LA GRANDE — The La Grande Stake Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has asked that all attendees at indoor church meetings continue to wear face masks and maintain social distancing, even though the CDC rules have relaxed for those who have been fully vaccinated.
As outlined in the president’s email to all stake members on May 22, the church wants to avoid situations that may cause divisions among our members.
The “Come, Follow Me” lesson for the week of May 31-June 6 is based on Doctrine and Covenants sections 60-62, which are revelations given through the Prophet Joseph Smith in August 1831 about missionaries, missionary work and spiritual guidance. Sabbath Day discussions of these home-based lessons continue to be held during the second hour of church meetings on the first and third Sunday of each month.
