While we'd love for you to join our Sunday services, you do not need to attend or be a member of Gateway Community Church.

You or your child will never be asked to participate in anything that feels uncomfortable. GVCC is a ministry of Gateway Community Church; as such, Christian beliefs are an integral part of our school curriculum.
