Moving from Rows to Circles


Life is Better in Circles!

One of our goals at Gateway is to move people from Rows to Circles. It can be impossible to truly connect on a Sunday morning in a room full of people. However, we desire all of our people to be connected to a Group that meets on a regular basis and provides a space for each person to Experience Community. Each Group is committed to Encountering Jesus in the truth of Scripture, Engaging in prayer together, and helping each other to Embrace the mission that each of us has been called to pursue. 

Both Life Groups & Discovery Groups share the same purpose and goals. Groups may study a Book of the Bible, a Biblical Theme, utilize a teaching video series, or follow a study guide that reviews a weekend conversation from Gateway's pastors. Groups include time for social and service opportunities each semester. We have hundreds of people that connect in Groups each week and we would love you to be one of them!

Discovery Groups gather in 1 of 3 semesters during the year. Each Fall, Spring, & Summer Discovery Groups launch for an 8-10 week semester, meeting WEEKLY during this time period.

Life Groups are encouraged to meet for at least a year together, over 3 concurrent semesters, Fall, Spring, & Summer. They may meet as often as desired, but are encouraged to meet together at a minimum every other week. Each Life Group creates its own schedule. Life Groups are open year-round.

Childcare Reimbursement for Groups!

We believe in “rows to circles” here at GTWY, but we realize that for many of our church family, finding a way to be involved with a group is made just a bit more difficult when little ones are involved. Knowing this, childcare reimbursement is available to parents/guardians to help get even more people into CIRCLES!
