Swords to Ploughshares Event

What if we made a commitment to solve our problems without guns or violence? Come join us for this interactive event where RawTools will transform a donated gun into a garden tool! The event will include music, food, and inspiring speakers (Shane Claiborne and Michael Martin). This event will be a springboard for statewide discussions about reducing gun violence in Utah. Everyone is invited

This event is free but tickets are required for planning purposes. See the Facebook link for information on getting a ticket.

Once the garden tool is made we will be rotating it among communities of faith throughout Utah and asking them to host their own conversations around the idea of making a commitment to solve our problems without guns or violence.

Art + Belief Film Screening

Art + Belief Film Screening

The Adult Education Committee at WPC is proud as can be to screen the documentary film, Art & Belief, co-directed by our own Nathan Florence on Sunday evening, October 14 -- 6:30pm - 8:00pm.

"Art + Belief" tells the remarkable story of artist Trevor Southey, as well as a group of like-minded artists that sought to start a new movement for Mormon artists ("Art and Belief"). Originally from Africa, Southey was educated in the U.K., immigrated to the U.S. to teach at B.Y.U., and spent his later years in San Francisco and Oakland. He passed away in Salt Lake City in 2015.

A good number of members and friends of Wasatch have seen this film and we are excited to show it at our church before it becomes (fingers crossed) a major motion picture with national distribution!
