Our worship services focus on praising God through our songs, prayers, and response to His Word, the Bible. 

Services are approximately 75 minutes long (10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.).

The sermons are about 30 minutes in length. We primarily preach verse by verse through books of the Bible (something you may hear called expository preaching), with occasional topical studies weeks to help us grow in a particular area of following Christ.

Presently, we are taking ten months to journey through Genesis 1-11 as we look at the foundations of our faith.

We recently completed a year-long series in 1 Peter.  In previous years we have studied James, the Psalms, Ephesians, the Gospel of John, and a year long journey through the New City Catechism that we called Rooted.

We use the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible in our worship services.

Our praise time in song typically includes four congregational songs during the service. Words will be on the screen for you. Our songs tend to be more contemporary in feel, but also very theological and focused on glorifying God.  We post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter our worship service order each week so you can reflect on the text and even think about song lyrics before you arrive. 

People tend to dress more casually at Gateway. You may see a few people in "Sunday dress," but most come in business casual, with some very casual as well!

Gateway Worship Service


Gateway loves kids! During the worship service, we offer child care for babies through 5-year kindergarten.

See our Gateway Kids page to learn more about our philosophy of child care and what we do to keep your children safe when they are on the Gateway campus.

To save you time at the preschool check-in for your first visit, we encourage you to pre-register so your children's information is already entered and ready for you to check them in at the kiosks.

If you prefer to keep your children in the service with you, you are very welcome to do so! Children are a blessing from the Lord, and their movements and sounds are the sounds of life. We are glad for them to be present with you if you prefer.

In addition, children in grades 1-4 are able to attend Kids Worship during the sermon part of the service for a special teaching time for them.
