Hello!

This Sunday is our last Sunday School of block 2, during which we've learned a lot about the Presbyterian Church, worship, and what makes WPC special. We'll take a break from Sunday School next week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, and we'll resume Dec. 3 for Advent, during which we will study the "Jesse Tree," the stories from the Old Testament that lead us to the birth of Christ.

Advent is right around the corner...if your child wants to participate in the annual Christmas Play during 9 and 11:15 worship on Sunday December 17, please fill out this form.

f your kids want to practice the songs at home, you can hear them online!

e will kick off the season of Advent in a few ways, mark your calendars!

Friday December 1 at 6pm we'll have a Family Fun Night: Christmas Movie edition...wear your PJs, enjoy some pizza and popcorn, and watch Elf in the Loft. Bring a side dish to share, and RSVP to dfleishman@wpcslc.org.

Mark your calendars for December 1, we will have Friday Family Fun Night and watch Elf, enjoy popcorn, and get excited about the season!

Good evening!

First off, thank you to everyone who pitched in with set-up, running activities, providing supplies, and clean-up at our Halloween Extravaganza on Sunday night. It was a spirited, spooky event, thanks to everyone who made it possible! Two thumbs up to Club 56 for their fantastic Spook Alley!

This Friday, November 3, is our Family Fun Night of service for KidsEat. At 6pm we will gather in the gym to assemble food donations into backpacks, then we'll head to the Loft for dinner prepared by the youth. Please bring an appetizer/snack to share, dinner and dessert are provided. RSVP to Dawn (dfleishman@wpcslc.org) so she can get the right amount of food for dinner. 

This weekend Brad Leinberger will take family photos as a fundraiser for the camp fund. Sign up here if you haven't already. Brad will be in touch soon about the photo location, it is weather dependent so he will be making the call as close to photo time as possible.

The Muellers welcomed 2 baby girls on October 25 and the Cummings welcomed a boy on Oct. 27.  Please consider signing up to provide a meal for these families as they settle in to life with their new arrivals.  Please contact the church office for sign up information.

See you Sunday!
