We offer a series of courses focused on the journey from discovering Christ, to growing in Christ, serving like Christ, and finally making disciples of Christ. These classes meet on Sunday mornings, on a rotating schedule.

Starting Point — Live for Christ

April 24th at 9:00 AM | Register here
We all come from diverse backgrounds, faith traditions and spiritual interests.  You might be new to this whole Jesus thing, new to St. Louis or new to Gateway and you are ready to start a new chapter in your walk with God.  That is the goal of this course, to help you on your journey.

Next Step — Grow in Christ

May 1st at 9:00 AM | Register here
We believe that being a follower of Christ is much more than "I believe in Christ, and now I can go to heaven."  Although that is a true statement, placing your faith in Christ is the beginning of a journey, not the end of one.  This class will help you see past the benefits of belief and steer you towards the responsibilities, as well as the blessings, that come with growing closer to Christ.

Next Step — Serve Like Christ

Upcoming Dates TBA
The purpose of this class is to discover how our service relates to God’s mission.  God has every single one of us with different gifts, talents and abilities and this class will also you to discover how God has designed us so we can serve him in a unique way.

Next Step — Make Disciples of Christ

Upcoming Dates TBA
This course is designed to answer that big, important question, "What’s Next?"  During this class we focus on Jesus’ final command and commission to “Go and make disciples.”

Life Groups

Nothing is better than community. Whether you are brand new to following Jesus or have been for years, we believe that the intentional relationships you find in a life group are the ideal place to connect and grow.  We have groups that meet all throughout the greater St. Louis area.
