Today’s terms are important for those raising children in Utah. My kid’s friends are very busy with church activities. Although Amy and David are never purposely excluded from any of these events, most of their friends attend them so they often feel like outsiders even amongst their peers.
CTR – Choose the Right (often seen on rings and other jewelry)
Family Home Evening - families gather, usually on Monday evening, for family-centered spiritual training and social activities. (My family watches “24” together, does that count?)
Mutual – The Church's auxiliary organization for youth ages twelve through eighteen
Primary - The auxiliary organization in the Church for children from ages eighteen months through eleven years.
Seminary – Weekday religious instruction for secondary school students (In Utah public schools build time for this into the regular school schedule - a pet peeve of mine)
Stake Dance – church sponsored dances for middle school kids
Sunbeam - three year old primary level (thanks Rachel)
Young Men’s/ Young Women’s - The instruction and activity program in the Church for young men or women ages twelve to eighteen
