Orem Park Stake Self-Reliance Groups

In September 2020, the Orem Park Stake will start two new Self-Reliance courses. As your stake presidency, we invite you to prayerfully consider participating in one of these groups. Many blessings have come to our stake members who have participated in Self-Reliance classes, and we are confident that blessings will come to you, too.
