November 23, 2018

On this day after Thanksgiving, may your belly and soul be filled with love and nourishment.  Many thanks to the wonderful community that makes up WPC!

CHRISTMAS POINSETTIAS

Order forms for Christmas Poinsettias to decorate the sanctuary this holiday are available in the church pews and the church office.  Orders will be accepted through Sunday, December 9th.  The cost is $15 per plant and following the Christmas Service, you are welcome to take the plant home or have the deacons delivery them to a church member.

FAMILY PROMISE

December 2nd - 9th, is our final hosting week for 2018.  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.

YOUTH WREATH FUNDRAISER

SUNDAY is your last opportunity to pre-order advent wreaths, greenery and basket centerpieces.  Support our youth summer trip by purchasing some greens for the holidays!  Place your order at the table in fellowship hall. Greenery will be ready for pick up Sunday, December 2nd!

ADVENT FESTIVAL

All ages are welcome to join us in kicking off the Advent Season at our annual Advent Festival on December 2nd, from 5-7 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.  We’ll share a soup supper and enjoy a variety of activities including a carol sing-a-long, Advent crafts, handbells, live nativity animals and the Youth Bake Sale.  Please sign up in Fellowship Hall during coffee hour or click here to bring soup and/or help clean up, it takes a village, or congregation, to pull off such a wonderful event!

LOOK FOR THE GIVING TREE

We will be participating in this event in conjunction with the Utah Foster Care Foundation, to buy gifts for children of all sizes and ages who are in foster care.  Please take an ornament with a child's name and requested gifts, buy the item(s), and place them under the tree.  All gifts will be picked up and distributed in time for Christmas to go to children who cannot be in their homes and are unfortunate enough to be in foster care for the holidays.  All gifts should be in by December 10th.  Gift cards for emergencies are always welcomed, and can be donated after the 10th.

DELIVERING CHRISTMAS CHEER

Each December, our Youth bake and deliver cookies to Wasatch Presbyterian members who cannot easily get out of the house and can use some Christmas cheer!  If you would like to nominate someone in the congregation who lives in SLC to receive this Youth blessing, please contact Dawn at dfleishman@wpcslc.org.

YOUTH BAKE SALE FUNDRAISER

Bring your sweet tooth to church Sunday, December 2nd and purchase baked goods from the Youth before and after both worship services.  All donations will go to fund our youth summer trip.  Parents and youth, please plan to contribute items to the sale.
