Granite City


August Gate Church is multiplying! In 2018, August Gate Church will be planting a new worship gathering in Granite City, Illinois. What does that mean? That means that we believe God has specifically called our church to send out members to this community in order to start a new weekly gathering of our church. This group will gather together on Sundays to worship. This group will meet throughout the week in smaller groups called “Gospel Communities” to grow as disciples of Jesus. And this group will go on mission to love, serve and tell Granite City about the redeeming love of God found through Jesus Christ.

Gather: Worship Gatherings

We are starting regular Sunday services on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018. Leading up to Easter, we are hosting  our final Preview Services on March 25 at 5pmand we would love for you to gather with us. Preview services provide opportunities for you to come and experience what August Gate Granite City will be like before we officially launch.  Want to know what to expect? Check out what to expect here.

Preview Services are a time where we get to gather together to worship Jesus, pray for Granite City, and look towards what God is going to do. Our next two Preview Services will be from 5-6:30pm and childcare will be provided. The dates are:

Grow: Gospel Communities

Gospel Communities are smaller groups of people from August Gate Church who gather together during the week to grow in the gospel and grow in community. The goal of our Gospel Communities is to know, love, and follow Jesus together.  We want to create a culture of pursuit in every Gospel Community where we are pursuing God and pursuing one another for the sake of becoming more and more like Jesus.

We currently have three Gospel Communities in Granite City meeting and we would love for you to join one and journey with us as we pursue Jesus together.

Go: Pray, Give, Go

Starting a church is difficult. It takes people, time, resources, and above all prayer.  God is calling many people in many ways to be a part of August Gate Church: Granite City.  We believe these ways fall into three main categories: praying, giving, and going.  How is God calling you to go?

You can pray with us by using our Granite City Prayer Guide. You can give specifically to our Granite City Gathering either online or by sending a donation to our church office. You can go in a variety of ways ranging from greeting people at our Preview Services once a month, serving on a ministry team, helping set-up and tear-down, joining the team, to even moving to Granite City to be a part of God's mission there day after day.
