Rendering meaningful service is one way we can demonstrate God’s perfect love for His children. Adam’s Place Shelter in Washington, D.C., run by Catholic Charities of Washington, does this by offering men over the age of 18 a place to sleep at night.

Volunteers at Adam’s Place Shelter in Washington, D.C., greet men as they enter the shelter, serve dinner, and distribute bedsheets and mail. They offer a lending hand and a listening ear to those in need.

Take a look at this service project or find other opportunities to help in your local area by visiting our JustServe.org volunteer center below.

"The world can be a challenging and difficult place in which to live. We are often surrounded by that which would drag us down. As you and I go to the holy houses of God, as we remember the covenants we make within, we will be more able to bear every trial and to overcome each temptation. In this sacred sanctuary we will find peace; we will be renewed and fortified." -Thomas S. Monson #DCTemple #HearHim

Athletes from all over the world have come together in Tokyo, Japan. The Olympic Games will shine a light on athletes and teams demonstrating friendship and respect even as they compete against each other for gold, silver, and bronze medals.

There is a difference, however, between healthy competition and any kind of destructive contention, which the Savior declared was “not of [Him], but is of the devil” (3 Nephi 11:29). On the other hand, friendship and respect can literally be lifesaving.

I was among those who worked to develop an artificial heart-lung machine, which in turn helped in the pioneering of open-heart surgery. There was a great spirit of cooperation and respect among the few of us working in that new area of medical research. We knew that our real competition was against disease and death. Our cooperation in the race to pioneer new medical procedures literally saved lives.

It is possible to disagree with others without violating the Savior’s injunction to “love one another, as I have loved you” (John 15:12). It is possible to have a different opinion than your neighbor while still loving that neighbor. It is even possible to “compete” in a spirit of mutual respect that brings out the best in everyone.

May we reflect personally on what we can do to eliminate contention from our own lives as we embrace the Olympic ideals of excellence, friendship, and respect.

When the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles counsel together, Elder David A. Bednar said, “no one ever will treat lightly a reservation or a comment by a fellow prophet, seer and revelator.”

As we commemorate Juneteenth today, we invite all to read this message from the Stake Presidency below.

As we commemorate Juneteenth, the day celebrating the end of slavery in the United States, we reflect on what God teaches us about all His children. Every human being "is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny" irrespective of their ethnic origins. In our day, the Lord has spoken through revelation that "it is not right that any man [or woman] should be in bo***ge one to another.” This statement can have more than one meaning. Although speaking about physical bo***ge, this can also mean the need to remove spiritual and mental bo***ge related to prejudice from among us. Each of us may inherit views of other human groups that is not in keeping with this doctrine revealed by God.

President Russell M. Nelson, the prophet for the world today, recently stated: "please listen carefully to what I am about to say. God does not love one race more than another. His doctrine on this matter is clear. He invites all to come unto Him, 'black and white, bond and free, male and female.'…Today I call upon our members everywhere to lead out in abandoning attitudes and actions of prejudice. I plead with you to promote respect for all of God’s children." President Dallin H. Oaks, First Counselor to President Nelson, also recently taught: "As citizens and as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we must do better to help root out racism...This country should be better in eliminating racism not only against Black Americans, who were most visible in the recent protests, but also against Latinos, Asians, and other groups. This nation’s history of racism is not a happy one, and we must do better."

This weekend, let us begin to work past any differences among us that may have been taught to us by man and seek together to become one in Christ. Let us celebrate what makes each of us unique while also working together to build our communities the way God sees us: all part of the same eternal family.

We invite you to ponder how you can remove spiritual and mental bo***ge of prejudice within yourself, learn how to become more open and understanding towards different groups, and reach out to others who you wouldn't normally do so in your community to love your neighbor the way God does. The road is long, "but with God all things are possible."

With love,

From Kathryn Harvey:

We’re heartbroken to announce the passing of Helen Harvey from Montgomery Village Ward. Sister Harvey passed away on Friday, June 4th, in North Carolina while visiting her daughter, Lauren, and grandchildren: Jocelyn, Jonathan, and Jasmine. Her other daughter, Kathryn Harvey, made it to North Carolina to see her before she passed. Sister Harvey served her ward and this stake from the time she became a member of the church 30+ years ago. She served in many callings throughout that time: youth leader, Relief Society President, primary teacher, ward chorister…just to name a few. She loved fiercely and served many as much as she possibly could. She was wildly faithful in the church and had such a strong testimony of the gospel. There will be a “Celebration of Life” service held for her at 3pm on Tuesday, June 15th at the Germantown Stake Center. Please keep in mind to adhere to area guidelines and wear masks as necessary to keep everyone safe.

The Seneca Stake Activity Days Summer Activity was so much fun!! Big thank you to the parents and youth who made this activity possible. We learned a little, served a little and got a little bit (or maybe a lot) wet. More photos to come. 😁
Hi. We have an oxygen concentrator that rolls (with wheels). Since it cost an exorbitant amount of money, it would be nice to get some money from it. But in the event there is desperate need, we might need to see the bigger picture. In a perfect world, we both would fare well after the transaction. Anyway, I'll gladly expound by phone, or any other type of contact method, if you don't like phone. My number is 240-242-7818. Thank you.
Hi EVERYONE!!! FREE couch (and MAYBE the matching loveseat). Both are in good condition. Please call or text the number below. AND ......... you can tell a friend or neighbor! The 2nd best option is a Facebook response. If possible, please contact me very soon, before these get gone. Thank you. 😃 (240) 242-7818
We are looking for youth, YSA or adults who would like to help us with our Stake Primary Activity Days Summer Activity on August 14th at Black Hill Regional Park. We need volunteers to help with a service craft, check-in, or running games. Volunteers would need to arrive at 8:00 a.m. and would be finished by 12:00ish. If you are interested in helping, please contact Michelle Gee Rasmussen through private message on Facebook or my contact information is in LDS Tools. It will be a fun time. 😄

We have a stake food drive in June to support the UpCounty Consolidation Hub. They help provide food and supplies to thousands of families in upper Montgomery County who are struggling after the pandemic. We are SO excited to help them in their mission! The food our stake collects will be given to local families at a distribution event during youth conference. Food should be brought to the Stake Center during Stake Conference on June 19 and 20. You can sign up to donate food here: https://bit.ly/SenecaDonations. To make a cash contribution use this link: https://ci.ovationtix.com/35806/store/donations/39949. Thanks for helping support our brothers and sisters in the community!
Red Cross blood drive for June will be at the Montgomery Village chapel on the 16th. Plenty of appointments available.
