Uintah Basin LDS Single Adults

LDS Standards

In keeping with the mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we ask all who attend Uintah Basin LDS Single Adult events to maintain high standards of conduct so that the Spirit of the Lord may be present. Following is a brief summary of standards of language, dress and grooming, costumes, and dances, adapted from official church publications including For the Strength of Youth.


 

Language

When you use appropriate language, you invite the Spirit to be with you. Always use the names of God and Jesus Christ with reverence and respect. Profane, vulgar, or crude language or gestures, as well as jokes about immoral actions, are offensive to the Lord and to others. Speak kindly and positively about others so you can fulfill the Lord’s commandment to love one another. Use language that uplifts, encourages, and compliments others.

 

Dress and Grooming

When you are well groomed and modestly dressed, you invite the companionship of the Spirit and can exercise a good influence on those around you.  All should avoid extremes in clothing, appearance, and hairstyle.

 

Dances

Dancing can be fun and can provide an opportunity to meet new people. When dancing, avoid full body contact with your partner. Do not use positions or moves that are suggestive of sexual behavior. Attend dances where dress, grooming, lighting, lyrics, and music contribute to a wholesome atmosphere where the Spirit of the Lord may be present.
