Young People Participate in
Tongan Congregation Inauguration

The recently formed Tala Ki Mamani (“Tell the World”) church in Salt Lake City, Utah, invited young people to help celebrate the church’s inaugural ceremony last October. “My greatest joy was seeing Christian young people actively involved in singing and sharing the love of Jesus Christ,” said Elder Leon Brown, president of the Nevada-Utah Conference. This congregation makes a point to reach out to young people. Through hosting youth and Pathfinder programs, they are finding engaging ways to involve their youth in the church. This church family is excited to tell the world (and tell young people) about God’s love!




The Finau family children from Reno, Nev., participated in the afternoon musical program through sharing their love of singing.

Provo Church ACS Center
Helps Build Community

In Provo, Utah, the Adventist Community Services Center is used on a weekly basis by approximately 700 members of the community, including The American Red Cross, the Utah Valley Symphony, and the Utah Valley Handbell Choir. The ACS Center provides use of the facility to groups for free, and the donations the center receives are used to fund the ACS disaster response efforts and to meet other needs! Every Sabbath, the Provo congregation welcomes guests whose use of the center spark an interest in visiting. This church’s connection to the community through their ACS Center is one small way that they are living God’s love.





The Utah Valley Handbell Choir rehearses every week in the Provo SDA Community Center.
