Prepare the Way


  • The Gateway Church 1800 Grand Avenue Des Moines, IA, 50309 United States (map)

The King is coming! Jesus Christ has come and will come again. This is the hope of the Church and the eager expectation and desire of His people.  Advent is the joyful celebration of Jesus’ first arrival in humility and the anxious awaiting of His second in glory. It is season for remembering and rejoicing, watching and waiting. This season the teaching will follow the Lectionary Scriptures.

Get Your House in Order - When someone is terminally ill, they are typically told to get their affairs in order. If we believe the kingdom of God is at hand, how should that impact the way we spend our time, talents, and treasure?
Matthew 24v36-44

Prepare The Way - The kingdom of God dramatically changes the path of our lives. Rather than a struggle for money, sex and power life is now about generosity, service and love.
