Gateway Friends -
Thank you for sharing your Easter weekend with the Gateway community. What a weekend! Gateway hosted our first ever Tenebrae Good Friday service and nearly 200 people encountered the cross in a meaningful way. Was that your first Tenebrae? What were your impressions/feedback? Other than the blackout finale being a bit dark for some, I have heard positive and encouraging feedback.
Three Celebration services on Easter Sunday brought nearly 500 people onto our campus. Did you enjoy the opening dance and song with the kids as much as I did? The music was marvelous, the cookies were endless, the photo booth was a blast, the friendly-factor was energetic, the poem and message were inspiring - but the best part of Sunday was seeing four more people say "YES" to Jesus.
Several of you have asked where I found my Pacman suit and some even asked if you could have it when I was finished. You can find almost anything online, and you can get your own Pacman suit for next year. I'm saving mine for another special occasion.
Remember...Preach the gospel at all times, but WHEN NECESSARY, use words.
Pursue what matters most
