Moroni 6: The Church Should Meet Together Often

Book of Mormon Student Study Guide, (2000), 199


Have you ever felt that you could not do anything very important in the Church because you are young? Moroni gave some basic instructions to both young and old about their membership in the Church. As you read Moroni 6, ask yourself the following questions: What am I doing to help nourish my family and friends with “the good word of God”? What can I do to help make Church meetings more spiritually uplifting?
