The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints To Host Self-Reliance Courses

Thursday, January 17, 2019

On Saturday, Jan. 26, at 10 a.m. on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will host a self-reliance devotional at 3067 Ooltewah Ringgold Road, Ooltewah. This devotional will kick off a series of “practical courses with spiritual benefits.”

At the devotional, participants will form into small groups where they will be paired with a facilitator. Each self-reliance group will focus on one of four topics – employment, education, small business, or personal finances.  

Groups typically meet once a week for 12 weeks.  Course materials may be accessed at https://www.lds.org/self-reliance/manuals-and-videos?lang=eng.  Manuals and videos may also be downloaded from this website.  

As the Church states, “Self-reliance does not mean that we can accomplish or obtain anything we want.” But, “through the power of Christ, and through our own effort, we can work for the spiritual and practical needs of life,” and become more self-reliant.  

As one participant put it, “Everything around us has a spiritual meaning, from our jobs, our education, to our life and family” (Vanessa Morales, USA).  This is why self-reliance groups are so impactful.  To read stories of self-reliance, please visit https://www.lds.org/self-reliance/stories?lang=eng

Self-reliance services offered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are free.  To become part of a self-reliance group, please attend on Jan. 26.  As the Church states, “You can have a better life, and God will help you.”
