CHURCH NEWS

Please note that Wasatch is trying out Givelify, a new option for electronic loose offerings.  After a 6 month trial period, we will decide as a church whether to continue with the initiative.  For more information, see the website or the handout on Sunday morning. 

At our Maundy Thursday (April 13) worship service this year, the choir will sing Dubois's famous cantata, The Seven Last Words of Christ. We invite all singers to join the choir for this event, with rehearsals each Thursday evening in the choir room from 8:15-9:00. Contact Ken Udy with any questions.
 
Wasatch is looking for a new Head Custodian. For more information and to see the job description, please see the website or come by the office. 
    
Marjorie Thompson, Presbyterian minister and author of Soul Feast, will offer a seminar entitled Exploring the Non-Dominant Divine. Join us at 7:00pm on April 20 and 21 in the Fellowship Hall for this guided conversation.  Nearly two thousand years of Christian doctrine have taught “the Sovereignty of God” in ways that may be unhelpful to what we believe and how we relate to Divine Presence. Many Christians assume “God is in control” without thinking deeply about what this means. Terms like dominion, domination, and dominant have their origin in the same Latin root as Dominus (Lord). Yet the Incarnation challenges our human notions of lordship, domination, and dominance. Moreover, modern psychology and spirituality offer insight into how the Holy moves through our non-dominant or “inferior” personality functions. Is it possible that our own non-dominance is in deep resonance with God’s most profound way of being? What sources of spiritual wisdom and practice might help us see more clearly into the divine nature, challenging our prevailing paradigms of God’s way with--and within--us? Through sacred texts, modern and ancient writings, poetry, and conversation, we will explore together what it might mean to celebrate and participate in the Non-Dominant Divine.

We have a new Community Happenings bulletin board in the hallway to the kitchen on the main level.  The board is designed to help share events and news related to the larger community surrounding WPC.  If you'd like to post something , please swing by the church office to get the all clear.

Thank you again for helping us switch to the new office emails - communications@wpcslc.orgfacilities@wpcslc.org, and reception@wpcslc.org.  Please note the change from the prior receptionist@wpcslc.org.  For more information about these new emails, see the Office FAQ's handout here, in the foyer, & in the office.
