To Burn? or Not to Burn? What LDS Know About the 2nd Coming That the World Does Not Know
We are living in wonderfully exciting times. Each day brings us closer to the return of the LORD GOD to the earth to rule and reign for a thousand years (See Article of Faith 10). Latter-Day Saints have Living Prophets, who have been receiving revelation and talking about the 2nd coming for 186 years. During that time, they have revealed many things about the 2nd coming—that rest of the world does not know. (And as one Latter-day Apostle put it… ‘have scarcely dawned on the Latter-day Saints themselves.’) The 2nd Coming is Coming. We are commanded to know and watch the signs. (See D&C 45:39) So, come to this class to see what the modern prophets are saying about the second coming. You will learn some things that Latter-day Saints should know that bring GREAT PEACE in a time of great commotion.

The Power of the Temple in Our Lives
Elder Body K. Packer said: “Ordinances and covenants become our credentials for admission to his presence. To worthily receive them is the quest of a lifetime; to keep them thereafter is the challenge of mortality.” These ordinances can only be received in the temples of the Lord. Our lives are enriched as we receive these ordinances and continue to do the work for those who have gone before us. In the Wagon Box prophecy given in 1884 by Wilford Woodruff, he said that: “God will bless and multiply the land.” We see the results or that prophecy in our beautiful Snake River Valley today.

Nephi's Zip Code and Other Perplexities: Geography and Archeology of the Book of Mormon (repeat)
Because the Book of Mormon describes events that happened hundreds of years ago, it can sometimes be challenging to see the men and women of those times as real people. Where did they live? What did they look like? What kind of clothes did they wear? What were their houses and cities like? While there are no definitive answers to questions such as these, we will explore some tantalizing possibilities that can help us bridge the gulf between their lives and ours, to make their experiences more powerful (as well as more poignant) for us today.

      Join us for live, online streaming of the Opening and Closing events, President Clark's Devotional, and three selected classes.

      Sometimes parents may want to take a child to class; they are welcome to do so. However, we ask that parents be sensitive
      to those around them.

      Programs especially designed for youth ages 6–11, 12–13, and 14–18 are available. You may view the Youth Programs schedule (in PDF format) and register your children through the registration page.
