  • Extreme WEather Shelter

  • HEarts of Hope

    The path of infertility is not a path anyone plans to be on. The devastation of a pregnancy loss is not something anyone expects. As Christians, we believe that whatever road God has given us is for our good, even if it doesn’t feel like it in the moment. There are so many questions, so many disappointments when you are struggling with the pain of infertility and pregnancy loss, and sometimes, it can be very lonely.

    That’s one reason why Hearts of Hope was created. It was started so that women of faith can find the strength, encouragement, comfort and support from God’s word, and from each other. Please know that you are not alone.

  • Friendship

    Friendship Ministries is a program devoted to sharing God’s love with people who have intellectual disabilities and to enable them to become an active part of God’s family. Each meeting is spent learning about God through singing, group learning, and crafts. It also includes a time for fellowship and refreshments.

    Friendship meets weekly in Gateway CRC's Chapel.
