November 2, 2018

Time to fall back an hour... a reminder that Daylight Savings time ends this Saturday/Sunday.  We’d love to see you an hour early, but maybe you’d prefer to get some extra sleep or take a morning hike.  All are wonderful options!

SUNDAY! Library Open House & Book Sale 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 a.m.

Join us downstairs in the library for coffee, cookies and books after both services Sunday.  Support our library while enjoying the fellowship and the great book selection, from Art to Zoology and everything in between–something for everyone and the prices can’t be beat!  Also, check out the Sparkhouse Book Fair in the Art Room, where you can purchase Bibles and other titles for gifts, and a portion of sales goes towards supporting Children's Ministry.

STEWARDSHIP OFFERING

We will receive pledges for the 2019 church year as a special part of Sunday morning's offering.  You may have already mailed or carried in your pledge for next year.  If so, thank you very much.  We also thank you and invite you to bring your pledge on Sunday and come forward to place it in the fish basket near the baptismal font during the regular morning offering time.

YOUTH WREATH SALE

During both Coffee Hours in November, the Youth will be taking pre-orders for their holiday wreath and greenery fundraiser.  This Sunday, they’ll be near the Library Book Sale.  Stop by and place your order!  This annual fundraiser supports their summer river/mission trip and camps.

CHURCH DIRECTORY UPDATE

The WPC directory will be reprinted in November.  Please send any new updates and photos to the reception@wpcslc.org email address.  If you have already sent in your updates we have added them.  If you are unsure if we have your updated information you can email or call us at (801) 487-7576.  Please note, photos are very small, close-ups work best.

COMMUNITY HAPPENINGS

We are excited to announce our new Community Happenings page on the Wasatch website, in response to the many requests we receive to advertise interesting and meaningful happenings outside the life of the church.  If you have something you’d like us to include on the page, please send the information to communications@wpcslc.org.  Please note that these announcements should be community focused.
