A Christmas Message from our very own President Schoessow

To hold my granddaughter and get to know her.  My daughter and son-in-law had the help of doctors, nurses, extended family and a blurry-eyed grandfather to help usher this baby into the world. I am humbled at the stark contrast of another young couple and the birth of a child more than 2000 years ago.

History of Follow the Star

A Christmas Message from The Stake Presidency

As we commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ two millennia ago, we offer our testimony of the reality of His matchless life and the infinite virtue of His great atoning sacrifice. None other has had so profound an influence upon all who have lived and will yet live upon the earth.

Please enjoy this stirring rendition of O Holy Night sung by an emsemble choir of over 200 children, teens and adults. Forgive the quality - it's was shot on an iPhone :)
