Groups at Gateway are the place where we get connected and share our lives with one another. Being connected to others encourages us to grow, care and serve together. We offer three types of groups: activity groups, classes and small groups. We believe church is more than just what happens on Sunday. We hope you'll join a group, connect and have fun together, while experiencing and living out authentic Christian community.


WE'RE EXCITED FOR YOU TO JOIN US THIS FALL!  search for a group below!

Small Groups

Levi-Carney Group for Families

Saturday, 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Day: Saturday

Time: 4:00-6:00pm
Aldie area
Leaders: Lisa and Chris Levi/Leo and Karen Carney

Childcare is provided.

Acts 2:42 says, "And they continued in the Apostles’ doctrine, and fellowship, and breaking of bread, and prayers." This is the verse our small group uses as its mission statement. We are a new group consisting of families with kids in Kindergarten through High School, navigating life with God's Word as our compass. We get together to draw closer to Him and to one another through study, prayer, meals, spending time together, and serving our community in order to foster true Christian community where anyone can come and be accepted. Our studies consist of foundational topics to instruct new believers in the basics of "walking the walk" as well as re-enforce those basics for long time saints.

This trimester we are studying some of Jesus’s parables and exploring their applicability both then and now.
