About the Widows

Our desire is to honor, protect, provide for, and minister to widows at our church. Gateway Widows Ministry offers a safe and supportive environment where women who have lost their husbands can find comfort, encouragement, and hope. If you have recently lost your spouse and need pastoral assistance, please fill out a care request form or text, "Care" to 71010. 

If you are a widow or have a loved one who is, there are many ways to find support and build community right here at Gateway. Throughout the year we host luncheons where widows can learn from guest speakers and enjoy fellowship with each other.
