What to Expect

Gateway is full of energy around Christmas time. We welcome all to celebrate no matter your background. We have three types of services to choose from—family services, candlelight services, and a contemplative service. We hope you can join us for the Christmas season, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior!


What are the family services like?


This interactive service is designed for children and their families. Wiggly, noisy, excited and happy children are encouraged to bring their grown-ups to this service! This is perfect for families with young ones, toddlers through elementary.


If you'd like, your child can dress up as an angel, a wise man, or a shepherd to be ready to engage in the story of Jesus!


What is the candlelight service like?

Our candlelight Christmas Eve service includes worship songs, readings, and lighting of candles. All are welcome to attend!


What is the contemplative service?

The contemplative service takes place at 11p.m., which will bring us into Christmas day. It is a low-key, acoustic experience.


Is there a dress code?

There is no formal dress code here. Whether it's your Christmas best or your ugly Christmas sweater, come as yourself!


Is there an opportunity for photos?

There will be a photo area set up next to the cafe in our lobby.
