IT’S RETREAT WEEKEND!

Prayers for all those from our congregation who are going up to Camp Tuttle this weekend for the All-Church Labor Day Retreat.  May they enjoy the mountains and the fellowship, as well as safe travels.  For those not attending the Retreat, this will be the last week of one-combined service at 10:00 a.m.  May we think of one another as we worship in the Sanctuary or at Camp Tuttle.

UNDIE SUNDAY

Many thanks to all who donated socks and underwear for the children in foster care.  Your donations will be distributed by the staff at Utah Foster Care Foundation.  The people of Wasatch showed their generosity once again, and your donations are greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

CROSSROAD’S COLLECTION

Donations are accepted throughout the month, but with a special focus on Communion Sunday.  Looking for protein items like tuna and peanut butter, and they’re always in need of baby items like formula, diapers and baby food.  Travel size shampoo, conditioner, soap and lotion are appreciated too.  Donations can be left in the shopping carts.

RALLY DAY

Next Sunday, September 9th, is Rally Day, when we return to two worship services (9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.) and kick off the program year.  Join us in Fellowship Hall after each worship service for food, fellowship and the chance to learn more about all the wonderful things that happen in the life of the church, and how you can help us do more!

BUILDING GURU NEEDED

The bad news - we urgently need to replace our wonderful Bill White as Buildings & Grounds Chair.  Bill has moved from his nearby residence, and can no longer attend to the duties of Chair.  The good news – the building is in great condition and we have a talented custodial staff and committee in place.  Please contact Rev. Dalgarno if you have any interest.

FAMILY PROMISE

Our next hosting week is September 16th - 23rd.  Wasatch supports these families as they work to break out of the homelessness cycle and get back on their feet.  You can make a meal, act as a host, or even spend the night.  No experience necessary!  Sign up online at www.wpcslc.org or after worship in Fellowship Hall.

ADULT EDUCATION

Paul Hewitt will lead a 10 class series called “Steward, Living as Disciples in Everyday Life” beginning September 16th.  If you are interested, please email the church office or come in and sign up.  All are welcome!

PRESCHOOL OPENINGS

We’re excited for the first day of Preschool on September 4th and 5th!  If you know of anyone looking to enroll their four year old child for the current school year, please spread the word that we have a few available openings in our Pre-Kindergarten Program.  Contact the Preschool Director, Christy at christylawlor@wpcslc.org for information.

CUB SCOUT EVENT

WPC’S Cub Scout Pack 3038 is currently looking for any interested families with children ages K-5th who would like to have a fun ADVENTURE while learning life skills, service to others, citizenship and camping skills.  Sign up/Renewal night will be Tuesday, September 11th from 7-8:30 p.m. in the gym.
