Maxfield has served faithfully in many church callings as well as in scouting. He served his mission in San Jose, Costa Rica and is currently serving as bishop of the Westwood Ward in Price, Utah of the Helper, Utah Stake.

Nothing is more important than coming to Christ. He is the Savior of the World!
Members of the church have always studied the Christmas story and learned about the Savior (Luke 2). Many families struggle with how to help their families come to seek and find the Savior. In this class, we will discuss what the shepherds, Simeon and Anna, and Mary and Joseph did to seek and find Christ. We will also explore what they did once they found Christ and how it affected their lives and how it is a pattern for us.
