Church Services This Week at Ridge Crest Ward Northridge Stake Layton Utah 15 June 2014

Elders Quorum

Father's Day
What are scriptures that remind you of your father?

The instructor shared Luke 10:30-37 as a scripture that reminded him of his father.  That is the story of the Good Samaritan.

Ogden temple open house volunteers needed for:
Wed Aug 13, 2014 11-4
Thur Sept 4, 2014 3-8

It is not necessary to retaliate against those that figuratively step on your toes.

Matthew 6:12
 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Matthew 18:27
 27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

1 Nephi 1:1
Why did Nephi open with this?

Don't wait for teaching opportunities with your kids.  Pay attention at all times.

Proverbs 3:12
12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Mosiah 27:14
12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Don't lower the standard because love our kids and don't want to be mean.

You don't necessarily have to be mean, but you do need to be consistent and at times stern or full on rebuke.

John 13:15
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

1 Timothy 4:12
12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Sunday School
"God Honors Those Who Honor Him "
God gives us blessings that are eternal and not necessarily immediate.  Sometimes those blessings are trials.

He blesses us with that which will make us eternally stronger.

Do we receive promises from the Lord and then still sit there and fret?

The sons of Eli were not just fornicating at the temple, but they are using their standing and position to take advantage of the women coming to the temple. They compounded serious sins with other serious sins.

Sacrament Service
A father should be slow to anger.

A father should pass knowledge onto his children and others.

We should remember our Heavenly Father on father's day as well as our early father.  On Father’s Day earthly father's should reflect on how they are like Heavenly Father and where they can improve.

Doctrine and Covenants 87:8
8 Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly, saith the Lord. Amen.

Be involved in the community.  Look for ways to be involved regularly and not just when there is tragedy or disaster.
