Church — meetings and classes

“I can guarantee that there will always be someone at every Church meeting you attend who is lonely, who is going through challenges and needs a friend, or who feels like he or she doesn’t belong. You have something important to contribute to every meeting or activity, and the Lord desires for you to look around at your peers and then minister as He would.” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, “The Needs Before Us,” General Conference, October 2017)

“Instead of attending church with the question of ‘What am I going to get out of this meeting?’ ask, ‘Who needs me today? What do I have to contribute?'” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, “The Needs Before Us,” General Conference, October 2017)

“My participation in each and every Church activity was helping me develop a lifelong pattern and commitment to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.” (Ann M. Dibb, Young Women General Presidency, “Be Thou an Example of the Believers,” General Conference, April 2009)

“I only do one thing for myself when I go to church: I take the sacrament for me. The rest of the time I watch for others who need me, and I try to help and nurture them.” (Alicia, quoted in Kathleen H. Hughes, Relief Society General Presidency, “That We May All Sit Down in Heaven Together,” General Conference, October 2005)

“Our sense of belonging begins on Sunday as we hear each other’s voices. No teacher should give her lesson to a group of silent sisters, because the lesson is our lesson.” (Bonnie D. Parkin, Relief Society General President, “Belonging Is Our Sacred Birthright,” General Conference, October 2004)
