Gateway Student Ministries (GSM)

News & Updates

GSM meets regularly on Wednesday from 6:30-8:30pm for youth group. Students will gather for a time of games, food, preaching of the Word and Life Groups. 

Gateway After School begins at 4:30pm. The building will be open for students to do homework, hang out with friends, play corn hole, giant Jenga, spikeball, frisbee/soccer golf course, artistic station with adult coloring books, etc. We will provide students with a free hotdog and bag of chips anyone who attends between 4:30-6:00pm. This is the rolling start to youth group that begins at 6:30pm.

  • Just like Gateway on the weekends, we will be adhering to more restaurant style rules.
  • For youth group, unless you have a medical exemption, everyone ought to wear a mask upon entering the building and while they are up and about.
  • But once we are seated for our programming and socially distanced, everyone will be free to take off their masks if they desire. So, the rule of thumb is, standing up= mask on. Sitting down & socially distanced= mask permitted to be off. 
  • Secondly, with the current size of our youth group (70-80 students) we are not able to socially distance well in our usually programming space for the message (The Venue). Therefore, we be utilizing the gym (The Main) for our message time. This will students enough space to socially distance and be able to take their masks off.
  • We will continue to do everything we can to keep a safe environment for our students including temp checking, hand sanitizer, pre-packaged snacks etc.
