I hope your kids have had a good start to the school year! Our program year is beginning soon, and I want to fill you in on some upcoming events and activities.

First, our all-church Labor Day retreat is happening next weekend, and there is still time to sign up to attend for part of a day, one night, or the whole time- whatever works for you. You can find more details here.

Sunday September 10 is a big one for WPC. It is our annual Draft Day, during which we highlight all the different program areas and sign folks up for new opportunities. And, it is the return of two services, iBelieve at 9am and traditional worship at 11:15. There are a few opportunities for you and your kids that day:

  • For kids who went to Camp Wasatch (or who just like to sing!), they are invited to sing our favorite Camp Wasatch song, I've got the joy, joy, joy down in my heart at the end of the first and beginning of the second service. If your child is interested you need to do two things: email me and let me know your child/ren will participate, then arrive in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30 on Draft Day for a practice.
  • During Sunday School hour (10:10-11:00) Draft Day tables will be set up in Fellowship Hall for adults to explore and learn more about the groups at WPC. You are invited to check out all the tables, and be sure to come by the CM table to update your information and learn about the upcoming year,
  • During Sunday School hour children and youth are invited to go to the downstairs fellowship hall to help make lunches and help set up for Family Promise, which we are hosting that week. After doing some service the kids will enjoy doughnuts in the gym. 

Sunday September 17 is the first day of Sunday School kickoff! Things are a little different this year, and to let the kids know what is new and build some expectations and excitement for the year, the first Sunday School will be held in the gym for all kids, 4 years old-6th grade from 10:15-11:00.
