Gateway Groups Fall 2018

With the summer behind us and school back in session, now is usually the time of year when we begin to turn our attention to resuming our “normal” schedules (even though we may not even have anyone in our household that’s still in school – how weird is that?!). Our time off has come and gone, our vacations are finished, and our routines are sliding back into place – which is why now is the perfect time to decide to get connected into a Gateway Life Group this fall!

The truth is that, for all of us, immediate demands will always have the power to crowd out even the best of our intentions. It’s like packing a moving truck – If we start with all the little stuff (like lamps and nightstands), there’ll never be enough room for the big stuff later (like mattresses and couches). But if we put the big things in first, then we can squeeze the smaller pieces in around them. In the same way, if we don’t make sure to first carve out a spot in our schedule for vital spiritual priorities, we may find that we’ve built a life without enough room for what’s really important – growing in our relationship with God.

So as you look ahead to the fall and the chance to adjust what will be your new routine, be sure to put some thought into connecting in a Gateway Life Group this year. If you’re ready to join a group right now, just go to and click on the “Learn More” link at the bottom of the group descriptions to receive information. Or you can pick up a Life Group Guide at the front kiosk on Sunday mornings. And if you have any questions at all, just get in touch with Tagg Wolverton, Gateway’s Discipleship Pastor, through email ( or the church office (803-732-0590)!
