UPCOMING MONTHLY MEETING PLANS!
Our November Relief Society Monthly Meeting will be held Wednesday, November 7th, at 7PM in the Stake Center Chapel. Sister Vickie Winterton will present a lecture on Organizing Your Time. You will remember her helpful lecture regarding Organizing Your Home. Since her presentation last April I believe I've jettisoned nearly 600 lbs. of "stuff"--YES!!!

December's monthly meeting will be held Wednesday, December 5th, in the Relief Society room. It's titled "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Please bring any extra Christ-mas ornaments for our Charlie Brown tree (Note: It will be a little larger than Charlie's.)

January's monthly meeting will be held Wednesday, January 9th, in the Relief Society room. Rose Marie Morrell, a seminar teacher of writing personal and family history, will share a synopsis of her 6 week class. Don't let time erase your amazing family stories--write them down!

Glenn Livingston's Eagle Project:   I am starting work on my Eagle Project, building a dock for one of the lakes at Aspen Lakes  (our Stake property).  I am collecting donations to help me purchase the lumber, hardware, and flotation devices needed for the dock.  If you would be willing to donate $15 (or any amount would be appreciated), please look for the sign-ups in our meetings on Sunday, 10/28!  I will be coming around with the Cub Scouts on Thursday, Nov 1, between 4-5 pm.  Thanks for your support!

OCTOBER VISITING TEACHING MESSAGE
Honoring Our Covenants - Visiting teaching is an expression of our discipleship and a way to honor our covenants as we serve and strengthen one another. 
Dear Sisters, I loved President Hinckley’s encouragement to “try a little harder to be a little better.” That thought can certainly apply to our visiting teaching. My heart is touched and my eyes get a little wet when I hear about the beautiful service you provide to many of the sisters in our ward. And, sometimes my heart aches when I review the visiting teaching report and see lists of sisters that haven't had a visit, and some for multiple months. 

The responsibilities of a visiting teacher are to teach and to minister. Delivering a lesson each month is teaching, but not always ministering. Sometimes instead of a visit, a sister needs a flower, a note, or a phone call.

When we “minister” our visiting teaching is never “done,” and that’s ok. Find a way to report about the contact and the spiritual and temporal well-being of the sisters. It can be done at the church. It can be done at their home. But there is no substitute for the personal contact – this is where you show you care.
We don’t get to choose our partner, or whom we visit and schedules don’t always mesh. Visiting teachers need to work together to find inspired ways to work together to watch over their sisters. Maybe it is one of you visiting and another one doing something else.

Visiting teaching is one of the things we do with faith. We show that we believe in Christ and His gospel and in His way by doing this one thing that gives us the chance to behave as He behaved and do as He did.

This month it is my prayer that we will “try a little harder to be a little better.”

STAKE CENTER CONSTRUCTION
The construction on the Stake Center is now well under way.  Last week the crews saw cut and took out the cement in the west hall from the relief society room to the foyer and took the cement out in the primary room.   They will try to keep one set of bathrooms open during the construction in the evenings.

The east side of the building should be open during the construction.  This includes everything from the library north, the cultural hall, chapel and stake offices.  They will also put plywood over the cut out area on the west side giving access to the bishop offices during the evening hours.  It would be best if we tried to limit use during the day while the construction crews are working due to the noise and dust.

We will keep you updated as construction continues.   Completion date is still scheduled for October 13th.

  • She is in need of a chest of drawers. If you have a spare one you can let go, please let me know, or contact her.
  • Feel free to contact her at nubianreal@hotmail.com if you want more information about her schedule and availability.
