Other Ward Relief Society Callings



Relief Society Meeting Coordinator and Committee

How do I serve the sisters in the ward by planning meaningful additional meetings?

9.2.5 A sister may be called to help the Relief Society presidency coordinate the planning of Relief Society meetings that are not held on Sunday. These meetings may include service, classes, projects, conferences, and workshops. 

As a presidency, consider the following questions: What needs has the bishop shared with us? What other needs do we know about? What kind of additional meeting could we plan to meet those needs?

Assistant Relief Society Secretary

What is my role as the assistant secretary?

9.2.5 An assistant secretary may be called to help the secretary with her responsibilities.

Advisers to Young Single Adult Sisters

What is my role in supporting young single adults by helping them draw near to the Lord, strengthen their testimonies, and take responsibility for their own spiritual, social, and temporal well-being?

9.2.5 Advisers to young single adult sisters work under the direction of the Relief Society counselor assigned to young single adults. They watch over and strengthen young single adult sisters.

9.7.2 Relief Society leaders teach young single adult sisters the purposes of Relief Society and give them opportunities to participate in the work of Relief Society. They assign young single adult sisters to serve as ministering sisters. Relief Society leaders may also give young single adult sisters other meaningful opportunities to serve and may recommend them to receive callings to serve in the Relief Society.

The Relief Society presidency assigns ministering sisters to each young single adult sister.

Prayerfully discuss with the presidency ways to help young single adults progress on the covenant path.

16.3.4 In a ward with a significant number of young single adults, the stake president and bishop may feel that a ward young single adult committee is needed.


Can the Relief Society presidency have additional committees?

9.2.5 The Relief Society presidency may form committees to accomplish ongoing work such as strengthening individuals, families, and homes; watching over young single adult sisters; welfare; emergency preparedness; temple and family history work; missionary work; convert retention; and activation. Leaders of the committees report to the Relief Society president or an assigned counselor. Committee members may be given specific areas of responsibility.

Prayerfully discuss forming additional committees based on the needs of the sisters.

Music Leaders and Pianists

What is the purpose of music in Relief Society meetings?

9.2.5 Appropriate music helps invite the Spirit in Relief Society meetings. The Relief Society presidency may recommend sisters to serve as music leaders and pianists for Relief Society meetings.

Review the purpose of music in Relief Society meetings, and ask if the selected music invites the Spirit in these meetings.
