7.8 Quorum Meetings


Sunday Priesthood Meetings

Sunday priesthood meetings begin with opening exercises for Melchizedek and Aaronic Priesthood holders, conducted by a member of the bishopric (see 18.2.4).

After opening exercises, brethren attend their quorum meeting. The purposes of quorum meetings are to conduct business, learn priesthood duties, strengthen individuals and families, study the gospel of Jesus Christ, counsel together, and organize to meet local needs. Leaders prayerfully plan the meetings to accomplish these purposes.

Unless a member of the stake presidency or bishopric (or another presiding authority) is present, the elders quorum president presides over the elders quorum meeting. A member of the quorum presidency conducts.

On Sundays, members of the stake high priests quorum meet with the elders quorum if they are not assigned elsewhere.

The bishop may invite an 18-year-old Aaronic Priesthood holder to meet with the elders quorum.

Each month, quorum leaders plan Sunday meetings according to the information in the annual Instructions for Curriculum.


Stake High Priests Quorum Meeting

The stake presidency convenes a high priests quorum meeting for all high priests in the stake at least once a year. During this meeting the stake presidency conducts quorum business and instructs quorum members in their duties.
