Best wishes to Pastor Scott as he embarks on his sabbatical!  You will be missed, but we send you our prayers and look forward to hearing about your journey upon your return.  Fortunately, Wasatch will be blessed to have two wonderful ladies preaching and filling in during his absence.  Warmest welcomes to Luana Uluave and Reverend Catherine Putnam-Netto!

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.

ROYAL FAMILY KIDS CAMP

We are going to have a camp!  This is your chance to make a difference in a child's life. 50 kids from the Utah foster care system will enjoy a week of guaranteed fun and caring, in the Wasatch Mountains this summer, from July 28 through August 2.  We are going to need more volunteers to staff this ministry.  The largest need is for counselors, or "Big Campers" and two social workers.  However, there are many other ways you can serve, with organizing, sorting, packing, crafts, reading at bedtime, activities, and just having fun with the kids.  Camp training will be held on June 8.  Please visit our website at www.sandygslc.royalfamilykids.org to apply, donate, explore, find answers, and to see what Royal Family Kids Camp is about.  You may also contact Shelley Horel at rochellehorel@gmail.com.  To all who have donated and supported Royal Family Kids, thank you!  You helped to make this camp possible.

SUMMER CHOIR

Each Sunday throughout the summer, anyone who wishes to sing in the choir for that Sunday's service is invited to come to the choir room for a short rehearsal at 9:30 a.m. to learn the anthem for the day.  The music is straightforward and fun!  Please consider joining the summer choir when you can.
