Here is a recap of Day One of the Assembly. If you have time today please join us at 9:00, 2:00, 7:00 for services here.

Sunday Morning:

Opening: Larry Gosier opened the service with songs Blessed Assurance and The Church’s One Foundation. After the songs Larry talked a short time about how Jesus is the Christ. Jesus is God, but people did not believe him because he was one of the people. We have to keep searching and growing in the Lord if we want to stay with Him. People today find Christ and then stop learning about him. This action causes these people to be left behind from Christ and his full gospel. This all sounds simple and easy, but human nature makes it difficult to put into actions. We need to stay persistent allow God to help us on our journey. We have Sacraments that we remember Christ and have him enter our hearts.

We had a Season of Prayer so that each person could prepare themselves for the Sacraments. After Sacraments we had a session of testimony to allow people to share how God has blessed each one of us.

Sunday Afternoon:

Terry Laws spoke in the afternoon service. God has a plan for us and or the world at large. Ever since God created humans there has been a plan in place for us to have salvation and for the second coming of Christ. We have to follow the plan that God has given us. We cannot make our own plan or do it on our own time line.  We must have faith in the plan that God has laid out. We must each do our own part that he has given us. No matter what our individual role might be, we each have to proclaim the gospel to the people. The number one thing to do in the plan of God is to preach the truth to the world. If we do this well, the rest of the plan will fall into place. We have to each stay the course with our walk with God. There are many outside forces that will try to pull each one of us away from the truth. God gives us trials and tribulation to test us and see how we will respond. Each trial that we have to go through has a purpose behind it. Each one of us has a part in the plan of God. In order for his plan to work as desired we must do our part. If we do not do our part it affects every other person. God has given us his plan in his written word. This can be found in the three books: The Bible, The Word of the Lord, and The Record of the Nephites.

Sunday Night:

Larry Gosier spoke this evening. We have to know God and strive to stay with him. Strait is the path that leads to salvation. We have to stay focused on the prize. It only takes one step the wrong direction on the strait path to be off of it. Christ gospel is the same. It only takes one little thing to make what you say not agree with God. We need to keep grounded in Christ. There will be times when we are working for the Lord that the Devil will try to pull us away from the truth. We must stay firm to the teaching of Christ and not allow us to be caught up with the ideas of the world. We must follow the teachings of Christ. We cannot take what Christ said and then add our own flavor to it and expect Christ to accept it.
