Don’t forget this Sunday is a Second Sunday Brunch in lieu of Coffee Hour and in honor of Father’s Day!  Bring a dish to share and join us after worship for food and fellowship.

Sunday is also Blanket Sunday!  In 2016 Church World Services distributed 7820 blankets around the world! Wasatch has been supporting this ministry of Church World Service for 26 years by donating money to buy blankets.  We forward the money we receive to CWS and they purchase the blankets for just $10.00 each. They are then distributed to families worldwide who have lost their homes to tornadoes, floods, earthquakes and other disasters.  In the U.S., CWS responded quickly in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.  Also emergency supplies to North Carolina, Virginia and other hard-hit areas on the East Coast as well as blankets to homeless shelters and street programs around the country.
