Women's Ministry

Dear Ladies of Gateway,

Women’s Bible Study to Start:

Revelation - LifeChange Series - 15-week study
September 20th - November 8th (Tuesday)
20000 Gem Ct, CV (downstairs)

This Fall’s Women’s Bible Study Session will be on the book of Revelation.
This is a 15-week study. We will do the first eight lessons this Fall and the next seven in the Winter Session. You can get your book from Amazon.

Women of Gateway are invited to join us for this mysterious yet fascinating book of the Bible. “Gain insight into one of the Bible’s most confusing and controversial, books. See how John’s first readers would have understood his apocalyptic visions as well as how others have interpreted these visions throughout church history…and walk away with a clearer understanding of how John’s images bolstered the faith of the churches he loved and how they can fortify your own faith today.”
Come grow with us as we dig into God’s Word, to know Him better, and gain knowledge and understanding. Please RSVP, so I know who will be coming.

All are welcome to come and learn more of God’s Word.
RSVP on Realm or Contact Rebecca Blackburn,

Books will be provided for those of you who want to join us, but please rsvp to let Rebecca know. Unfortunately there is no childcare.


Youth Ministry

We will meet on the 3rd Sundays each month at 1 pm. 

We will be meeting in a classroom on the second floor of our San Lorenzo location. We are looking forward to coming together to worship God and to spend time in His Word. We hope you join us as we look to grow, learn and have fun together.

All youth are welcome.

We desire the next generation to be:

KNOWING (Knowing Christ) we disciple the next generation to know Christ as supremely glorious. Christ, as the second person of the Trinity, He has existed for all eternity. He is the creator of the world and was born of the virgin Mary. Christ led a sinless life and served as our substitute, offering himself as a sacrifice to reconcile us with God the Father. After his death, he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, ascending to heaven. Currently, Christ is seated at the right hand of the throne of God and will return to establish his eternal reign.

APPLYING (Scripture Centered) we establish the next generation in the foundation of God’s Word for life and godliness. Our desire is to delve into God’s revelation of Himself as described in His written Word and to help the youth see and understand Scripture’s relevance to our daily life. We desire to see the youth come to know the Lord and to submit to the lordship of Christ in every area of their lives. The central focus of all youth fellowship times will be around God’s Word through either direct study of Scriptures, or solid extrabiblical content that is an exegetical exposition on Scripture.

PROCLAIMING (Mission-Minded) we equip the next generation to join God’s mission of glorifying His name by making disciples of all nations. We desire to see the youth come to know the Lord, to submit under His lordship, and to be unashamed to proclaim the good news of the gospel in their context – school, work, etc.

Books that we studied with our youth:

  • Kevin DeYoung "Taking God at His Word" (2021)
  • John MacArthur "None Other" (2022)
  • John MacArthur "Good News" (2022)
  • Stephen J. Nichols "Why We Trust The Bible" (2023)
  • R.C. Sproul "Five Things Every Christian Needs to Grow" (2023)
