Pray

In this time of fear, uncertainty, and global pandemic, we, at Gateway, believe God wants His Church to be awakened to respond in prayer and action. We want to provide you with a prayer guide that is designed to help you pray God’s words over yourself, your family and friends, the city, the nation, and the world. As we unite in prayer and receive God’s call to action in this time, we believe God will hear us and heal the land. (2 Chron 7:14)

Give

Your giving helps meet physical and spiritual needs of thousands of people right here in central Texas and around the world. As you give generously, the impact of your gift is multiplied as we combine our resources to care for those in need.

Make a Mask. Make a Difference.

 

 

We all want to help those around us in times of need, but what can we do from six feet away? Can you help? Making masks is a perfect way to help our community stay safe and show love to those around you, especially with the recent mandate in Austin to wear a mask in public. With your help, we can draw our community closer together, no matter how far away we need to be. Gateway wants to distribute masks to those around us. We’ll be providing masks for volunteers that assist with refugee families or work at our Feed the Community food distribution. Any extras will be donated to the Austin Disaster Relief Network to share with the community.

 

How can I make a mask?
Directions for making sew and no-sew masks can be found at the CDC website.

 

Where do I take them? When?
Gateway will be collecting masks during our Feed the Community food drop-off times at our North Austin, South Austin, and Buda locations.
North Austin: Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
South Austin: Thursday and Saturday between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.
Buda: Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Give Help. Give Blood.

 

 Due to Covid-19, blood donations are down in the Austin area. As Gateway, we want to help. We believe God desires for us to partner with Him by helping meet physical, relational, and spiritual needs that we encounter. One way to do this is to donate blood to help makeup for the shortages. Will you consider signing up to give blood?

 

North Austin location: Tuesday, May 12th between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

 

South Austin location: Tuesday, May 19th between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

 

 

Please do not enter until your appointed time. Donors’ temperature will be checked with a touchless thermometer before entering the blood drive area.  All donors are asked to wear a facemask.  If a donor does not have one, a very limited supply will be available at the blood drive.

Self-isolated Neighbor Card

Pass out self-isolated cards

In times of uncertainty and fear, our neighbors are more in need and more open to help than ever. We are encouraging everyone to go to their neighbors homes asking if they are in need of help, groceries, or prayer. We realize many people might be self-isolating so we have created cards for you to leave at your neighbors door with your information. In the midst of such a pandemic taking place, this actually gives us a better opportunity to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors.
