Belmont Ridge Ward Elders Quorum

Get to know Belmont Ridge Elders Quorum members, activities and upcoming events.

Operating as usual

[03/11/17]   The Bishop has asked all ward members to participate in our quarterly church cleaning assignment; we all use the building and are all asked to equally share in cleaning it. This includes brethren, sisters, and families/kids. March is our ward's turn again, and families associated with the Elder's Quorum have been assigned to conduct the cleaning on the Saturdays of 11 and 25 March.

To reduce the burden on everyone, we are again only asking each family to be involved one time during the month. Last names beginning with A-I are assigned to clean the chapel tomorrow, 11 March. Last names beginning with J-Z are assigned the 25 March cleaning. Cleaning both days will begin at 8am; please be prompt so we can all work together to complete the cleaning as quickly as possible. Upon arrival on the date you are assigned, please check-in with you date's leader for a cleaning assignment. (We will all help each other until all assignments are complete so all can leave together.) With good participation, we are generally wrapped up in just over an hour. Donuts will be provided!

Note: If you cannot make the morning you are assigned, please find someone from the other date to switch with and inform your date's leader as to who you are switching with. All are asked to please faithfully fill this assignment, as failure to participate places an unfairly greater burden on others.

(If you notice anyone I have inadvertently left off the below lists, please forward this note to them.)

11 March: Last names A-I (joined and led by Gregg Bowen)
Carr (Jeff)
Carr (Lige)
Grant (Justin)
Grant (Nathaniel)

25 March: Last names J-Z

[02/12/17]   Thank you, Brother Tommy Jackson, for your lesson this week on happiness. -- Some things to think about: What is happiness? What can you do to increase the positivity in your life? What act of service can you render to those around you? Are you valuing your personal relationship with your family members above material things?

Here's a great quote from the lesson:

“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed.

“[The fact is] most putts don’t drop. Most beef is tough. Most children grow up to be just people. Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration. Most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. …

“Life is like an old-time rail journey—delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed.

“The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride”

(Jenkins Lloyd Jones; quoted in “Big Rock Candy Mountains,” Deseret News, 12 June 1973, A4).

[01/08/17]   In thinking of Calderwood family's recent loss, I share this scripture:

"11 Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection—Behold, it has been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life.

12 And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of those who are righteous are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all care, and sorrow."

(Book of Mormon, Alma 40)
In memory of Connor Calderwood.

[11/25/16]   "2 ...the alms of your prayers have come up into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth, and are recorded in the book of the names of the sanctified, even them of the celestial world.

3 Wherefore, I now send upon you another Comforter, even upon you my friends, that it may abide in your hearts, even the Holy Spirit of promise; which other Comforter is the same that I promised unto my disciples, as is recorded in the testimony of John.

4 This Comforter is the promise which I give unto you of eternal life, even the glory of the celestial kingdom;"

(D&C 88:2-4.) 11/17/2016

Finding Your Life.


Press Forward with a steadfastness in Christ.


During Saturday's General Conference sessions, I heard the theme of "pressing forward" echoed. (2 Nephi 31:20-21.)


I testify that God will protect you in 'every time of trouble' as you follow his laws. I have a personal witness as I have seen this come to pass in my own life.

5 Which glory is that of the church of the Firstborn, even of God, the holiest of all, through Jesus Christ his Son—

[02/13/16]   "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build yourfoundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." (The Book of Mormon, Helaman 5:12.) 01/15/2016

[12/16/15]   "28 Yea, thus we see that the gate of heaven is open unto all, even to those who will believe on the name of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God.

29 Yea, we see that whosoever will may lay hold upon the word of God, which is quick and powerful, which shall divide asunder all the cunning and the snares and the wiles of the devil, and lead the man of Christ in a strait and narrow course across that everlasting gulf of misery which is prepared to engulf the wicked—

30 And land their souls, yea, their immortal souls, at the right hand of God in the kingdom of heaven, to sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and with Jacob, and with all our holy fathers, to go no more out." (The Book of Mormon, Helaman 3:28-30.)

[11/22/15]   "And it is requisite with the justice of God that men should be judged according to their works; and if their works were good in this life, and the desires of their hearts were good, that they should also, at the last day, be restored unto that which was good." (The Book of Mormon, Alma 41:3.)

[10/17/15]   36 And when the light shall begin to break forth, it shall be with them like unto a parable which I will show you—

37 Ye look and behold the fig trees, and ye see them with your eyes, and ye say when they begin to shoot forth, and their leaves are yet tender, that summer is now nigh at hand;

38 Even so it shall be in that day when they shall see all these things, then shall they know that the hour is nigh.

39 And it shall come to pass that he that feareth me shall be looking forth for the great day of the Lord to come, even for the signs of the coming of the Son of Man.

40 And they shall see signs and wonders, for they shall be shown forth in the heavens above, and in the earth beneath.

41 And they shall behold blood, and fire, and vapors of smoke.

42 And before the day of the Lord shall come, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon be turned into blood, and the stars fall from heaven.

43 And the remnant shall be gathered unto this place;

44 And then they shall look for me, and, behold, I will come; and they shall see me in the clouds of heaven, clothed with power and great glory; with all the holy angels; and he that watches not for me shall be cut off. (D&C 45)

[09/30/15]   95 And there shall be silence in heaven for the space of half an hour; and immediately after shall the curtain of heaven be unfolded, as a scroll is unfolded after it is rolled up, and the face of the Lord shall be unveiled;

96 And the saints that are upon the earth, who are alive, shall be quickened and be caught up to meet him.

97 And they who have slept in their graves shall come forth, for their graves shall be opened; and they also shall be caught up to meet him in the midst of the pillar of heaven—

98 They are Christ’s, the first fruits, they who shall descend with him first, and they who are on the earth and in their graves, who are first caught up to meet him; and all this by the voice of the sounding of the trump of the angel of God.

(D&C 88:95-98.)

[09/16/15]   "And now, behold, my beloved brethren, this is the way; and there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God. And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God, without end. Amen."
