What is the difference between Foundations of Freedom Classes and Topical Classes?
There are five Foundations of Freedom Classes: A Kingdom Parable, Levels of Change, Kingdom of God, Hearing God and Life in the Kingdom. They set the stage for your Journey to Freedom and provide part of a larger picture which will deepen our experience of freedom. Our Topical Freedom Ministry Classes take the big-picture perspective established in the Foundations classes and apply it to specific areas of struggle or need. We currently have 20–30 different topics that we cover. Most of them are stand-alone classes with only a few covering more than one night. The topical classes are designed to address the struggles and strongholds which often restrain us.
Is there children's ministry?
We currently offer the Foundations of Freedom Classes on Sunday mornings at Gateway Southlake. Children's ministry is available during this time utilizing the normal weekend service process for check-in.
Topical Freedom Classes are currently held on Wednesday nights at our Southlake campus. Children's ministry is available on Wednesday nights during Equip semesters only. No childcare is available during weeks when Gateway Equip is not in session.
When you register for a Topical class online during Equip, please register your children also.
Is there a specific order these classes should be taken in?
No, these classes can be taken in any order and you can take the Foundational and Topical classes at the same time. You do not need to finish the Foundational classes before starting the Topical classes.
How long do the classes last?
I would plan on being there for about 2 hours. All of our classes start at 7:00 pm.
Do we have to pre-register for classes?
We would prefer for you to pre-register for two reasons. One, we like to have an idea of how many notes to make for that evening's class. And two, we like to have your information in case we need to cancel the class for any reason. This would give us the ability to contact you so you don’t make an unnecessary trip to the church. You can pre-register at equip.gatewaypeople.com.
Do we need to bring anything to class?
You will receive a Journey to Freedom notebook at the Foundational classes. You can bring your Bible and something to write with.
Is there prayer/ministry time after class?
There is prayer time after class on Wednesday (Topical Class) evenings and it immediately follows the teaching.
Do you still offer individual sessions?
Yes, we offer individual sessions as part of the process. We ask that you first complete the five foundational classes and then attend KAIROS. After doing this, you may contact our office and obtain a freedom questionnaire. This will need to be filled out before we can schedule an individual session for you. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org for our questionnaire.
