On June 4, 2024, the First Presidency sent a letter to Church leaders reaffirming the guidelines for safety in Church activities.

Ward and stake leaders, along with supporting councils and committees, are responsible to oversee the planning of Church-sponsored activities. This planning includes the temporal and spiritual safety of participants. Leaders should use good judgment and approve activities that are well planned and follow the Church safety guidelines included with the letter and at Stake, ward, and youth councils should discuss guidelines and practices that ensure the safety of all participants and protect the Church and its volunteers.

Read the letter and attached safety guidelines.

Church activities unite members as “fellowcitizens” as described in Ephesians 2:19. In addition to providing education, entertainment, and opportunities for service, activities should be designed to help members build faith in Jesus Christ. They should also provide opportunities for personal growth, strengthen individuals and families, and help members participate in God’s work of salvation and exaltation.
