A shortlist of some of the events, activities, and community outreach sponsored by Gateway Church of Christ
Once per month, we prepare and deliver a hot meal to our shut-in’s and members who are sick. This provides a great opportunity for fellowship while working together on packaging the meals, as well as offering opportunities for visitation to members that deliver the meals
Super Summer Sunday Nights
Throughout the summer, we have a potluck dinner, Bible study, and fun outdoor activities for the kids (including wading pools and a water slide)
ChristNet is a community, all-faith-based organization that combines resources to provide help to the homeless in our community. Once per month, Gateway provides breakfast and lunch for approximately 36. In May, we will prepare & deliver hot dinners for a week to the ChristNet clients.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
A week-long, fun-filled look into God’s word through fun activities, skits, songs, treats, and playtime together
Merry Mat Makers
We meet once per week to work on making sleeping mats for the homeless. These are crocheted or woven from plastic grocery bags.
WINGS (Widows In Need of God's Strength)
These ladies meet regularly to encourage one another, pray together, share resources, and often have a meal together.
Clients receive 1 gallon of milk, 2 dozen eggs, 2 lbs. margarine, 2 loaves of bread; in addition to anything else they need that is in our pantry.
Once per month, our younger children are treated to Bible stories, activities, crafts and goodies
These folks are “the face of Gateway”, welcoming members and visitors, showing all who enter that we are a family.
Recovery Through Christ
A recovery program for people going through various different struggles in their life.
Gateway will be taking our VBS to a small congregation in Michigan City, Indiana, in July of this year
Dinner for Donation
When the need arises for extra funds for a teen excursion (i.e., Challenge Youth Conference), several of our best cooks pull together a meal for the congregation. Attendees are asked to donate whatever they want.
Our very active senior citizens have a monthly meeting, potluck, and game night.
Suzy Peper is a licensed professional counselor providing various counseling services for Gateway members and the community.
Every year, our 3rd – 12th graders participate in an area-wide Bible knowledge/trivia competition.
Gateway families invite friends & family for an evening of sweet fun, making festive gingerbread houses that are then given to shut-in’s or special family or friends.
Every year around Halloween, friends and family are invited to wear a costume and roam around among the vehicles in our parking lot that are decorated for Halloween, while treats are enjoyed by all.
The ladies of the church put together a meal and collect for a group gift to help celebrate the occasion.
When a member of Gateway passes away, the church provides a meal for the family and their friends after the funeral.
