Gateway Church began in 2007, holding services at Oak View Elementary. In 2013, they moved into their first building at 1288 Lewisburg Pike. Now, Gateway is gearing up to unveil another new building and a new sanctuary.
“God knew where we were going long before we knew where we were going,” says Dr. Charlie Weir, Lead Pastor in a video tour of the new building (which you can watch below).
The new space will bring church members, new and old, together for fellowship, learning and worship. In addition to a new sanctuary, the new building features a special place for middle school and high school students to gather and worship and the former sanctuary will be transformed into a specifically designed worship space for children.
Their last service in their current space is today, September 15th. For the following two Sundays, they will gather at West Harpeth Primitive Baptist Church at 6pm on September 22 and 29 for family services.
Gateway Church will begin using a new sanctuary October 6th but the entire place won’t be up and running until January.
“I can already hear it – voices raised in worship. I can already see it. I can see hands raised in surrender. I can see people at an altar longing for the holes in their heart to be filled with the grace of God. I can see the tear stains already,” says Pastor Weir.
Watch the video below for a tour of the new space.
Gateway Church focuses on these six words: Fresh Starts. Great Friends. Real Purpose. More information can be found on their website www.gatewayfranklin.com
