“The Church Is Organized,” Friend, March 2017
After the Book of Mormon was translated, it was published as a book of scripture. A month later, the first official meeting of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was held in a farmhouse. About 60 people came. Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery blessed and passed the sacrament. Jesus Christ’s Church was finally organized on the earth again! A few years later, the Lord asked Emma Smith, Joseph’s wife, to collect hymns for the Saints to sing during their Church meetings.
