Widows Ministry

The (uncompromisingly) righteous shall flourish like the palm tree (be long-lived, stately, upright, useful and fruitful) … planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.

Psalm 92:1213 (AMP)

Gateway Widows Ministry is for widows of all ages and is designed to provide spiritual and emotional support, practical resources, encouragement, and fellowship in a variety of ways. Our purpose is to help women flourish in the midst of difficult circumstances and loss.

We offer monthly group meetings, pastoral care, grief support, and resource referrals specifically for widows. We seek to understand the many changes that a woman is experiencing and offer her love, care, and spiritual and emotional support.

  • You will be seen.
  • You will be understood.
  • You will be valued by a community of those who care.

We want to hear from you! We are currently meeting in focus groups in order to discover what your needs are and how we can best enlarge and expand our ministry to meet those needs. If you're interesting in giving feedback, email widows@gatewaypeople.com.

Have you ever dreaded going to church because it's so difficult to attend alone? Perhaps you haven’t attended at all because of that reason. Do you sometimes feel like no one understands what you are going through?

You are important to Gateway Church. We want to connect you with other women who understand what you're feeling and who want to make connection with you. Come and meet some new friends! Sit with them in church! Learn how to flourish in the midst of difficulty. We want you to be here!
