Join us on May 21 for Celebration Sunday! We'll gather for one combined worship service at 10am and celebrate the end of the program year, teachers, new officers, youth, children, music, and much more!

The next week, May 28, we will begin the new Summer Worship schedule, with one combined worship service at 10am between Memorial Day and Labor Day. We are trying this out in response to overwhelming feedback in the recent worship survey. We invite any and all to be a part of helping us plan this exciting new development. The first Summer Worship planning meeting will be May 2nd at 7pm.

Plans are plans are underway for a new picture Directory at some point in 2017!  In preparation for this, Brad Leinberger has offered to take photos of families after both worship services on April 30th and May 7th. If you're interested, come by Fellowship Hall.  Alternatively, if you have digital photos already available, feel free to (1) title the file with your name, and (2) email it to reception@wpcslc.org.

WPC is excited to offer a series of classes focused on issues related to immigrants, refugees, and policies relating to those groups.  Guest speakers from the ACLU, IRC, Holy Cross Ministries, and Communidades Unidas (among others) will join us on Sunday mornings this spring to educate us on these matters which are more relevant than ever. Meet promptly in the Library at 10:10 beginning this Sunday April 23.

Service at Wasatch

Help Wasatch support Crossroads Urban Center!  Look out for the new shopping cart in Fellowship Hall and drop donations anywhere nearby.  Crossroads is particularly in need of items with protein, i.e. peanut butter, canned chili, mac & cheese, etc.
