Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
LA GRANDE — Individual wards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continue to meet in person, with limited size groups and condensed time schedules. Members are encouraged to contact their ward’s leaders for meeting information. Face coverings and social distancing are required at all meetings.
For the week of Feb. 15, the church’s at-home “Come, Follow Me” lesson is on Doctrine & Covenants 14-17, which covers the time when Joseph Smith began to board with the Whitmer family while completing the translation of the Book of Mormon and securing its copyright. Members of the Whitmer family were blessed with the opportunity to receive direct revelation through Joseph Smith and to be witnesses of the plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated. As church building use increases, members are reminded of our duties to care for them.
RootsTech Connect, a virtual family history event, will take place Feb. 25-27. Visit the newsroom on the Church’s website to learn about the keynote speakers.
