Happy Fathers Day! Worship Service Capacity: We are currently meeting according to phase two of Alberta's COVID-19 guidelines.

Those unable to attend in-person can still join us on Facebook live at 10:00am.
Mental Wellness Seminar - June 23: We are excited to partner with Calgary-based Kingdom Life Ministries to facilitate a virtual mental wellness seminar on Wednesday June 23rd at 7:00pm via Zoom. Anyone can participate free of charge to grow in God's plan for mental health, stress, anxiety, and more. Email us to register or learn more.Pancake Sunday - July 25: July 25th is the return of a favourite church tradition at The Gate: Pancake Sunday! Come to church at 10:00am as usual, but expect to enjoy a delicious breakfast along with the service.Sabbatical - June 21-Aug. 16: We would like to bless Pastor Blair Stretch as he begins this time of intentional sabbath and rejuvenation in God's presence and Word. We pray that he and his family would find rest in Christ during this time and that the Lord would prepare him for the next season of ministry. Summer Student - We're excited to have Jubilee Sauer join us on staff for most of the summer thanks to a government grant! She's already been hard at work helping us get the Kidsgate area rejuvenated for the fall!
Donations: We now have a dedicated email address for tithes and offerings: email@example.com. The previous address still works, but we are making this one available specifically for online giving and encourage you to make use of it if you donate digitally. Thank you!
