FAMILY PROMISE WEEK IS NEXT WEEK!

One of the best things that Wasatch does for the community begins this Sunday.  Wasatch will support these families as they work to break out of the homelessness cycle and get back on their feet.  We will have guests with us this Sunday (9/16) until next Sunday (9/23).  You can make a meal, act as a host or even spend the night.  No experience is necessary!  There are some slots that still need filled, so sign up online at www.wpcslc.org or after worship in Fellowship Hall if you’re able.

ADULT EDUCATION BEGINS THIS SUNDAY (9/16)

There will be two classes offered at 10:10 a.m. on Sundays.

1. Paul Hewitt will lead a 10 class series called “Steward, Living as Disciples in Everyday Life” in room 355.  If you are interested, please email the church office or come in and sign up so we can make sure you receive a book.  All are welcome!

2. A Lectionary class will be lead by Terresa Newport in room 356.

There is another class being offered this Monday (9/17)

The class is “New Ways to Read the New Testament” conducted by Jan Bartlett at 7 p.m. in room 355.

CHILDREN’S & YOUTH MINISTRIES BEGIN SUNDAY SCHOOL THIS SUNDAY (916)

Children will begin with a special Chapel Time gathering in the Sanctuary, followed by a service project.  They’ll help set up the rooms for the Family Promise guests and make sack lunches for guests to enjoy during their week.

The best way to kick off Youth Sunday School after a Lock-In is with a service project!  They will set up the rooms for the Family Promise guests.

A reminder for those that haven’t finished the book yet, we will gather next Saturday, (9/22) at 7:00 p.m. for “in depth” discussion of The Immortalist by Chloe Benjamin.

MORTGAGE UPDATE

Wasatch underwent a major remodel and expansion in 2004, resulting in the wonderful facility that we have today.  To do so, the church took out a $3.3m mortgage in 2004 and thanks to an aggressive payment plan and generous donations, the amount needed to retire the mortgage is approximately $32,000.  The Budget & Finance Committee is hoping to wrap up 2018 by celebrating the end of the mortgage.  If you are able to contribute to this special effort in any way, donations are welcome.  Any questions, please contact Michael Holloway at michaelh@komatsueq.com.

BUILDING GURU NEEDED

The bad news - we urgently need to replace our wonderful Bill White as Buildings & Grounds Chair.  Bill has moved from his nearby residence, and can no longer attend to the duties of Chair.  The good news – the building is in great condition and we have a talented custodial staff and committee in place.  Please contact Rev. Dalgarno if you have any interest.
