Sunday night was a truly historic night for our church. Our covenant members gathered at Eight Seven Central to celebrate all God has been doing within Gateway these past nine years. The community of believers God has formed here is nothing short of remarkable. Together we have experienced and shared the gospel in simple, yet profound ways throughout our city and our world. Thank you for being a part of this incredible story!
We also gathered to hear God's vision for our future. At Gateway, it has always been our dream to not just be a church in Des Moines, but to be a significant part of what makes our city what it is. This vision is much bigger than a building. We want to create a space to cultivate dreams and guide people into a relationship with God while bringing the community together. A cultural center built for the artistic, social, economic and spiritual benefit of Des Moines and its residents.
We are currently in negotiations to purchase the warehouse at 106 11th Street. We believe this could become a truly beautiful and unique space in Des Moines. This space will not only be a perfect home for Gateway, but will also allow us to have an integral 7-day a week presence in the heart of our city. On Sunday our members voted unanimously to move ahead with the purchase of this building!
A new space is coming to Des Moines. A space to worship and pray; to innovate and dream; to create and perform; to heal, connect, learn and grow. Over these next few weeks would you consider sacrificially investing in this dream?
