Women of Wasatch
The Presbyterian Women of Wasatch connect with the women in our congregation, our community, and worldwide. Many opportunities are available for serving, nurturing and supporting the mission of the church. Luncheons and/or programs are presented monthly, as well as a stitching group, book club, and bible study. Special activities such as Bunco and Bingo provide funds to support the international projects of the Thank You and Birthday Offerings. Click here for the May WOW calendar.

If you love Arches National Park you will adore this book!!
Desert Solitaire is a collection of vignettes about life in the wilderness and the nature of the desert itself by park ranger and conservationist, Edward Abbey. The book details the unique adventures and conflicts the author faces, from dealing with the damage caused by development of the land or excessive tourism, to discovering a dead body. However, Desert Solitaire is not just a collection of one man’s stories, the book is also a philosophical memoir, full of Abbey’s reflections on the desert as a paradox, at once beautiful and liberating, but also isolating and cruel. Often compared to Thoreau’s Walden, Desert Solitaire is a powerful discussion of life’s mysteries set against the stirring backdrop of the American southwestern wilderness.
The library at WPC is open to all and includes a wide range of books on religion, as well as art, social sciences, biography and fiction. About a third of the holdings are for youth and children, including board books for toddlers up through young adult offerings. The library is self serve, open Sunday mornings and during the week on Thursdays and Fridays, or by request
Women's Bible Study
Women's Bible Studies are offered every Tuesday morning at 10am and every Thursday morning at 6:30am. Both groups meet in Fellowship Hall and are small, informal gatherings. Visitors and new faces are welcome and encouraged. To join, enter through the Fellowship Hall doors. Bring the Bible you most like to read or borrow one of the Bibles from the Sanctuary.
Recently divorced or separated? Solo Sisters is an informal affiliation of women at WPC who share your status - and perhaps some of your unique experiences.
