Newark 1st Ward Relief Society Newsletter

August 2018

Relief Society helps prepare women for the blessings of eternal life as they: 

Increase faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and His Atonement; 

Strengthen individuals, families, and homes through ordinances and covenants; 

and Work in unity to help those in need.


“All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents,and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny.”

The temple is a place of revelation, of inspiration, meditation, and peace—a place to restore ourselves, to clear our minds, to find answers to our prayers, and to enjoy the satisfaction of worship and service.
