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 and Birthday Offerings. Click here for the January WOW calendar.
Pastor's Book Club
The Pastor's Book Group (usually) meets on the third Tuesday of each month. The book choice is always non-fiction. They meet to discuss the books in the church library on the Main Level.
Tuesday, January 23rd - Join Pastor Scott Dalgarno in reading The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion, by Jonathan Haidt. Discussion of Section Two: " There Is More To Morality Than Harm and Fairness" will be at 11:00am or 7:00pm in the Library.
As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has done the seemingly impossible—challenged conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to everyone on the political spectrum. Drawing on his twenty-five years of groundbreaking research on moral psychology, he shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns. In this subtle yet accessible book, Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts. If you’re ready to trade in anger for understanding, read The Righteous Mind.
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.
