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. Beginning Fall 2017, we will be offering 3 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!
