Gateway’s commitment to stay connected with you during COVID-19

A Letter from our Lead Pastor


I know this is a tough time for many people, as fear and uncertainty abound. Daily we are getting news that greatly affects our lives. With the Mayor of Austin mandating no meetings over 250 and now the President asking for no meetings of more than 10, it’s time to BE the church in a new way.

First, we’ve always said at Gateway that the church is not a building, it’s not a service–church is people, loving God and loving people. This is our opportunity to rally and BE the church to each other and to our friends and neighbors in need of hope and peace.

But how can we do that when we can’t meet? Let’s get creative by meeting and connecting online.

Sundays, all of our campuses will join us online at 9:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m., and 6 p.m. Gather with your family or a few friends (no more than 10 healthy ones), watch the service, and discuss it using our message Next Steps. As we recalibrate and prepare to meet crisis needs all over our city, please consider giving generously online to the campus you normally attend.

Life Groups, Community Groups, Restore Groups, and seminars of 10 to 100 people can gather online using Zoom, Google Meet, or other platforms. My Life Group with the Overseers and Board has always met on Zoom — it works great!

This is the time for the church to show what we’re all about — loving God by loving everyone, life by life. Think of ways to encourage, pray for, and serve people online. Pray for our world, nation, city, and church. And point people to the God who loves them and is in control through it all. Let’s be the Church through this challenging time, come out stronger than we were before, and bring hope to people around us.

Check back regularly on our website and the Gateway Church Austin app as we come up with new ideas and opportunities to make a difference in this season.
