Hi I'm Carson

I grew up in Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently waiting to go on my mission. I have been called to the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma mission. My hobbies include: body building, hunting, backpacking and beekeeping.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. I have never had a doubt that this church was not true; so I continue to live the gospel still today.

How I live my faith

I am an instructor in my church, where I teach the men in my ward. I also fill in on Sunday School, which is with the adults in our ward. I also enjoy visiting with the widows each Sunday.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Carson
We love to have visitors attend our church meetings. Anybody is welcome. We hold church meetings for all ages to attend. We have church every Sunday. It is a 3 hour block. We attend Sacrament meeting, which is where families can sit together and partake of the sacrament. We believe this to be the most important meeting of the week. Men and boys prepare and pass bread and water for each member of the congregation to partake. We usually will listen to a couple of speakers who have been asked prior to the services. There might be a musical number performed by a member of the ward. There are also hymns which the entire congregation is encouraged to sing. There is also a Sunday School, where we break off into age groups: children under the age of 12 attend Primary for 2 hours. There is a nursery for all children 18 months - 3 years old. Teens 12 and older attend their appropriate class for 1 hour and the adults meet together. The last hour is spent with women 18 and older attending Relief Society, teen girls will meet together and all the members of the Priesthood meet together and split into their appropriate age groups.
