At Gateway Baptist Church, we're always excited to welcome new visitors. We hope you'll join us for a service, and we want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Here's what you can expect when you come to either our 11:00 a.m or 06:00 p.m. service.
Our church is located at 980 US Highway 70 W, Alamogordo, NM, and parking is located behind Building 2, simply drive to the right of the first building as you enter. If you have mobility restrictions or young children to carry, feel free to use one of the spots closest to the door. We like to keep them free for visitors and people who need assistance.
Please don't worry about what you'll wear to church, for we truly believe people should come to God as they are. You don't need to dress up to get his approval--that comes through Jesus' sacrifice. Once you walk in the doors, you'll see that the congregation has all types of people in all kinds of dress. While a few people in the church wear ties, others like to remind them that Jesus never wore a tie. Shorts are as welcome as suits, and you'll see both.
When you walk in, find one of our greeters and introduce yourself. They're usually stationed at the doors or in the the entry way, and they'll show you where everything is. They'll help you find the nursery and Sunday school rooms if you have kids. We offer Children's Church and nursery during service following worship, please let us know of your needs. Our greeters can also point you to the restrooms, sanctuary and fellowship area. If you have any questions about the service itself, the greeters are able to provide helpful answers.
Every other month we host a potluck in our gathering hall, please feel free to come and fellowship with us and if you would like bring a dish or just enjoy what we have cooked up. You'll have a chance to meet our pastor and many other people in the church. We'd also love to get to know you so you're a familiar face the next time you come.
