Our recently upgraded sanctuary organ will be featured in the annual Bagby Memorial Concert on Monday, January 28th at 7:00 p.m. Dr. Kenneth Udy will perform as organ soloist with the Young Artist Chamber Players, a string orchestra of high school honor students under the baton of Jack Ashton, in the Western U.S. premiere of the Organ Concerto in A Minor by French-Canadian composer, Denis Bédard. The brilliant five-movement work showcases the new effects and sounds now available on our organ. Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend this special event at Wasatch Presbyterian Church.
Wreaths Across America (WAA)
Each December, communities across the country gather for services remembering our veterans and to participate in laying of wreaths at veteran gravesites. While the largest ceremony and volunteer event occurs at Arlington National Cemetery, cities and towns across the country participate on a local level.
In Salt Lake City, the ceremony and laying of wreaths will be at Fort Douglas Cemetery on December 15th at 10:00 a.m. You can donate a wreath to be placed at the Fort Douglas location (or any location) and/or volunteer your time to help with the laying of wreaths.
Please help Remember, Honor and Teach by sponsoring a wreath, volunteering or inviting friends to help. WAA was formed as a non-profit organization in 2007 and aims to “remember, honor and teach” about our military veterans.
Please visit the following page for more information, to sponsor a wreath, or sign-up to volunteer https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/14969/Overview/?relatedId=0.

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!
Nathan Florence and Matt Black’s documentary film, Art + Belief is a work-in-progress. Come view a screening of the documentary and see how the film is progressing. The film follows the journey of Trevor Southey and other artists as they navigate their individual artistic vision and religious conformity. The film will be screened at the home of Luana Uluave and Jason Miller in Cottonwood Heights. RSVP to Luana Uluave at firstname.lastname@example.org for address and directions. Suggested donation is $10/ticket, which will go directly to funding the final edit of the film. Nathan will be present for a brief Q&A.
