Baby Dedication

December 2nd - December 3rd, 2017

If you are ready to schedule your baby dedication please register today. We are so excited to join you in raising your child in His ways.

Many of our families request a public dedication ceremony in which they vow to be responsible to the Lord for the way they will raise their children. Just as Hannah dedicated her son to the Lord in 1 Samuel chapter 1, and as Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple during his infancy, parents bring their newborn before the congregation to publicly commit to “bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” – Ephesians 6:4.

The presentation of infants to the Lord and His church is more a dedication of parents than of the child. Therefore, parents who are interested in this dedication must have a personal relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior

Freedom and Recovery

February 6th - April 17th, 2018

Freedom & Recovery is Gateway's home for spiritual growth, renewal, and understanding of the spiritual battles we face. This is a 10-week journey where we discover how to overcome addictions, destroy fear and anger, be freed from brokenness and depression, and strengthen the relationships in our lives. Each Tuesday beginning February 6th we will conquer a step in the recovery process and also receive instruction concerning spiritual warfare. The church lobby will be open from 5:30-6:10PM for eating dinner together and then we will begin worship and large group instruction in the auditorium. At about 6:55PM we will break into smaller groups for a time of discussion and prayer with a designated leader. Freedom & Recovery will conclude by 8:30PM. This ministry is currently for adults only.

F&R is a free class. If you need childcare, there will be a link in your confirmation email to register your child(ren). The cost is $50 for the first child and $10 for each additional child. Childcare will last for 10 weeks and they must be registered two weeks before the beginning date. There will also be dinner available each week for $3.

Financial Peace University

February 6th - April 17th, 2018

$0 - $75

Our vision is a debt free church whose people are best positioned to be a blessing to others.

FPU is a 10-week life-changing program that empowers and teaches you how to make the right money decisions to achieve your financial goals and God’s plan for your life. The course includes practical lessons such as: eliminating debt, building wealth, investing, structuring insurance, and giving like never before!

Each session of FPU here at Gateway Fellowship Church begins with curriculum developed and refined by Dave Ramsey over the last three decades, and concludes with practical application of what those principals mean to you here and now as an integral part of our Gateway family.

Over 1 million families worldwide have completed FPU and applying God’s Word radically changes your life. On average, FPU graduates have paid off over $5,300 in debt and saved $2,700 during the program!

The cost for materials is $75. *Couples may share materials and therefore only pay one registration fee. The next course will take place Tuesday nights from 6:00-8:30 beginning February 6, 2018.

Childcare : You will receive a link in your confirmation email should you need to register your child(ren) for childcare. The cost is $50 for the first child and $10 for each additional child for the entire session. Childcare will last for all 10 weeks and children must be registered two weeks prior to February 6th.

Dinner: The church will be opened by 5:30 each Tuesday evening for dinner. Dinner will be available for $3 per person.
