Thank you for your interest in supporting the ministries of Gateway. Through online giving, not only can you skip bringing a checkbook to church, you'll help us maintain ministries for your family during all seasons of the year. It's safe, secure, simple and free! We truly believe that giving is an act of worship and is one way to show our gratitude and obedience to our God who provides us with everything.
Automate the Important - set up recurring donations:
- Use your financial institution's Bill Pay feature (we love this option, because all of your gift goes to support ministry - we incur no bank processing fees), or
- Set up and use our "mygateway" account feature.
Using these online methods gives you more flexibility to choose the date your donation is processed.
One more way to help - Gateway is an Amazon affiliate. That means that if you purchase anything at all through Amazon using this link, Amazon donates a portion to Gateway at no additional cost to you!

Q: May I use a Bank card for online giving?
A: When you give online using InFellowship Giving, you may use an eCheck or a Bank Card (Visa or Mastercard).

Gateway pays higher processing fees with the Bank Card option - 97.49% gets used for ministry while 2.51% is spent on fees. Also please note that we only recommend donating by credit card to those individuals who are prepared to pay off their credit card balance in full at the end of each month. We encourage you to manage your finances in a way that does not incur debt. For help getting out of debt, please read more about Financial Peace University.
