Small groups

What are Small Groups at Gateway?


Small Groups are just that: small groups of people that meet regularly for Christ centered fellowship. Many of these groups function also as Bible studies and community service groups. Each group is led by a “lay pastor” who is responsible for the group and the people in it. Gateway Small Groups are intended to go beyond simply studying the Bible. They also focus on community involvement, friendship, discipleship, mutual support, and outreach. Click to read more.

Men

One of the most important reasons to have a men's ministry group is to make men's lives more productive, having meaning and purpose. Men represent a tremendous, greatly untapped resource to assist the church in changing and influencing our world for Christ.


A balanced men's ministry represents four biblical mandates:

  1. Evangelizing men to salvation and church membership. 
  2. Establishing men to spiritual maturity.
  3. Equipping men for ministry.
  4. Extending men on mission.


Gateway's Men's ministry exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ by providing the teaching, resources, and opportunity for men to grow deeply in their spiritual walk. Equip men for Christian service at home, church, workplace and community.

Women

One of the words that seems to come up over and over again is FIT. A simple acrostic using this word might help give you an idea of what women at Gateway are really about:


F -- Friendship

I -- Inspiration

T -- Training



We want to develop a strong leadership team that can effectively minister to other women. Don't think you're a leader? Think again! If you can serve, you can lead. After all, wasn't that the type of leader Jesus showed us how to be? We'd love to hear from you.

Senior adults

Our senior adults group is an amazing and dynamic ministry, with many offerings during the week and regular events.


'Builders' and 'Prime Time' have three large Bible studies on Sunday Mornings, one at 8:00AM and two during first service and a study on Wednesday's at 10AM at Gateway Church. Our senior adults also have regular outings and trips, both locally as well as longer excursions.
