Recently, the Relief Society presidency of the Hidden Lakes branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was reorganized. The Hidden Lakes branch is a congregation of young single adults, and Relief Society is one of the largest women’s organizations in the world.  

Relief Society is part of all congregations of The Church throughout the world and is for women ages 18 and over.  It is an official organization of The Church – “the Lord’s organization for women.” The purpose of Relief Society, according to mormonnewsroom.org, is “to provide support for the temporal and spiritual needs of all women in the Church, as well as others who are in need.”  Relief Society also helps to strengthen individuals, families, and homes – and increase personal faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

Terra Mitchell serves as the Relief Society president for the Hidden Lakes branch, with Zuggeyly Mendoza as the first counselor and Adrianna Plemons as the second counselor.
 As for serving in the Relief Society in this area, Ms. Mitchell said, "It’s a treat!  Our meetings are real and meaningful.  I enjoy the sisterhood that we have and how diverse we are.  We are in different phases of life, from different cultures with different experiences, but Relief Society brings us together, united in the cause of Christ.  I'm grateful to be associated with these women.  And, I’m especially grateful for their desire to do good and follow the Savior.”

With so much that goes on in our busy lives, Ms. Mendoza said, “What comfort it is to know that we have each other, and that we are committed to strengthen each other and those around us – in the Savior’s way.”  

Ms. Plemons said, “There is so much to love about Relief Society.  I think it is wonderful that The Lord is so aware of us that He would establish an organization for women so that we could talk about, teach about, and share our thoughts about Jesus Christ.  Relief Society is about doing as Jesus would do, serving as He would have us serve.  To me, Relief Society is so much more than just a Sunday thing – it’s a forever thing.”   

The Young Single Adults Hidden Lakes Branch ward (congregation) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meets every Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at the LDS chapel located at 3069 Ooltewah Road in Ooltewah, TN.  Over 100 single adults attend, and visitors are welcome.
