Stepping into a church for the first time can be intimidating for anyone. You don't necessarily know anyone, you are likely unfamiliar with the building, and you may not know what to expect. It is a time when we can feel vulnerable. Here at Gateway, we understand and want the experience to be a positive one for you. So, to start - let us answer a few frequently-asked questions:


We meet weekly at our campus in Oskaloosa, Iowa:

What can I expect?

How long is THE service?

In total, services are about 75 minutes in length. Services begin with the worship team leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of the service is complete, our pastor will share an encouraging and scripture-based message about Jesus.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at KidCity, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our KidCity program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the KidCity experience. KidCity is offered at every Gateway Nazarene service for kids ages infant through Grade 5.

Once your kids are checked in, they'll enter a fun experience designed specifically for them. From fun games, engaging music, and to messages about Jesus designed with kids in mind - we're sure they'll love it.

What's the culture like at Gateway Nazarene Church?

Come as you are - we are not perfect! We are a community seeking to learn how to live like Jesus. We have people of all ages, races, educational, and economic backgrounds in our community and we hope that you feel welcomed, too.
