Answered Prayer 2015

This week, as is traditional for the Sunday between Christmas and New Year's, we're having a brunch together in place of the Sunday morning service.

This is always a wonderful time to meet new people and to be able to enjoy food and sit down and talk with other Gateway folks.

Since there's no sermon to think about this week, and since 2015 is drawing to a close, let's make this post a place to list answers to prayer that we've seen in 2015.

Gateway itself has had answers to prayer with our building program.

We got the bank loan we needed, and we will soon be ready to break ground on our Community Resource Center.

How about you?  Gateway folks, please add comments to tell us the prayers you've seen God answer in 2015!

Resources for Dealing with Grief

Over the past few weeks we have been going through a series titled, "How to Deal with How You Feel."  Each week we have tackled a different emotion and looked at what the bible tells us about how to respond to it.

This past Sunday we tackled the emotion of grief.  In order to help those who may be dealing with grief, we've compiled a list of some resources you can look into.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it should give you a good place to start if you'd like more information on tackling grief.  We've also provided a link to each book on Amazon when possible.
