Get Connected

Starting Gate

One of the best ways to move out of the crowd and into community is to serve others with others. To find your place to connect, join us at Starting Gate after any of the Sunday services. Just look for the banner right after the service and you will meet others new to Gateway, learn more about who we are as a church and why we do what we do.  You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look at some of our Serve Teams including NextGen, Guest Services as well as Arts & Production.


Birth through elementary programs are offered at both morning services. You can check your children in to our secure childcare area, where they will be cared for by trained volunteers who have passed a background check. We’ll take your cell phone number to notify you if for any reason your child needs you. Our elementary aged kids have a program with their very own small group leaders and engaging productions and discussion.

A middle school program is offered at the 9:30am service. We promise some crazy fun and engaging topics and practical discussion with their peers and small group leaders.

A middle school and high school program is offered at the 11 a.m. service. They’ll have some great teaching and good discussion about real life topics.

Gateway Kids programs are NOT offered at the 6 p.m. service.


A Network is group of 20 or more people who are relationally connected because they’re committed to each other and to serving together. Many of our Networks are oriented around serving to make our Sunday services possible. Others focus on serving in their neighborhoods or serving a group of people with specific needs at Gateway or in the city.  They meet together on a regular basis to connect socially, support one another, and serve together.

Life Groups

Finding community where we can be intentional about our spiritual growth is going to make all the difference in our spiritual journey! Life Groups are 7-15 people who meet together weekly or every other week. We believe transformation happens as we seek to grow in a relationship with Jesus together. We aim to have real and honest conversations as we study the Bible together, all while becoming increasingly known by others who will help us walk out what we learn.


The 7:14 Initiative

In 2020 what if you could Connect with God in a more tangible and powerful way?


Every day at 7:14 a.m. (or anytime that works for you), spend 7-14 minutes (or more) praying and reading the Scriptures using The Bible Project: New Testament In One Year using the YouVersion app.

January 20th - March 9th

8 Week Class
Mondays 6:00-8:00 p.m.


Many women have undergone an abortion and want help to heal emotionally and spiritually. This eight week Bible study was developed out of the author Linda Cochrane’s own healing journey of being freed from the guilt and grief that followed her abortion. With the help of God’s Word and a safe confidential environment women can find the help needed to move through issues such as relief, denial, anger, forgiveness, depression, letting go, and acceptance.


No Childcare. Cost for the class is $10, includes workbook.

Starting January 22nd

Wednesdays at 12:00 p.m.


ALPHA explores the basics of the Christian faith, looking at different questions of belief and designed to create conversation. Everyone is welcome, but Alpha is designed primarily for those who would not call themselves Christians. It’s an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.


During this 8-week class, you’ll have a chance to connect with others who are also exploring faith and God in a fun, relaxed setting. You’ll enjoy a great meal for free, so bring your questions, and we’ll dig in together!

Every 5th Sunday of the Month

Unceasing Prayer is a collaborative effort by over 30 churches in the Greater Austin area to cover our city in prayer 24/7 to see the church in Austin unified with one heart and mind to unceasingly petition God through prayer.

Gateway has committed to pray when there is 5th Sunday in a month. Will you sign up to pray for a 1-hour time slot?


Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

Hurts, habits, and hang ups keep us bound up, feeling alone, and isolated. We offer a faith-based 12-step program that provides support and community for those looking for healing, freedom, and transformation.

Our Wednesday night 12-Step Open Meeting is open to anyone and everyone 50 weeks a year (excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas). Just show up and find a supportive group of people regardless of what your struggle might be.

Childcare is provided from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on Wednesdays for children ages 0-12. No notice is needed.
