Gateway’s North Main campus has been under construction since March.
Before you know it, the basement will be filled with vibrant colors and a welcoming atmosphere. There will be casual seating areas for college students to study or Life Groups to gather. The kitchen will be stocked and ready to host meals for Celebrate Recovery, college dinners, and community outreaches. The main space will be primed to welcome elementary-aged kids to Kidway and teens to the youth group.
Upstairs in the sanctuary, the pews have been temporarily moved aside to greet a fresh coat of paint, new carpet, and a rebuilt stage. The sound system and lights are on their way! Not to mention the brand new cafe that will be added to the south side of the worship center, which will serve Fort Findlay’s Gateway Blend coffee between services, beginning on the August 27 launch date.
Nursery and preschool rooms are getting a face-lift with fresh paint, carpet, and ceiling tiles. They’ll be stocked with all the Kidway essentials--don’t forget the Cheerios! Although a lot has already happened, there is much more to come. And you can help!
