Plan A Visit

Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit to Gateway Nazarene

Getting to know each other

Stepping into a church for the first time can be an intimidating prospect for anyone. You don't necessarily know anyone. You are likely unfamiliar with the building. It is a time when we can feel vulnerable. Here at Gateway Nazarene, we understand and want the experience to be a positive one for you. Welcome to Gateway!


Gateway Nazarene meets weekly at our campus in Oskaloosa Iowa:

Sunday Discipleship Groups - 9:00am

Sunday Worship - 10:30am

What can I expect?

How long is a Gateway nazarene service?

In total, a Gateway Nazarene service is about 60 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's the culture like at Gateway Nazarene Church?

Come as you are, grab a cup of coffee or check out a broader selection of items at the Gateway Cafe, and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

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.
