We are taking small steps in reopening our children's ministry department. The first phase will be the availability of several classrooms for Nursery through Preschool age children if parents want a safe place to take their children during services. Parents must stay with their children and self supervise. Live streaming of the service can be viewed on monitors as your children are playing. School-age children (Kindergarten -Grade 5) will remain in the sanctuary and a short lesson will be presented at the beginning of the service. Youth (Grades 6-12) will be meeting periodically after the service. The first meeting is Sunday, September 13th. Thank you for your patience as we move slowly to navigate back to our normal schedule. The safety of our children and staff is our Number One consideration.
We are asking for a spirit of cooperation with the governor's order to wear masks in our church services. Please let's all work together in love and respect during this trying time for everyone. Thank you all for understanding.
Yes, our long awaited date to re-open is finally here! The church has been cleaned and prepared for you to come back. We will be taking precautions and using safe distancing measures to insure that everyone feels safe. Members will be receiving a letter soon for more details about the "Homecoming". Service begins at 10 am and Facebook Live begins streaming at 10:30 am. See you soon!
Due to the state-wide "stay at home" order from our governor, all services, meetings and activities have been cancelled at this time. We will be monitoring the fast-changing situation and keep you posted as to when we will be returning to our regular schedule. We will continue our online Sunday service at 10 am and our Wednesday Prayer at 6:30 pm via Facebook Live. We encourage you to gather your family together to engage in these venues. It's really important to stay connected. The office is closed to walk-in traffic; however, the secretary will be available in the office to receive your calls. Feel free to contact us at (330) 674-2748 if you need assistance. STAY SAFE!
There will be no corporate prayer meeting tonight at the church; however, Pastor Larry will be on Facebook Live at 6:30 pm. . Please join us! We will continue to have our weekly prayer using different venues. We are currently exploring our options and will keep you posted. All other small groups are suspended until further notice. Watch for further updates.
In response to the Coronavirus situation, Gateway's leadership has made the decision to suspend Sunday worship services through the end of March. Although religious gatherings are not restricted to meet, we want to take proactive measures and cooperate with the spirit of this order from our Governor, Mike DeWine. While we will not have corporate Sunday meetings, we will be live streaming the service on Facebook at 10 am from the Gateway Facebook page. We encourage you to gather your family to participate from home.
Wednesday evening prayer service and most small groups will continue to meet until further notice. Contact your small group leader if you have any questions. Also, please don't forget to send in your tithes and offerings. The church still has financial obligations to fulfill. You can give either online (on this website) or by mail: PO Box 31, Millersburg, OH 44654. Also, the church office will maintain its regular hours if you want to drop off your contributions.
Thank you for your understanding during this time of adjustment.
