particular area of following Christ. Presently, Pastor Grady is preaching through the book of Ephesians. Previously, we studied verse by verse through the entire Gospel of John as well as did a five week study on "What is Biblical Community?" We use the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible in our worship services.
Our praise time in song typically includes five congregational songs during the service. Words will be on the screen for you. Our music is led by our worship leader, Ashley, and one of Gateway's praise teams that includes people playing a variety of instruments. Our songs tend to be more contemporary in feel, but also very theological and focused on glorifying God.
People tend to dress more casually at Gateway. You may see a few people in "Sunday dress," but most come in business casual, with some very casual as well!
Gateway loves kids! During the worship service, we offer child care for babies through 5 year kindergarten. During most of the school year we offer Kids Worship as well for children in 1st through 4th grade. See our Gateway Kids page to learn more about our philosophy of child care and what we do to keep your children safe when they are on the Gateway campus.
If you prefer to keep your children in the service with you, you are very welcome to do so! Children are a blessing from the Lord, and their movements and sounds are the sounds of life. We are glad for them to be present with you if you prefer.
Gateway is located at 3300 Bell Road.
We are near the intersection of Bell Road and Vaughn Road.
