Worship with Us in Our Sacrament Meeting - An Invitation to You!

LDS Church Meetinghouse with Edmonton Alberta Canada Temple in Background
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meet together every Sunday to participate in sacrament meeting (by partaking of the sacrament) and other church services. 

Visitors are always welcome to worship with us.

Visitors are always welcome to attend any of our Sunday church services. Search for your local ward/branch with this map and then come worship with us at any time. Please feel free to introduce yourself (to anyone) and let them know you are investigating the church. This way they will know you are an investigator (not a baptized member of the Church) and are unfamiliar with our services and where meetings are held. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ are very friendly and always happy to welcome you to one of our church services. If you'd like, they would be willing to introduce you to other members, the bishopric, and the missionaries. They will also be able to direct you to the appropriate Sunday School class for investigators called Gospel Principles, as well as help you take any children you might have to nursery, primary, or youth classes.
There are a few times during the year when regular Sunday Services are not held, such as during the weekends of General Conference, and Stake Conference. Visitors are also welcome to attend these services with us. Stake Conference, individually scheduled for each stake, is held in the Stake Center for two hours, usually from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Please feel free to come and worship with us at any time, we would be happy to have you join us.

Small gift?!?!?!?! Little treat?!?!?!?! - Use this creative "Christmas Tubes wraps" and make your Christmas Tree adorable!

Holidays Crafts! - Nativity by the little ones!

Take opportunity to teach your little kids what Christmas is about while making this cute nativity!
This nativity craft was originally designed to be printed, colored, and glued around toilet paper tubes to make the pieces stand up.  Since then, many readers have discovered that it’s just as good to print the pieces on card stock, and then use tape or staples to make them into a cylinder.
Materials Needed:
  • About 13 Toilet Paper Tubes, or just print the figures on Card Stock
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick, Tape, or Staples
  • Crayons
  • Download of Nativity Set (link below)

Directions and Tips
  • Print the Nativity Set
  • Color with Crayons
  • Cut out the pieces
  • Attach the pieces to toilet paper tubes with a glue stick, staples, or tape. If you’ve printed them on card stock, just roll them into cylinders and tape or staple. Some of the toilet paper tubes for the shorter figures will have to be cut shorter first. For most of the figures, just glue the bottom even with the bottom of the toilet paper tube and let the heads hang off the top.
A few of the pieces are different- see directions below.
When gluing the angel, cut the bottom line of her wings and let them flap free- don’t put glue on the back of them! Then curl the wings out slightly with your finger.
When gluing the empty stable, just glue each edge to a toilet paper tube half way around
When gluing the palm tree, cut the leaves around the bottom, and let them stand out as well. Don’t put glue on the back of the leaves.

Family Portrait in Pumpkins - Borrowed from the Blogs

Forget carving. Forget covering the whole pumpkin with paint. Just add a circle of leftover chalkboard paint to one side of each pumpkin and draw on some funny faces (anyone you know come to mind?). Do the family, a group of friends, your pets or even Mr. Jack-o'-Lantern himself.

“Stand Ye In Holy Places, and Be Not Moved"

In Las Vegas, Nevada 300 young people between the ages of 12-18 came together to express their testimonies of Jesus Christ through a special musical program.

“Wherever you are, you can bloom where you’re planted and make it a special place, and a Holy place.”

In a sweet video, the Las Vegas Youth shared their feelings about their experience expressing their testimonies of Christ through music, and also their thoughts in general about how to create a Holy Place no matter where you are.
