This Is Church
Church begins on Sunday, but does it end there?

Imagine if church extended beyond the four walls of a building to inspire us every day.

There’s a Place for You Here

We have programs for every age and stage of life. Each helps our members live happier, more fulfilling lives.

Sunday Meetings

Church is a refuge from the chaos of everyday life. Attending services gives us time to worship God and associate with others who are trying to be better and live more like Jesus did. It’s a spiritual recharge and helps us throughout the week.

Common Questions

 

Below are questions often asked about members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Click here to see the full list.

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are just like anyone else. We have ups and downs and everything in between. Latter-day Saints have a reputation for being a happy, peaceful people. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have challenges. Everyone in life is fighting a hard battle—but when we try our best to live the gospel of Jesus Christ, we have additional strength and peace to make it through.

As far as lifestyle is concerned, Latter-day Saints try to keep Jesus front and center. Our beliefs about the Savior and His teachings affect our day-to-day decisions about how we speak, dress, and act. For example, we try to avoid working on Sundays so we can attend church, serve others, and spend time with family. Faithful members of the Church do not smoke, drink alcohol, or gamble.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has many cultural traditions and customs that focus on the family. For example, we try to reserve one night a week for a home evening, or family night. Other activities throughout the week include Church gatherings like potlucks, small parties, or youth groups for teenagers. Many of our traditions are standard—like celebrating holidays with our families—and others are more unique—like offering a blessing for a new baby during church. As families, we pray together, read scriptures together, and on the first Sunday of every month, we even fast together.

Church service times vary from congregation to congregation. However, you can always count on one main worship service for everyone, followed by classes for childrenyouth, and adults.

The service for everyone is called “sacrament meeting.” This meeting consists of songs, prayers, and sermons (or “talks”) given by different members of the congregation every week. But the most important part of the meeting is when we take the sacrament (which is similar to communion) to remember the Savior.

Many people are uncomfortable with organized religion and prefer trying to be spiritual and live good lives. But the truth is, we need both! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides the structure and priesthood authority necessary to fulfill all of God’s commandments, including baptism and taking the sacrament (which is similar to communion). Going to church on Sundays is one aspect of worshipping God, and it is also important to be spiritual and serve others throughout the week.
