Stake Teaching Training with CES

ANYONE IN TEACHING POSITIONS!!!!  The Stake is providing a "Teaching Training" on Aug. 11 from 9-3 (lunch is provided) at the stake center.  President Fullmer has arranged for Church Education System's representatives to come and train everyone.  PUT IT ON YOUR CALENDAR.  This training should bless the Primary and Primary Children as we learn more effective ways to invite the Spirit into our classes, scout meetings, achievement days, sharing time, and music activities.

We hope you all can come!

Cubs and Scouts

Thank you to all the leaders and helpers who participated in our scouting and cub events during June.  We are hearing good things!  These events took a lot of work and preparation and have been a blessing in the lives of our cub scouts and 11-year old scouts.  THANKS

July Presidency Message

Thank you so much for all the service you do for the children of this stake.  We are starting Ward Visits again, and have seem WONDERFUL things happening in our stake.  Your dedication and love will be bring blessing to you in return.  Thank you!

What a wonderful time to live on this Earth.  We are truly blessed to live on Earth now, during this preparatory period for the Lord's second coming, and to live in this free nation.  This land was set apart and prepared for many things.  Lehi was told, "ye...shall be led to a land of promise; yea, even a land which I have prepared for you; yea, a land which is choice above all other lands (1 Nephi 2:20)."  His descendants left a great record for us in these latter-days, that of the Book of Mormon.  Later, gentiles were brought here that the gospel might be restored.  We are told in 1 Nephi, Chapter 13, such events as Columbus coming to America, the bible being brought, and the use of the Bible and Book or Mormon together. to bring back lost truths.  Additionally, a blessing was left upon this land, "that whosoever should believe in this gospel in this land might have eternal life; Yeah that it might be free unto all of whatsoever nation kindered, tongue, or people they may be (D&C 10: 49-50)."  As you enjoy the 4th and remember freedom claimed by this nation, and the 24th to celebrate those faithful pioneers who laid the foundation for the Lord's world wide church, please don't forget to give thanks for the blessing you are so privileged to enjoy.

You are in our prayers of thankfulness.
