내가 눈에 띌까?
It often depends on the size of the congregation, sometimes the congregations are so large that no one might not even notice that you are a visitor. In other congregations, there are so few people that they know each other very personally and would be thrilled to greet you.
어느 쪽이든 걱정하지 마십시오. 당신이 새로운 사람이라는 사실을 누군가에게 알리십시오. 회중은 당신을 지원하고 도와줄 것입니다.
많은 성도님들이 혼자 오시는데 처음으로 혼자가 걱정되시면 저희 지역 선교사들에게 연락을 주시면 됩니다. 그들은 당신이 회중을 알게 되도록 기꺼이 도와줄 것이며 집회 중에 기꺼이 당신과 동행할 것입니다.
무엇을 입을 지?
In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it is common to wear formal attire in symbolic reverence and respect to God. Members commonly go to church in formal attire, but business casual is also welcomed. The point is just to try to look nice. No one will be denied entry to church due to their clothing though.
다음은 남성과 여성을 위한 권장 사항입니다.
Men often sport a button-up white-sleeved shirt spotted by a nice tie and slacks.
교회의 여성들은 종종 멋진 블라우스와 치마를 입고 오거나 단정한 드레스를 입고 옵니다.
이것은 흔한 일이지만 이 옷이 없더라도 걱정하지 마십시오. 편안한 옷을 입고 오십시오. 무엇보다 경험하는 동안 집과 같은 편안함을 느끼기를 바랍니다.
Church is divided into two parts, the Sacrament meeting and Sunday School. Each of these meetings lasts about one hour, and it is also possible to leave between meetings. So expect from around 1 to 2 hours, but it also is a cultural practice to socialize after the meetings, so be sure to get out there and make some new friends.
회의에서 무슨 일이?
Church is divided into two meetings, Sacrament meeting, and Sunday School:
Within the Sacrament meeting, a prayer is said, hymns are sung, and talks are given. The most important part of this meeting is the sacrament. Two priests will break and bless bread and water, and they will be served to the congregation. This act is a reminder to members of the Church of the promises they made with God, “that they do always remember him, that they may have his Spirit to be with them.” Visitors are welcome to take the sacrament.
After Sacrament meeting the congregation has a 5-minute break to chat and head to their next class at Sunday school
주일학교는 생각만큼 학문적이지 않습니다. 나이와 성별에 따라 그룹이 나뉘고 경험을 공유하고 함께 하나님에 대해 더 많이 배우려고 노력하는 곳입니다. 이 모임은 실제 강의라기보다 그룹 토론에 가깝습니다. 이 모임의 목적은 모든 사람이 그리스도에 대해 더 많이 배우고 더 가까이 갈 수 있도록 돕는 것입니다.
돈을 기부해야 합니까?
No, our Church is service-based and we believe that the word of God is free for all. Members frequently donate money in private to provide for the church service, so there is no reason to worry about things!
