Our People and Programs

Church isn’t just a place to worship God—it’s also a place to serve Him.


Come be Part of a Church Community


A community of service and love

One of the best ways to serve God is by taking care of the people around us. That might be bringing a hot meal to someone in need or simply being a good friend. Church members also volunteer to fill specific roles in their congregation like teaching Sunday School, playing music, organizing activities, or doing missionary work.  

Our congregations, called wards or branches, are made up of Church members from nearby neighborhoods. Your ward can become your extended family in a way. You might have even heard members of our Church call each other “brother” or “sister.”

Ministering is a program to make sure every Church member has a friend they can lean on in times of need. Adults and youth are asked to befriend and care for specific families and individuals. Ministering helps us follow Jesus’s example of how to love our neighbor as ourselves. We visit each other, pray for each other, and comfort each other. 

Family home evening

Because families are so important, Latter-day Saints reserve one night a week for family night. They spend time together, learn the gospel, eat treats, and have fun.

Relief Society

Though you may never have heard of it, the Relief Society is the largest women’s organization in the world. It’s a sisterhood committed to helping the needy, building faith, and strengthening families. They hold various social and service activities throughout the year. Come join us! 

Elders Quorum

Elders Quorum is the men’s group. As part of church, they meet together for faith-building lessons. One of their major responsibilities is service; they care for the widows, do yard work, or even haul furniture. They often arrange social activities, such as barbeques or sporting events.

Young Men and Young Women

Young men and women ages 12–18 have their own Sunday School classes during church. One evening a week, they meet for activities such as Boy Scouts, sporting events, service projects, and learning life skills. They also have dances a few times a year. 


Primary is for children ages 3–11. On Sundays, Primary children sing songs, participate in fun learning activities, and are taught lessons about Jesus and His teachings.
