Gateway Friends

Happy Wednesday Gateway family!

I hope you had an amazing 4th of July weekend with family and friends!

This week we start a brand new series titled 'Merica.  

In case you missed the Kid's Ministry huddle last week, I wanted to update you on a transition that is happening with our Children's Ministry.  Hannah Herrera, our Children's Director, is going to be transitioning out of this role.  Due to a number of things going on with family, and a new opportunity in her life, her last Sunday as Children's Director will be this coming Sunday, July 10th.  Hannah will be attending New Hope Christian College in Eugene beginning this August. We are so grateful to her for all that she has done for our children.  Be sure to give her some love, and thank her personally this week.  

Though the transition is not easy or fun, it is a part of church life.  So, where do we go from here?  We currently have a great group of children's volunteers and, of course, it would be great to add a few more.  This team will continue to care for our little ones as if nothing has changed.  We value children at Gateway, and they will continue to be of the highest priority.  Vacation Bible School is still happening at the end of the month, and it will be amazing!  

Our heart is to seek the Lord for who will be the next Director for our kids. God is fully in charge, and we are believing for great things in this coming season.  

Please connect with Hannah this week if you have any questions about her transition.  If you have any questions or concerns about anything else, please feel free to contact me directly. 

It is an honor to love Jesus and serve our community with all of you!  Have a blessed week.  We are looking forward to this Sunday.

Aaron and Team
