Our Joy:

Living a Life of Generosity

At Gateway, we believe life is a long-term mission trip, and every day is a short-term mission opportunity. 

God's word makes it clear that it's our job to share the love of Christ with people we see every day, 

whether we're in our local community, or halfway across the world. 

And this mission not only impacts those we serve, but it is a pathway to spiritual transformation in our own lives. 

Serving Locally at gateway

As a response to the free gift of grace in Jesus Christ, we respond with gratitude by mobilizing and serving one another and those in need. By serving one another we are serving God. There are many ministries that could use your gifts and talents. If you are interested in getting plugged into one of our ministries contact Pastor Marcel at marcel@gatewaycrc.org to get more information. 

 

Here are some ways to serve locally:

serve at the Extreme Weather Shelter

The Extreme Weather Shelter was established at Gateway in 2018 as a ministry to help those less fortunate in our community. In partnership with BC Housing, Gateway Community Church provides 30 beds, hot meals, delicious coffee and laundry for our guests. 


When the weather dips below zero degree during the night hours, there is any type of weather warning or there is snow on the ground, the shelter will be open from 8:00 pm to 8:00 am.  The Shelter runs from November 1 - March 31. 


Hours to volunteer are 7:30 pm - 12:00 am and from 12:00 - 8:00 am.  There will always be a staff member on duty along with one or two volunteers. There are a variety of duties from checking in our guests, socializing, doing laundry and more. 


All volunteer must meet our Safe Church Requirements as well as participate in mandatory training by the Shelter Staff.
