Gateway's Regathering Information
When are in-person services?
Sunday services are held at 9AM and 11AM.
How can I participate in a Sunday gathering?
There are two options for connecting with Gateway on Sunday mornings:
- Attend at Gateway in-person by reserving a seat in advance
- Continue watching online at home at mygateway.life/live or on YouTube. Our 9AM service will be live-streamed and available after the service for replay.
Do I have to register for an in-person service?
Yes! We are asking everyone to pre-register for each service. Registration will be open Monday morning at 7AM each week. You can register here or by following the link at the top of mygateway.life. If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 please join us for church online.
What types of regulations apply to Gateway?
We’ve created our processes to meet the intent of the Virginia requirements for religious gatherings. Whenever those regulations are updated, Gateway's guidelines will continue to evolve.
Are masks required for in-person services?
Per CDC guidelines, masks will be optional for those who are fully vaccinated.
What precautions are being taken to ensure the building is clean?
Each week, prior to service, we will have a professional cleaning service clean our space. We will minimize touchpoints. Between services, we will have a team cleaning all chairs and high-touch areas using a cleaning product that kills COVID-19 and similar viruses.
We are looking forward to opening our Sunday morning children's programs for the 11AM service. Gateway's Elementary program will begin in-person classes on Sunday, May 9. Gateway's Preschool program will begin in June.
Our children's programs are opening with a limited capacity; therefore, registration is required.
What protocols are being taken for my child's safety?
All volunteers and elementary children will wear masks while participating in KidzTown. To the best of our ability, children and volunteers will be socially distant. Everyone is asked to sanitize their hands upon entry into each classroom. While we will practice these measures to the best of our ability, we cannot guarantee 100% compliance with young children. Please consider this reality in making the right decision for you and your family.
Do you have a program for babies and toddlers?
At this time, we will not have any programs for children under the age of 3. A family lounge area is available for parents and children to watch the service together.
What happens if registration for the children's program is full?
We encourage you to bring your child to the worship service with you. We will have kids' bags available with coloring sheets and small activities designed to help kids participate in the service. We will also have a family lounge area where you can watch the service with your child.
