Q1. Where are you located?
A. The church is located in Visalia, California at the corner of Tulare Avenue and Sowell Street. The Address is 1100 S Sowell St, Visalia, CA 93277.
Q2. What time is service?
A. We have three services for in-person worship. On Sunday, we have 8:30am with the choir and orchestra & 10:30am with the worship band. We also have a Thursday night option at 6:45pm for those who would like a week night option. Our service lasts about 45 minutes. We know in this season many are being cautious, so we made it easy for you to choose your experience and let us know if you are coming in-person or online!
Q3. What should I wear?
A. If you would like to dress up you certainly can, however, it isn't necessary. At Gateway, we believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up ready to worship God. So, come comfortable and casual or come dressed up; the choice is yours. Simply put, you are welcome to come just as you are.
Q4. Do I have to be a Christian to attend?
A. No! We encourage people who are learning about their faith to attend Gateway. And if you have questions about what it means to be a Christian, we are more than happy to provide you with the resources you need to develop your faith.
Q5. Do you have different worship styles?
A. Yes! We have two worship styles here at GateWay. Our 8:30am service has more traditional style hymns with our Choir & Orchestra and the 10:30am service includes more contemporary music from our Worship Band. Our Thursday night service at 6:45pm is also with the worship band.
Q6. Is there something for my kids?
A. At Gateway, we love kids! We have children's ministry programs for all ages at each of our services. We also have a class called Abide for kids, 3 years to 6th grade, that have special needs. Masks are not required. It is up to the parents if they would like their children to wear a mask to class. Learn more about our children's ministry by clicking here
Q6. Is there something for my youth (jr high & high school) students?
A. Absolutely! Our junior high ministry meets Sunday mornings during our 10:30am service and our high school ministry meets sunday nights from 6-8pm. We do also encourage students to attend the regular service with their families on Thursday nights or Sunday mornings. Learn more about our youth ministry by clicking here
