Care & Comfort for Widows

Time alone does not heal the grief experienced with the loss of a mate. This is for all women who understand & want to support each other. Beginning September 20th, this group will meet on Friday’s from 10:00 am to 11:30 am.

Joy Box Ministry

Those who are ill or hospitalized are given a gift box with items to help encourage them through recovery.

Quilting Ministry

Our “Peace by Piece” quilters are quite a prolific group. They have made and given away well over 500 quilts and lap throws to dialysis centers, New Life Pregnancy Center, women’s shelters, and our own members who were ill or had surgery.
If you are interested, you don’t have to know how to quilt, just have a willing heart and helpful hands.  The group meets in the church Fellowship Hall on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday and Wednesday mornings each month.   For information, call Carolyn Jenkins,    480-892-4711.
These are just some of the areas of activity that are offered to women at Gateway Fellowship SBC. Please call our ministry director if you have any questions. 480-892-4711
