Primary is for Children

Children meet during worship services each Sunday to discuss doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Children three to eleven years of age participate in learning activities and the favorite—singing songs. The children are given opportunities to participate in these meetings by giving prayers, reading scriptures and giving talks.

Friends of Religious Freedom

Building relationships with opinion leaders, the media, those not of our faith—with those who may or have befriended The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is an important responsibility of Public Affairs Councils. Mormon Newsroom and other social media can evoke favorable impressions of the good that the Church represents.
