LADIES BOOK CLUB TONIGHT

We’ll gather at Dawn’s home tonight at 7:00.  Hope to see you there!

SPECIAL COFFEE HOUR SUNDAY

The Service Committee cordially invites you to join us during coffee hour to learn about the ongoing missions at Wasatch.  Mission leaders or representatives are available at information tables to answer any questions you might have and provide insight to how this church responds to God’s call to serve one another.

YOUTH LUNCH OUTING: THIS SUNDAY!

Meet in fellowship hall at 12:30 p.m. and we will head out to a local restaurant in Sugarhouse.  Bring $10-15.  Parents, plan to pick up from church at 2:00 p.m.

SANDWICH MAKING & SOUP KITCHEN

Tuesday, September 24 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the gym.  Come help prepare sandwiches that will be served to the homeless.   All ages are welcome to participate.  This is a great way to teach our kids about service!  Wednesday, September 25 at 4:30 p.m. we need people (12 and older) to help serve dinner at St. Vincent’s.  Contact Allan if you have questions or can help.

CALLING ALL SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS!

Children’s Ministry is in need of a regular teacher for the 3rd & 4th grade class as well as substitute teachers for the occasional Sundays our regular teachers are absent.  If you are interested in helping the children of Wasatch grow in their faith, please contact Stasha at slewis@wpcslc.org.

WASATCH 101

Are you new to Wasatch and have questions about how things at Wasatch Presbyterian Church work?  Or, maybe you have some other questions about how you can get involved in the life of Wasatch.  We will meet from 10:10 – 11:00 a.m. on Sept. 22 and Oct. 6 in the Library.  The classes are led by the Pastor and Elder Doug Howe.  Contact Doug Howe for more information at doughowedds@gmail.com.

FAMILY FUN NIGHT

Our first family fun night of the year! Join us on October 4 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the loft.  We will make bread for World Communion Sunday!  As always, there will be pizza and games.

DIRECTORY UPDATES

The office will be updating the database for the fall printing of the Wasatch directory.  Please email reception@wpcslc.org with any changes to your address, phone number or an updated picture.  There will be a table set up in Fellowship Hall for the next two weeks to check the current directory and note any changes.

PRISON MINISTRY

Prison Ministry is in need of volunteers.  You will have tremendous impact through this ministry.  Your service will help lead change from within by providing opportunities for incarcerated students to heal and serve both themselves and others through Interdenominational Faith studies.  Class content is centered on books and film.  You’ll also experience laughter, friendship, and camaraderie.  Time commitment is periodic Saturday attendance from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.  Contact Gay Cookson at gaycookson@comcast.net or Paul Hewitt at pwhewitt@msn.com.

THANK YOU FOR THE UNDIES

On behalf of the Utah Foster Care Foundation we want to thank Wasatch Presbyterian Church for its generosity in the wonderful donations of underwear and socks for children whose lives are in transition in the foster care system.  The gifts are appreciated and essential in helping to jump start a new school year!

COFFEE HOUR SIGN UP

If you haven’t already, please sign up for Coffee Hour Refreshments.  This is an easy way to serve our Wasatch community!  Plan on 50-60 people at each coffee hour, bring light refreshments (meant to be a little snack after worship) to the Fellowship Hall kitchen 15 minutes before worship and Congregational Life will take care of the rest.  Thank you for signing up, we appreciate your help!

YOUTH PERMISSION FORMS

Each youth should have a new permission form filled out that remains on file for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please pick one up from the bulletin board in Fellowship Hall and return to Dawn.

MEDITATION CLASS

Join us each Sunday from 10:10 – 11:00 a.m. in room 116 for a class on “Manifesting God within and around through prayer, meditation, sacred readings and mindfulness.”

ADULT EDUCATION FALL 2019

September 15 - October 13 - Russell Weeks will teach us about Maccabees I and II.  These are part of the Apocrypha, those mysterious books missing from our King James & later Protestant Bibles but familiar to our Catholic and Orthodox friends.  They are a historical account of political, military, and diplomatic events from the time of Judaea’s relationship with Antiochus IV Epiphanies of Syria (reigned 175–164/163bc).  If you have ever wondered what the Jewish Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is about, you can learn it now!
