Gateway Fall Retreat

The book of “Revelation” has always been intimidating in many ways. But what if we took a moment to see that St. John, the theologian, the poet and the pastor, gave us an amazing gift with this prophetic work? Instead of being intimidated or bogged down by “predicative” reading, what if we allowed the truth of the letter to encourage us, affirm us, and reveal a bigger, more beautiful vision of Jesus than we could ever imagine?

This years Fall Retreat will be called “Apokalypsis” and we are excited to use the work of Revelation to get us beyond excited about a life that follows Christ.

When: November 11-13th*
Where: Camp Wiregrass in Chancellor, Alabama

Gateway Fall Plans!


What an amazing summer we have had! We are going to slowly enter in the school year and want to let everyone know what we have going on. We had a wonderful Parent Meeting, so here are some of the things for you to know going forward.

Sunday AM Bible Class – 9:00 a.m.
Wednesday Night Worship and Midweek Devotional – 6:00 p.m.
Life Group – Resumes September 25 at 5:30 p.m.

While our standard meeting times don’t have the “luster” of events, I cannot stress enough the importance of growing together as a family that can occur at our bible classes, midweek worship and life groups. This is where the relationships go deeper. The worship transforms. Events are amazing but these day to day moments remind us that this is truly a life together!

We will have our Fall Retreat at Camp Wiregrass on November 11-13 so go on and mark your calendars.
