We are a new startup church with a long history in Illinois who recently renamed to Gateway Community Church. Why are we different from any other church you ask? We are the first church in the area with a theme. When you walk through our church doors, sports visuals are everywhere. Also, a very nice coffee/doughnut bar stands out when you walk in. Go a little further and you will see the sanctuary. You will quickly notice that this is not like any normal type of church sanctuary, inside you will see a concert type of stage.
The Worship service is especially designed to meet the needs of younger and older families with kids. The Worship band has a contemporary rock sound similar; to K-Love bands like: Chris Tomlin, Matthew West, Jesus Culture, Sidewalk Prophets, Casting Crowns, Newsboys - etc.
We offer Adult Life Groups, Teen Life Groups and something we call Gateway Kidz - Life Group. Opportunity's to serve all ages are available to everyone. We also offer Recreation Programs for kids ages 3 and up. We have a very casual, come as you are atmosphere.
