Wow, the bottles we passed out on Sunday are being returned already, full of donations for Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC)! A few of us visited PRC a while back and we were so impressed with their caring, professional staff, inviting office, donation center full of supplies for baby and mom, ultrasound room where moms hear babies heartbeat for the first time, and the resale store.
Did you know they also visit all our public schools and give talks about abstinence education? PRC provides FREE medical care, pregnancy tests, ultrasound, counseling, parenting classes, material assistance, housing, & post-abortion recovery.
We will have more bottles available this Sunday if you'd still like one. Tax deductible receipts are available if you let us know you'd like one when you turn in your donation. www.santacruzprc.org/... See MoreSee Less

Josh Brady is one of our awesome Youth Ministry Interns at GateWay. He had the honor of sharing a message at Baymonte Christian School during their middle school chapel. He did a great job and used some interesting teaching aids for his message including a fishing pole, push ups, running, a gift, and some money. Hmm, wonder what his message was about? You'll have to ask him! Our kids are blessed to have godly examples pouring truth into their lives every week!
Have a middle or high school student or know one who would grow in a Christ centered environment while having a blast? Here's a link to our youth ministry page, along with meeting times and activities: gatewaybible.org/youth/... See MoreSee Less

Anyone been thinking about baptism? If baptism keeps coming to your mind, it just may be the urging of the Holy Spirit. Baptism symbolizes our death and new life in Christ. It's pretty awesome to watch and encourages us all in our faith. If this speaks to you, bring your bathing suit to church and we'll be ready for you with a t-shirt, shorts, towels, and a warm baptism tank. Every Sunday in May we offer baptisms. 💦
On Sunday we heard a great message about Jesus, the Anchor for our soul, and our Hope. Did you know you can listen to sermons online? Link posted in comments.
