In-Person FAQ

In-Person FAQ

Are all Gateway campuses open for weekend services?
Yes, all of our campuses are open for in-person services!

Is everyone required to wear a mask during services?
In keeping with Governor Abbott’s state guidelines, masks are not required for those attending our weekend services.

What health and safety guidelines are in place for worship services?
Extensive cleaning and disinfecting procedures take place campus-wide before, during, and after every service, and hand sanitizer stations are available. We also encourage you to worship with us at home if you have a fever of 100 degrees or above, a cough or sore throat, shortness of breath, or contact with anyone confirmed to have COVID-19 (in the past 14 days).

How many attendees are allowed in the auditorium?
In line with Governor Abbott’s state guidelines, we have returned to full capacity for weekend services. We will continue to monitor state guidelines to ensure the health and well-being of our congregation, staff, volunteers, and communities.

What if I’m not comfortable coming to a service yet?
That is okay! We know everyone has a different level of comfort, so please do what you feel is best for you and your family—whether that’s watching at home or joining us in person. If you are looking for some fellowship while watching church but aren’t comfortable coming to a service just yet, we encourage you to join us online or find a Gateway Gathering near you.

Is children’s ministry available?
Yes! Children’s ministry (birth through sixth grade) is available at all campuses during weekend services, and registration is not required.

Are there any special health and safety guidelines for Gateway Kids classrooms?
We are taking care to clean our classrooms, but we are not requiring masks or physical distancing. If your child stays home because they aren't feeling well, be sure to explore our Kids page for fun and engaging videos.

Can I still receive prayer at the service?
Yes, we want to pray for you! At the end of service, we have a time of corporate prayer, and our prayer team is available to pray with you at the altar. You can also text your prayer request to 71010, and we can connect with you digitally for personal prayer.

Can I still give my tithe or offering at the campus?
Yes, and you can also give online at or through the Gateway Church App.

What kind of safety precautions are you taking at the bookstore and café?
We offer touch-free payment options (e.g. Apple Wallet, Google Pay) at both the bookstore and café. In addition, team members at the café wear masks and gloves while serving and frequently clean and disinfect countertops and dining areas.

Are Gateway ministry trips and other local or regional outreach initiatives still happening?
Yes, Gateway ministry trips are returning on a case-by-case basis. View upcoming trips and contact trip leaders for more information. For opportunities to serve locally, text CONNECT to 71010, visit our Connect page, and stay up to date in your campus Facebook group.
