Our belief is that everyone is a piece in the picture of life God wants to create and that picture will not be complete if there is a missing piece. As a Church we offer you opportunities to be a part of what God is doing. It is when we as people choose to serve, whether in our church, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those who see them giving their time to help someone else. As followers of Jesus, we are never more like him than when we are serving others in love. Below are the opportunities you have to make a difference, to be a piece of God's picture.
In The Church
It takes dozens of volunteers to make Sunday happen. Are you willing to help? Our needs are as diverse as the people who attend our services. Find out how you can get involved and serve others in our church community.

MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchooler)
Meets every 2nd and 4th Thursday at the church at 6:15pm
(There is a $75 annual fee)
MOPS stands for "Mothers of Preschoolers" - but don't let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mother of a child from conception through kindergarten with local groups of moms just like you. MOPS is dedicated to the message that "mothering matters." Better moms raise better children and make the world a better place.
MOPS is an international organization providing an opportunity for moms to meet other moms and make the journey of motherhood together. We share our experiences, learn from one another, and offer support for one another. MOPS meetings are a wonderful place to learn, build long-lasting friendships, and have fun.
A typical MOPS meeting includes a time for sharing food and conversation followed by a presentation of information relevant to mothers raising preschoolers. The group covers subjects such as childrearing, marriage, relationships, cooking, homemaking and creative crafts.
MOPS welcomes women from throughout the community. You do not need to be a member of Gate City to join our MOPS group. In fact our MOPS group is interdenominational and we seek to welcome and serve all who wish to be involved.

Participate with your Girl
Girl Scouting has a lasting impact on girls. Involving your daughter in Girl Scouts provides her with values, leadership development, diversity awareness, life skills, and community connections that last a lifetime. You don't have to attend Gate City to be a part of our troop. Our regular meeting is on Wednesdays at 4pm at the Church.
Student Camps and Retreats
When you disconnect from Wi-Fi, amazing things can happen!
As a church we believe the opportunity to participate in camps and retreats is priceless. Camps provide a time for students to leave behind the worries of day-to-day, the cords that attach them to a plug-in, the built in comforts of home, and helps them learn to be dependent upon God, and the community of people around them. Camps are priceless. (if you previously went to a camp and would like to see the pictures, they are password protected, get in touch with a leader for the password)
Camp: eliminating the distractions of the day-to-day, providing a location perfect for growth, and making new friends.
