This committee oversees community events such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Thanksgiving Turkey giveaway, the Back to School Backpack Bash, and Trunk or Treat. 

Scott Merrin is our Outreach Coordinator, contact the church office for more details. 


Each year we have several local campaigns to raise awareness and funds for global missions.  Whether it is by traveling on a Work and Witness team, giving to Faith Promise, or bringing in change-filled boxes for the semiannual Alabaster offerings, Gateway's congregation is always so generous.  

In addition to prayer and financial support, try picking up a missionary book in the church lobby. Books are also available to download to your favorite device. See Elsie or Joan at the book booth for details.
