SALT is Senior Adults Living Triumphant and is our new Senior Adults Ministry. The Gate Church is a multi-generational church and we make every effort to build a bridge from one generation to the next. Just as salt is an essential nutrient in the human body so are senior adults to the body of Christ. Our senior adults contribute much to the life of our church and community, and S.A.L.T offers a variety of avenues of ministry and community. We also offer special times of bible study, fellowship, travel and continuing education.
There is no point in time when we stop growing in our relationship with the Lord. Our activities give “more mature” members the opportunity for Christian fellowship along with a fulfilling life as the Lord continues to use us as we serve.
Our desire is to meet the spiritual and social needs of our senior adults with the purpose of bringing each of us closer to God and sharing the Gospel through our lives and in service.
"He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth much fruit" (Psalm 1:3).
“Let us go forward with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfector of our faith.” - Hebrews 12: 1-2
S.A.L.T. exists to fulfill the following:
- To worship our God and Savior Jesus Christ
