Activities at the ward level bring Church members together as “fellowcitizens with the saints” (Ephesians 2:19). In addition to providing fun and entertainment, activities should build testimonies, strengthen families, and foster unity and personal growth.
Activities strengthen members by giving them a sense of belonging and mutual support. Activities should help members feel connected to others their age, to their leaders, and to their families. Activities should also help members see how living the gospel brings “the joy of the saints” (Enos 1:3).
The quorum organized an activity this evening to make laulaus at Bill Sellers' house. This was a good opportunity to learn how to make laulaus (over 200 made) and to foster unity.
