Church Directory Pictures

Pictures are being taken for a new GraceWay Church directory on Sunday, May 29 and Sunday, June 5 from 10:15 -11:15 a.m. in the foyer space next to Room 101 (where the coat hangers are located). We encourage you to have a current picture taken since families grow and change from year-to-year. You can also submit a current picture by June 8 to office@gracewaysaukprairie.org. We also ask each family unit to fill out a Database/Directory Update and Authorization form even if you don’t get your picture taken. You can complete the form online or fill out a paper copy when your picture is taken. If you have any questions, please contact Linda or Claudia at 608-643-6064 or email office@gracewaysaukprairie.org.

Vacation Bible School

Take a three-day journey with kid detectives as you dig into a few of Jesus’ parables to solve the mysteries of how to grow your faith, how to care for, serve and love others.

GraceWay Missions

Joy Pulsfus will travel to Colorado to be a volunteer at the Thrive Ministry retreat for missionary women on June 25 to July 3. There will be approximately 50 missionary women from around the world in attendance. These global workers need refreshment, replenishment, encouragement and prayer. We have an opportunity to support this global ministry, namely, by donating a new book to the bookstore. Thrive has an Amazon wish list of all kinds of books of interest to women living and working globally. You can order book/s online and have them shipped directly to Colorado – couldn’t be easier!! 
View and order books here.
