Gateway Friends,

The heavens proclaim the glory of God.  The skies display his craftsmanship.  Psalm 19:1 NLT

Have you enjoyed the blue skies and sunny days of summer in the Willamette Valley?  Summer zoomed by and Gateway experienced some amazing memories.  In June, a dozen Youth and Adults made a difference during the Kaleo Mission Trip.  In July, a group of Middle and High Schoolers had a blast at Camp Crestview.  We also hosted our first ever VBS Kids Camp.  Only two weeks ago, many traveled to Fern Ridge for Family Camp. These, and so many other experiences, helped build community and life long memories. 

Now we transition to September!!  This means kids will return to school and the football season starts.  At Gateway, we will launch the fall season schedule.  Join us on September 18th for our annual Connections Fair to discover ways to plug in.

This Sunday, we wrap up our Superheroes series on the greatest hero of all, JESUS. This will be a meaningful service - filled with inspired worship music, Communion, and a stirring Word of encouragement.  If you're in town this Labor Day weekend, please join us for Celebration Services at 9 & 11am.  Next week we begin a new sermon series titled, CONSUMED.  Stay tuned for more info on Gateway give-aways during this season of seeking God's contentment for our lives.

Lastly, I would like to personally extend my deep gratitude for the Gateway Staff.  During my recent vacation/breather/get-away with Stacey, we realized afresh, how fabulous the Team is.  Each has worked diligently this summer season and I'm so thankful for our gifted, generous, godly crew of servant-leaders (Karen, Lynise, Corky, Aaron, Louis-Claude, Lynn, Don, Heather and so many others).  Doing Church as a Team!
