Good evening, Gateway!

This year, we are doing something different for Mother’s Day! In addition to honoring our own Gateway mothers, we also want give all our members — men AND women — the opportunity to “be a mom” to those in need outside of our church.

On Sunday, May 13, we will be collecting diapers to benefit the St. Louis Diaper Bank. These are distributed to local moms in need. We have a goal of collecting at least 500 diapers as a congregation. You can bring any size diapers, but the greatest need is sizes 4 and 5, and also pull-ups and training pants.

Please bring new, unopened packages of diapers for our collection. We will take these to the diaper bank for you following our Mother’s Day service.
