New to GATEWAY?

WELCOME!

Church can be an intimidating place to visit — especially if you don’t know what to expect. We invite you to experience what the gospel means both intellectually and relationally at one of our Sunday worship services. You can engage with others as much as you want, or remain anonymous if you prefer. We hope that through visiting with us, you will experience the hope, love and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.

More information is given in the next section. You are always welcome to call the church office at 516-596-7222 or email us at gatewayvs@gmail.com with your questions and we will promptly answer you.

POLICY ON GIVING

We never pressure anyone to give. But we encourage all of our members to practice tithing, which is the standard for giving in the Bible.


There are multiple ways to give- from in person giving during the service to using our app to using Zelle. We always give you an year end stateent for whatever amount you have given during that year. 

Sunday Services

You can expect friendly and authentic people, engaging and relevant music and worship, compelling preaching from the Bible, and an opportunity to encounter God. You will be encouraged and maybe even challenged.

WHAT TO EXPECT

You can expect a spirit filled worship session as we start our service. Our children stays with us during the worship time. They will go their classes after the worship. We have classes for 3-13 yrs old. Older kids are expected to stay with their parents and listen to the message.


Our Pastor is a respected Bible teacher and most of his messages are teaching messages. It is always presented in an easy to understand format. He has a knack to present even deep subjects in an understandable manner. Visit our media page to watch one of the messages preached by clicking here

WHAT TO WEAR

We look at worship as an audience with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. As such we believe in 'dressing up' for the church. But that does not mean fully formal dressing is required. Casually formal may be the right waord. Dress like when you go for a formal occasion like a birthday party or something. But in Gateway we do not dwell on the dress code. 



THE FORMATS

Since the Pandemic started, we had to close our church more than once, to follow the guidelins. Our goal is to be a blessing to all. As such, we work with the government regulations.


Our Sunday service is in person with social distancing until further notice. We do this by skippng alternate pews and placing chairs behind the pews with social distancing. We will ask you to sign in and take your temperature during this season (for ecords sake).


Our midweek service is on a phoneline (657-390-4988) on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm. All other services are on Zoom as needed
