The Youth are in the height of their Service Projects this afternoon.  May they discover the blessings of serving others, while bonding with each other and growing their awareness of the world around them.  Prayers for the leaders and chaperones who are making this event possible.  May they have energy, patience and a warm heart as they guide the Youth.  What a glorious opportunity for all that are participating, both young and the young at heart!

PARTY FOR NEW MEMBERS AND FRIENDS OF WASATCH

Are you new to the Wasatch family in the last year or so?  If you answered yes, then please plan to come to a backyard BBQ THIS SUNDAY at 5:00 pm at the home of Doug and Charlotte Howe.  Participants don’t need to be official members; because we would like to celebrate all the new people at Wasatch and get to know you better!  We will have food and drinks and kids are welcome.  Please RSVP to Doug at howe.family@comcast.net so we know how much food to prepare.

SOUP KITCHEN VOLUNTEERS

Next week is our regularly scheduled Soup Kitchen week, but a youth group from Boise will be in town for a mission trip and will be covering both the sandwich making and soup kitchen serving duties.  So enjoy a month off and give thanks for visiting youth helpers!

GLASS TEA SETS

We have a number of small glass tea sets in storage here at Wasatch.  Congregational Life has voted to offer them to the congregation and the remaining sets will be donated.  A table will be setup in Fellowship Hall with the sets displayed.  Please take what you would like and if you desire to make a donation, please label it in an envelope and place it in the red lock box on the main level in the workroom.

SOUP KITCHEN VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR

We are looking for a new Soup Kitchen Scheduler(s), to take the lead in coordinating volunteers each month to make sandwiches and serve at the soup kitchen.  The soup kitchen is a wonderful ministry and a great way to involve those within and outside the congregation.  The volunteer schedule is set for 2019.  This could be a great role for two people to share.  Anyone interested or with questions is invited to contact Alysia Harris at delraydog@comcast.net.
