Happy Wednesday Gateway! 

Here we are, right in the middle of summer, and it’s a busy season at Gateway!

We have just finished a wonderful week at VBS with about 60 kids, and we celebrated on Friday with a 100 ft. slip-n-slide.  Everyone had a great time and several of our children gave their lives to the Lord.   A big thank you to all who helped to make it a success!

This week, we have 14 teens and 2 adults at Camp Crestview.  Please be praying that the Lord would meet each one of them right where they need Him most.  I can’t wait to hear the stories.

‘Awaken the Dawn’, a prayer and worship rally for our state, is going on this Saturday on the steps of the capitol in downtown Salem.  The event will last from 10am until 9pm.  Feel free to come by for any or all of it and join brothers and sisters from all over Oregon.   II Chronicles 7:14 “ If my people, who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.”

Gateway’s All Church Picnic is coming up on Sunday, July 30th.  Join us on the front lawn following second service.  We will be providing the main course and we’re asking everyone to bring a side dish and a pie for the pie contest. 

We will be celebrating baptisms as a family that day as well.  If you wish to be baptized, please contact the church office or let us know on Sunday.  There is still time.  If you’ve already been baptized, come and cheer them on.  It will be a blast!

Looking forward to celebrating all that God is doing in His people!!  See you Sunday!
