Standards Night

Approximately 300 youth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gathered on Wednesday, March 15th to talk about their standards. Meetings were held in 3 church buildings located in Bunkerville and Mesquite. The youth council, headed by Bernice Fiso and Reid Jensen, came early to help set up and get everything prepared for the evenings event. Young men groups came to each building early to set up tables and chairs. Young Men and Young Women leaders also helped to provide some of the food for the event such as “funeral potatoes” and desserts. It was a huge group effort, but well worth that effort.

Youth were divided by age. The 16-17 year old youth met in Bunkerville. They first enjoyed a nice dinner provided and served by their leaders. They were then able to hear from Rusty and Josie Hughes. The Hughes’ talked to the youth about their standards in regards to music and dancing. Material was drawn from the “For the Strength of Youth” pamphlet published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Following the devotional, the youth gathered in the cultural hall of the Bunkerville chapel and were taught some ballroom dancing by Anna Bulloch. Dessert was served. The youth enjoyed the opportunity to mingle with their friends, learn new things and of course, eat!

MiaMaids and teachers, the 14 & 15 year old met in the Whipple Chapel located in Mesquite. They first attended a devotional where they heard from Jade and Haley Hafen along with David and Nikki Cardon. The topic, dating. Each couple took approximately 5 minutes to talk with the youth about who they date, when they should start dating and to help them understand the purpose of dating. Dinner followed.

Deacons and Beehives, the 12 & 13 year old met in the Stake Center where they heard from Brother Nathan Porter, the current seminary teacher, and his wife Tiffany. They learned about the importance of face to face communication. Technology is a useful tool, but should not replace our daily interactions with others. Dinner was served following this devotional as well.

All the youth who attended were happy they came and left feeling good about what they had learned and participated in.
