We received a nice thank you card this week: “As you all know, our community experienced a devastating fire recently. We lost lives, homes and businesses. What we gained was a more powerful love of God and his goodness. That goodness is you and your GateWay family: helping, praying and making us here in Sonoma County feel your blessings and love. Your generous gift will help many of those in need in our community. Thank you and God bless! “

We received this thank you in response to a $5000 donation to Napa/Sonoma fire relief through Global Impact.

The GLOBAL IMPACT team has donated $5000 towards the Sonoma & Napa County Fires Fund. We are all concerned for the Napa/Sonoma and surrounding communities affected by the recent fires. Let's join in prayer for these communities and the first responders. Pray for the broader body of Christ as they are challenged in serving their families and communities in the midst of loss. GateWay is a member of NextGen Churches, an association of churches networked together in Northern California and Nevada. The funds will be distributed to NextGen churches in Santa Rosa (Spring Hills and Redemption Hill Churches, who are coordinating with FEMA and other local churches) as they serve those affected by this devastation. ...

GLENNON CULWELL, ORIGINAL PASTOR FOR VALLEY BAPTIST CHURCH (Gateway Bible Church), FOUNDER OF BAYMONTE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL, & 2-TIME SCOTTS VALLEY MAYOR PASSES AWAY
Services will be held on Saturday, October 21st at 10am for Glennon Culwell, who passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on September 25th, 2017 in Scotts Valley. He was 91 years old.

Glennon was born in a small farm house on the plains of West Texas on August 26, 1926. During his childhood years, Glennon helped his family work a cotton and dairy farm. In 1944, at the age of 17, he enlisted (claiming to be 18) in the army and served briefly on the Philippine Island of Luzon in the last days of World War 2. He later graduated from Chico State College and Southwest Baptist Seminary. He met his beloved wife, Jeannie, when she was caring for his mother at Cook Memorial Children's Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. They were married for 53 years until her death in 2007.

Glennon moved his wife and two daughters to Scotts Valley, California in 1958 when he became the Pastor of Valley Baptist Church, which is now known as Gateway Bible Church. He pastored the church for 28 years, during which time he led in the founding of Baymonte Christian School in 1968. The church and school have ministered to countless families in Scotts Valley and the surrounding communities.

Glennon retired from his full time ministry at the church in 1986, but continued to actively minister throughout Northern California as an Interim/Transitional Pastor with, what is now known as, Next Generation Churches. During that same time, he served on the Scotts Valley City Council from 1987 to 1991. He served as the City's Mayor his final two years on the council.

He is survived by his five children, Shirley Bramer of Auburn, Janet Culwell of Scotts Valley, Christian Culwell of Santa Maria, Andrew Culwell of Napa and Stephen Duncan of Boulder Creek; foster children David Newton of Ontario, Lisa Bauer of Ben Lomond, Daniel Newton of Illinois and Michael Williams of Oregon. Glennon also leaves his brother Bob Culwell of Texas, seven grandchilden and four great grandchildren.

A memorial celebration will be held on Saturday, October 21st at Gateway Bible Church, 5000 Granite Creek Road, Scotts Valley, beginning at 10:00 AM. Pastor Brad Franklin and Glennon's son, Chris Culwell will officiate the ceremony with Pastor Fred Hennes. Any kind acts of charity may be made in Glennon's memory to Baymonte Christian School, C/O Gateway Bible Church.

Sermon Study
Join us! Starting this Sunday!
With the positive response to people desiring to join a LIFE GROUP, we found ourselves with not enough groups to offer everyone. Beginning this Sunday, October 1st, we will be offering a 5 week alternative to LIFE GROUPS on Sunday mornings during the 2nd service called a Sermon Study Class. It will begin at 11am in the Culwell Den. This class will be similar to LIFE GROUPS in that we will be discussing the sermon notes and growing together as we study the Word and begin to apply it to our lives. Eric and Donna Kvamme will be facilitating the class. We hope to see you there Sunday 11am!
