Community Groups meet about every other week.  It’s about caring relationships, biblical truth and spiritual accountability.  Small groups provide a relational context that enables truth to be applied to our lives in a meaningful and productive manner.  Please contact the church office for more detailed information about the meetings coming up.


Clint & Bambi Garrison

Clint and Bambi were married in 1998 and moved here from Virginia in 1999 to work in the public school system. Since moving here, they have been blessed with three additions to the family: Connor (2003), Jenna (2006) and Emery (2015). Bambi works part time as a speech pathologist and full time as a homeschool mom. Clint works in IT at Continental in Morganton.

We meet on Sundays (every other week) at 4:30. We have a lot of kids and we typically share a meal together. We rotate meeting in each of the homes of the group members.

We are currently studying a book on marriage by Francis Chan called "You and Me Forever".

David & Karen Keyes

David and Karen have lived in Hickory for over 25 years and have been attending Gateway Bible for about 8 years. David does counseling at a couple of local centers while Karen is a potter and photographer. We have two grown children who we see less than we would like.

Our group is currently finishing an inductive study of Judges. We generally decide as a group what we will do next. We meet in eastern Burke County. All are welcome and may join up anytime.
