COVID-19 has turned everyone’s world upside down. Just like many other organizations, businesses, and churches, we are taking steps to keep our students and their families safe. Here is what we are doing in this unique season:
BIBLE CLASSES & SMALL GROUPS
We have meetings on Zoom five days every week. On Sunday and Wednesday nights, we have an in-depth Bible Study and discussion that last about 45 minutes to an hour. On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays we have a short, fifteen-minute ‘Check-In’ to (you guessed it) check in on our students. If you would like to be a part of these Zoom calls, please reach out to Jared via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
POSTPONE OVER CANCEL
Our ministry’s mantra is ‘Postpone over Cancel.’ Moving forward into the summer, we want to look at every opportunity to still have our events, even if it means moving it back, before considering to cancel. Jared will send out updates via email, Band, & Remind. If you are not receiving updates on any of these platforms and would like to, send an email to Jared at email@example.com.
WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER
We are people of the promise & children of God! Through times of trial, we are being refined to be more like Jesus. God loves us so much and is with us every step of the way through the Holy Spirit. If you need anything, even if it is just someone to pray with you, please do not hesitate to reach out. We’ll get through this!
This year we are celebrating our nine graduating seniors for all they have accomplished! Because of gathering restrictions for COVID-19, we are having a Virtual Senior Sunday on May 17th during our live stream worship service. We will have a normal Senior Sunday once we can all meet together again. If you would like to send our seniors cards or gifts, please reach out to Jared (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get their addresses. Here are this year’s graduates!

We are excited to open up our GSM Store. Throughout the year we will add new products to represent our Student Ministry in multiple ways. These products are available to anyone (NOT JUST GSM STUDENTS) so all are welcome to purchase.
Our logo above will come to represent the Gateway Student Ministry and everything we stand for as followers of Christ so I’m glad we can do that in fun ways. All of the proceeds from the store will go directly into our Mission Fund.
I will be adding a GSM Store link to the menu above so you can always reference it whenever you decide. The products will always be available until they are sold out and everything is first come first serve.
The Gateway Instagram page will also have updated pictures and you can see that on the right of this page (go and follow it for even more details).
Check out the options for Sunglasses and Fanny Packs!
If you are interested in purchasing something, you can email me using the “Contact” tab on the menu and I will have it ready for you.
Have a wonderful day!
Our intent for this website is to keep everyone posted in yet another form of communication. Sign up sheets, information sheets, all of these things will be posted here regularly, giving everyone unlimited access to these things whenever they need them. On occasion, we will post about curriculum, intents of certain trips/events/programs, visions behind our ministry. The main idea is to have yet another form of communication for our ever growing Youth Ministry.
