Club W - K TO 5TH GRADE

The 2023-24 Club W season is over, but Club W Summer Edition is coming!


Club W is the place we help kids explore God’s Word and God’s World. It’s a fun place for Gateway’s kids to share their faith with their friends and neighbors. It’s also a great way for kids from the community to have fun learning all kinds of skills and activities as they get to know Jesus.


We spend the first part of each Club W session in Rally Time where we sing fun worship songs together and present a short Bible message. After Rally, kids head off to elective clubs where they explore God's World through the hobbies and interests of our caring volunteers. Our clubs have included diverse activities such as archery, cooking, carpentry, scrapbooking, sewing, sports, gym games, crafts of all kinds and many, many more.


Club W is offered on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 during the school year. It's also a parent participation program so moms, dads and grandparents are invited too.


If your child attended the 2023 Club W Summer Edition in June, their registration from that will work for the whole 2023-24 Club W season. If not, you can register your child when you drop them off for their first time. You can also print out a registration form linked here and bring it with your child. Clubs change each month so kids will need to sign up each month for the club they want for that month. Club sign-up forms will be on our registration table and they just require your child's name and your initials.

Kid's Church - K to 5th grade

Kid's Church is all about helping kids take the next step in becoming mature Christ followers. We do this by creating a dynamic environment that incorporates skilled Bible teaching, fun video elements, lots of face to face interaction, and hands on activities.


We begin each Kid's Church session in large group in which kids from kindergarten all the way up to 5th grade are all together. This is where our gifted teachers introduce the main Bible point and verse. In large group kids also get to watch a fun video skit and an animated Bible story which keep the pace moving so we can hold kids’ attention as they learn. It’s all designed to reinforce the foundational Bible truth being taught in the day’s main point and it sets the stage for the further learning that takes place in the small group time.


After the large group time kids head for small groups where they circle up and interact face to face with kids their own age and leaders who are committed to knowing, loving and teaching them. Kids talk about the lesson together and do all kinds of activities that reinforce what they learn in large group. The small group environment is a safe place for kids to build community as they learn. Because these groups are age-graded we’re able to teach Bible in ways that capitalize on the unique stages of development that each age presents.

The Children's Center - birth to 5 yrs


The Children’s Center provides a safe and loving environment that allows our youngest children to experience the nurturing character of God through the excellent care of others while freeing parents to focus on the worship service.


The Children’s Center cares for children, birth through three years, and is  available during the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services. You will find the Children's Center across the lobby from the entrance to our main Auditorium.


Kingdom Kids is our Bible teaching program for preschool aged children. The class takes place during the second half of the worship service. Children who desire to attend are dismissed as a group at the appropriate time in the service by a worship leader. Parents should accompany their children to this class for a quick checkin procedure while the worship service pauses for a greeting time.
