The true joy of Christmas is in the everlasting love of Christ. To keep that joy:

“…feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.” 2 Nephi 32:3

Wishing you a joyous Christmas and blessings in the coming New Year.

Tithing Settlement

November 28, 2011

Dear Kolob YSA Members,

As we near the end of the 2011 calendar year, it is time for our ward to hold our Annual Tithing Settlement.  The Church Handbook of Instructions states, “All members should attend tithing settlement to make sure their contribution records are correct and to declare to the bishop their status as tithe payers.  If possible, all members of the family should attend tithing settlement.”

Accordingly, I would like to invite you to come and meet with me and declare your status as a tithe payer.  To make it possible for each member of our ward to attend tithing settlement, we have posted a schedule on the bishop’s door of available time spots.  The schedule for this year’s Tithing Settlement will be all day Saturday, December 10th.  Once you sign up please arrive a few minutes early to help us remain on schedule.

As a reminder, when a  member does not attend tithing settlement and declare his/her tithing status, then I, as their Bishop, must state for Church records whether I  feel they are a full, part or a non tithe payer.  This then becomes the official record of the Church.

Prior to meeting with me, you will have the opportunity to review your Individual Ordinance Summary as well as update your profile in the Church Directory which will include the taking of your picture.

If for some reason you are unable to attend on the schedule day of December 10th, please call or text our Ward Clerk, Brother Arden Hjorth at 801.369.1848 to arrange a different time. 

In light of the number of YSA’s in our ward, the time for each tithing settlement appointment is necessarily limited.  If you have additional matters that you need to discuss with me, I invite you to call or text our Executive Secretary, Brother Brad Critchfield 801.368.5874 to schedule a separate time to meet when we can have more time.

Thank you for your continued devotion to the gospel.  I look forward to meeting with you as we conclude the year.

Warm Regards,

Bishop Karl P. Lifferth

Welcome to the fold Betty!

Saturday night brought quite a treat to the Kolob YSA Ward! Betty Cruz followed the Savior's example and witnessed to God and all of us, that she is willing to take upon her the name of Jesus Christ and to keep His commandments and serve Him. Smiles just don't get much bigger than this!

Sunday Betty was confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Her wonderful family was there to support her. We are so excited that Betty has come into our mist! Thank you Jasicca for all your prayers and love for Betty and allowing us to love Betty too!

A big thanks to the Activities Committee for putting together such a fun Ward Halloween Party! Bobbing for apples, tossing pumpkins and decorating ghost cookies has never been so exciting!

Congrats to all our costume winners!

The Bonfire

First Cluster Activity!
Q: What's a cluster?
A: Six young singles adult wards coming together for a night of fun!

Jolley's Ranch provided the perfect spot and the down pour of rain all afternoon leading up to our 7pm bash, left the mountain side awesomely green!  (We won't even mention awesomely wet too! ;) )

 The evening brought:

Tug of War
Screaming Vikings
Link Tag
Life Savors
and Marshmallow Towers!


Oh and let's not forget that we had PIES in every direction! It was a fun time.  If you weren't able to join us, make sure you don't miss our Iron Chef ward activity on Sept 29th!
