We know that going to a new place can be a little scary!
We want you to feel as welcome and comfortable as possible while visiting Gateway, so we've assembled a list of frequently asked questions to give you an idea of what you can expect when paying us a visit.

Gateway Baptist Church is located in the heart of the New River Valley just outside of Blacksburg, VA. We're convenient to Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Roanoke, and the surrounding areas. Find us at 2196 Harding Road in Blacksburg, VA. For details see our Visitor's Page.
What time are your services?
We have different service times on Sundays and Wednesdays. For a list of service times visit our Visitor's Page.
What are your services like?
Our services are intended to glorify God and edify the congregation. Join the congregation in singing some favorite hymns of the faith, enjoy powerful and moving specials from the Gateway choir, groups, and soloists, and hear Spirit-filled sermons from Pastor Souther. Visit our Vimeo channel for examples of our preaching services.
Do you have programs for children?
Absolutely! We have classes and programs for children of all ages. Nursery care is provided for every service. Elementary-aged children enjoy children's church, Sunday Schools, Patch the Pirate club, and other programs tailored for their age groups. Our exciting teen group offers frequent activity opportunities, as well as conferences and/or camps every year. Visit our children's ministry page for specific classes and age groups.
How should I dress?
Our church staff and many of our church family dress up for our services, but feel free to wear what’s comfortable for you. Our main goal is that you feel welcome and comfortable while visiting Gateway.
How will I know where to go when I arrive?
Friendly greeters, dressed in blue coats, will be waiting at the front entrance when you arrive. They will be able to help you find where you should go, where to take your kids, and be able to help you find the answer to any question you might have.
