Be a Part of GatewayKids!

We are gearing up for the 2017/2018 school year and are looking to double our volunteer team at the 11:30 service! The need is great for committed volunteers who will say yes to investing in our kids, showing up each week to lead a small group, pray over babies, teach a lesson or engage in free play with a toddler. YOU can be the difference in a kid's life this school year! There are openings in all age groups at the 11:30 service and to be honest - we simply can't do it without you! This is a HUGE immediate need beginning in August, running through May. What could God do in and through you this school year if you step into something new? 

Please contact Pastor Jen today to talk about where you can serve and Say Yes to the next generation!

Be a Part of GatewayKids Summer Team

GatewayKids has an amazing team of consistent leaders and teachers, many of whom serve every single week or every other week! As summer approaches, we want to give them the opportunity to take a break and work around summer vacation schedules. In order to do that, we are putting together a Summer Team of adults who will step in to serve in the Elementary or Preschool classes one or more times during the months of June and July. There is no long term commitment involved, just the opportunity to serve during the summer, in the 10 or 11:30 services when you are available.

There will be an orientation on Sunday, June 4th during the 11:30am service where you will get all the information you need, be able to choose the age group you would like to work with and submit the dates that you are available to serve in June and July. Please email me (jen@gatewayfranklin.com) if you are interested in attending this orientation and being a part of our Summer Team!
