How Do I Meet People?

Gateway  Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Gateway  Church.

Taste & See Sunday – The pulpit is for you. – Everybody Needs To Get a Chance to Share God’s Goodness

God’s goodness is amazing. Without it, we are lost. With it, we have all the riches of heaven. Everybody Needs a chance to share their testimonies of God’s Goodness.” On Taste and See Sunday, everyone is welcome to share 2-3 minutes of what God is doing in their life. Services are  held at 10am. For online access from home please contact 805-345-7050.

Small Group,  Wed 7 pm at Various Locations in  Santa Ynez Valley 

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, Gateway Church has small bible studies held in member homes or a the church. The size of the group is anywhere from three to twelve. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study.

Kids Ministry

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction.

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of Gateway Church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

Women’s Group 

Gateway’s Women’s Groups gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.

Men United 

Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Accountability is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages. Accountability groups are formed among the men.  Accountability groups meet together on Thursday as their schedules allow and they keep in touch by email or phone.   .
