We expect large crowds on Christmas Eve and our goal is for every attendee to have a great experience. The RSVP process helps to ensure that attendance is spread out between all four service times, and that seats are available for you at the service you attend.
Not really. Don’t think of this as a ‘ticket’ but instead a way to let us know how many people to expect. You still need to come early to make sure you have enough seats for your party. Unfortunately, not everyone uses this system so sometimes the auditorium fills up quickly. Thank you for doing your part to help us make Christmas Eve at Redemption even more special!
That's up to you. You can RSVP for them or send them an invite at http://christmasatgateway.com/invite. We'd like to prepare to serve them, so please do make sure somebody completes an RSVP for them.
No. We will not be giving out physical tickets. All seating is first-come, first-serve.
Yes. All four services will be identical.
Yes. Kids programs will run for infants - pre-school. Older kids will be encouraged to attend the service in the auditorium.
You can check in your 0-4 year old kids at our kids check-in kiosks, right across from the entrance to the auditorium.
We hope you’ll wear whatever makes you comfortable. You’ll find plenty of people dressed casually (t-shirts, shorts, jeans) and others dressed a little snazzier (slacks, ties, dresses, skirts). Just come as you are.
Each service will be just about 1 hour.
Yes. Each Christmas Eve we take a special offering. This year's offering will support three projects that will be helping people experience a place to belong. For more detailed info, click here.
