Regathering Announcement

We are pleased to announce plans to regather for worship at GraceWay Church on Sunday, June 7. In order to maintain social distancing, we will offer two venues (sanctuary and gym) and two services (9:00 and 10:45 am). We will livestream the 9 am worship service for those who remain at home, and also post a recording that can be viewed at a later time from the website. Please watch for more details in the coming weeks.

RightNow Media
Has a wide-array of video Bible studies and faith-based programming for the whole family. Recommendation: a five-session study by Larry Osborne called Thriving in Babylon. This study looks at Daniel’s life in a fast changing, godless society and how he not only survived, but thrived.

Missions Update

Expeditions Unlimited
This is the time of year we begin gearing up for the summer.  At this point, we are not sure what that will look like.  We are now seeing cancellations in June, but July and August remain full.  We know that will most likely change or at the very least how we go about doing camp will change.  God has richly blessed us with an incredible full-time staff and has put together an incredible summer team.  Please pray with us for direction and guidance as we seek how to move forward. … The fire clean-up continues to move along quickly and efficiently.  The demolition of the existing building is complete.  An outside company is scheduled to begin construction on a new building in the next couple of weeks.  Life jackets, climbing gear, and much more necessary equipment has been ordered and should reach us sometime in May as well.  – Steve Higgins, Director

Mission Impact
Food insecurity is a growing need in the Guatemalan communities which Mission Impact serves.  A $20 donation will buy beans, rice, cooking oil, sugar, fortified oatmeal, and pasta that will last an a average  family 3-4 days.  Please consider contributing $20 or more to meet these needs.  The quickest way to provide relief is to donate directly to Mission Impact online or mail checks payable to Mission Impact designated for “food baskets” to PO Box 45797, Madison, WI 53744.  Alternatively, donations to GraceWay designated for “Mission Impact, food baskets” will also be forwarded.   Mission Impact’s website provides a full description of their many ministries.
