Lenten Season

Ash Wednesday


          The Season of Lent begins on Wednesday evening, March 1st, with a soup supper and service.  Ash Wednesday is a time to set the course for the weeks ahead that will lead to the celebration of Easter.  Join us for the simple meal at 6:30 p.m., and the service of music, scripture, communion and more that will follow.  For those who wish, ashes will be available to be placed on the forehead as a sign of beginning the journey.


Lenten Programs


          On two Sunday evenings, March 5th and March 19th, we will gather for soup, salad and a movie.  On March 5th we will be watching and discussing, "Intruder in the Dust."  The movie for March 19th is still in the process of being chosen.  Both evenings will begin at 5:00 p.m.


Welcome to Gateway Christian Church

Gateway Christian Church is a part of the movement called the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  On a national level we proclaim that we are "A Movement for Wholeness in a Fragmented World."  In West Los Angeles, where our church family gathers for celebration, study and growing with one another, we strive to live out being a faithful part of that movement for wholeness.

Our tradition is founded upon the belief that we are all God's children.  We live in that tradition as we openly welcome everyone.  We celebrate communion weekly, and all are welcome to Jesus' table.  Indeed, it is Christ who extends the invitation to the table, who meets us in that time, who offers his gifts of bread and cup to everyone.  Join us in celebrating shared life in God, and join us at the table that is set for us.
