Service at Wasatch
 

Wasatch is a proud member of Family Promise - four times per year we host families who are currently homeless for one week. Our next hosting session begins this Sunday. We have a great group of volunteers and still need several more people to help out, including Thurs night dinner, Thurs night overnight, Sat night dinner and Sat night overnight. Please consider volunteering, you can sign up at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4da4ae2ba7ff2-sign. If you have any questions, please contact Luana Uluave (uluave@gmail.com) or Allison Clements (allisonclements@gmail.com). 

The Deacons are seeking volunteers. The Wasatch Presbyterian Community has a handful of people who need rides to and sometimes from Sunday services and events such as the Tuesday Women's Bible study. Although a number of people already help, the Deacons wants to expand the list of volunteer drivers. If you want to join us in providing this service, please sign the sheet that will be available at the Deacons table on Draft Day.  The Deacons also rely on volunteers to prepare or purchase simple meals and take them to congregation members who are too ill or injured to cook themselves. The service is intended to have a number of people deliver one or two meals. If you want to volunteer, please sign the other sheet that will be available at the Deacons table.
 
Support Presbyterian Disaster Assistance’s emergency response and long-term recovery work in the areas affected by recent hurricanes by writing a check to Wasatch Presbyterian Church with “hurricane assistance” in the memo. 
 
Paul & Leora Hewitt will lead a group from Wasatch visiting Chiang Mai School in January.  Please consider picking up school supplies and schoolyard toys such as pencils, paper, jump ropes, etc to donate to their efforts. 

 Please note that the Scripture for this Sunday’s worship is Matthew 4:12-23
