Line of Priesthood Authority


Did you know that you can request your Priesthood Line of Authority? 

Well, you can.

The Church has a website that you can go to to request your Line of Authority.

 If you have questions, you can call  1-800-453-3860, ext. 2-3500 or send a fax to 1-801-240-6816 or send an email to the link at the bottom of this column.  


"A Priesthood Line of Authority shows who ordained an individual and who in turn ordained them and so on back to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thousands of ordinances are performed weekly throughout the LDS Church. These ordinances are  performed by priesthood holders who have been properly ordained and properly authorized by one who has the keys to authorize the ordinance under the direction of the prophet and the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Therefore, a priesthood authority line traces a priesthood holder's authority from the person ordaining him back to the Lord Jesus Christ (D&C 42:11)."

The LDS Bishops' Storehouse


As a member, of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we are commanded to gave a years supply of food and commodities on had for emergencies and hard times.

Here you can buy in bulk and other sizes of these food items.

The Bishops' Storehouse is a place where anyone can go to purchase basic food commodities.

The Bishops' Storehouse is also a place  where people can go to get food and basic commodities for their family when they are in a time of need. First they have to request it from a Bishop which will call the Relief Society President who will sit down with the family and see what they have on hand and write a food order of the items they will need to get through the next week or so. Then it goes back to the Bishop for review and he has to approve it before they family receives the order.
