Your Power.jpg

Gateway Friends -

As we hit the middle of this beautiful month, my prayer is that you will encounter God's great power and that you may see His glory.  We certainly caught a glimpse of God's goodness last Sunday as we celebrated baptisms.  Continue praying for the seven precious people who courageously stepped into the water and declared their faith publicly.  Be courageous and lean into God's amazing grace. 

Join us for Celebration Services this Sunday at 9&11 -  Part two of Titus - "Godly Living in Light of God's Grace."

For HIS glory

Gateway Friends - 
Some of you know our dear friends, Steven & Candyce Wani who serve in Africa.  Last week, you generously gave $1,577 toward their vehicle fund.  Thank you for investing in this precious family.  Will you continue to pray for the Wani family as they settle in to their new home, school, and ministry?

This Sunday, October 7th, we launch a new series in the Book of Titus - Godly living in light of God's grace.  See you at 9 or 11am for Celebration services.

It's not to late to participate in a Life Group.  Check out options on our website - www.Gateway4.com

OUT OF ROWS AND INTO CIRCLES

We value relationships. 

We were not designed to be alone but connected with God and each other. 

Life Groups are an excellent way to belong.

Acts 2:42-46

Hebrews 10:22-25

Gateway Friends -

Oh my, it's 80+ degrees in late September!
Drop everything and go outside. 

Hey, Gateway, something to not drop this FALL is Life Groups.  Jump in, join in, and belong.  Check out the Life Group wall at church or the website for more info.  There are excellent options  every day of the week. 


Psalm 68:6 The Passion Translation (TPT)

To the fatherless he is a father.
To the widow he is a champion friend.
To the lonely he gives a family.
To the prisoners he leads into prosperity until they sing for joy.
This is our Holy God in his Holy Place!
    
Belong to soar

                            IT’S OK TO NOT BE OK,

                IT’S NOT OK TO PRETEND YOU’RE OK,

                    IT’S NOT OK TO STAY THAT WAY.

At Gateway4, we value authenticity, vulnerability, and transformation.  Honesty in our relationships with God and people is essential for growth.  As we begin a new month and a new season (fall), will you prayerfully consider joining a Life Group in September.  It is a great way to 'not be ok, but not stay that way'.  Make community count, invest your life, and watch your faith soar.  LG's launch mid September.  See LG wall in sanctuary or website for topics, times, and more. 

2 Corinthians 3:18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

18 We can all draw close to him with the veil removed from our faces.  And with no veil, we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus.  We are being transfigured into His very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another.  And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

Psalm 150:6  Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!  Praise the Lord!  Gateway Friends - How are you doing with the air quality in the Willamette Valley? With aQi scores in the 150s this week, people are struggling with breathing.  Even local High Schools have cancelled sporting activities.  All of this reminds me how important clean breathable air is.  With the increase in smoke outside, will you join me in praying for Firefighters across our great state of Oregon?  Keep breathing, keep singing, keep praising, keep praying!  In fact, tonight at Gateway4, we will host an inspired evening of Praise, Prayer, and Pie.  Well, the pie portion won't be inspired, but should be tasty. Childcare will be provided for ages 5 yrs and under.  Praising, Greg

Pray Without Ceasing.png

Just imagine how different your life would be if, moment by moment, you were constantly OPEN to God.  Think of how much your experience of yourself, others and the world would change if you were continuously attuned to the loving presence of God, and if you allowed the life of God to flow into and through you with each breath.  Sounds like prayer, doesn't it?

As we transition into the second half of August, my hope and heart is for a greater openess to God through prayer.  Would you join Gateway, during the next two weeks, as we focus our attention and intimacy on Jesus?  Four ways to start your prayers:

1)  Oh, God, I adore You and praise You for who You are.  You are amazing and awesome at                                                                                                                     ___________?  (Adoration)

2)  Father, I confess/repent/apologize and come clean for my sin __________?     (Confession)

3)  Wow, Almighty God, You are so good, and I thank you for _____________?   (Thanksgiving)

4)  Jesus, with so many needs in my life, I'm asking for your assistance with ___________?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      (Supplication)

Open to God

AWAKEN graphic.jpg

Gateway Friends -

Have you started each day this week with praise and prayer?  That was the encouragement from Sunday's AWAKEN message.  The Old Testament story of David in the cave was an example of this.  David was running for his life, yet somehow, he found a way to praise instead of panic . . . a way to pray instead of getting paranoid . . . a way to faith-up instead of fear.  As you face the rest of this HOT week, my prayers are with you.  Keep leaning on Jesus in your trials, tragedies, and victories.  Highs or lows, God is with us and is ready to hear our prayers.  You can count on Him;  He is dependable, capable, reliable, steady, and close.

Join us at 9&11 for "Family Sundays" in August.  This Sunday, we're believing for the Spirit to awaken our senses as we focus on touch.  More watermelons will be served up, and Kid's Activity Packs are loaded with fun goodies.

Awaking the day with praise

Greg
