Book Club

Book Club this Thursday (Sorry, this is from a couple of Thursdays ago. Ari :) was uplifting as we listened to comments on books that had been read.

Book Club for October will be on October 13 – second Thursday at Niemann’s, 132 1st Avenue, at 7:00. Parking is available in the driveway and across the road.

The book for this month is Daughters in My Kingdom – The History and Work of Relief Society, published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Forward is a Message from the First Presidency encouraging the Sisters to study this book. And..don’t skip the Preface—it gives you a desire to read the complete book.

The books are a gift from the First Presidency and the Relief Society and were handed out at Relief Society last Sunday. If you do not have one, ask Sister Gibbs or come by my house where she left twelve of them.

I am on Chapter 6 now (with my red pencil in hand) and have learned many things and read about activities in which I participated—which was a surprise to me. The reading is inspiring, it gives knowledge about Relief Society that I didn’t know and some are thoughts I will never forget. One is: A sister who had been through World War 11 in East Germany was asked how she kept a testimony during all these trials. She said, “I didn’t keep a testimony through those times—my testimony kept me.”

Even if you can’t come share with us, read the book and enjoy the history and testimonies of Relief Society. Ila Marie Niemann

September 16th & 17th 2011 Stake Temple Days

Temple Day "Sign-Up Sheets" Located in the Lobby
Check the sign-up sheets, as there are more session appointments available.

Bring Your Own Family Names to the Temple
If you are taking your own family's names to the temple to perform their ordinances, you do not need to submit them to the Stake.  However, please do contact Sister Lori Schallenberger or Sister Margaret Wirtz to make sure your names are "temple ready".

Printed "Ordinance Cards"
If you already have printed "ordinance cards" and have too many family names to perform ordinances by yourself and would like the help of members of our Stake, please take them to the Hamilton or Stevensville FHC's.
If you do not have your own family names, many members of our Stake would greatly appreciate help with temple work for their families!

All the printed "ordinance cards" will be sorted -- by specific ordinance and alphabetically.  This will be done by Lori Schallenberger and Margaret Wirtz and be taken to Bro. Greg Olsen on Thursday, September 15.

At the Temple
When members get to the Temple for the Friday, September 16, and Saturday, September 17 sessions, please come to the lobby of the Spokane Stake Center--just across the driveway--to pick up "ordinance cards" .

If you are doing more than one session of the same ordinance, pick up the number of cards you will need to do them.

Child Care
Child care will be available at the Stake Center on September 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00p.m., for ages 18 months and older.

Someone has volunteered to pay 1/2 of the motel room cost if you stay at the Best Western Pheasant Hill,
12415 E. Mission (Mission & Pines), 1-509-926-7432

Luncheon for Saturday, September 17
There will be a lunch, for everyone, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Food will still be available in the kitchen until 3:00 p.m.

Any questions, please contact your High Priest Group Leader or Bro. Greg Olsen.
Please contact Sister Margaret Wirtz or Sister Lori Schallenberger with questions about family names for temple ordinances.
