1. Come Follow Me: - Daily & Weekly family gospel study
2. Vanguard Scouting: - Featuring age-appropriate Family Activities, Service, Crafts, Field Trips, & Outdoor Adventures. The Benefits of Scouting are many, and there are lots of personal growth ideas to help your family pursue the new Churchwide Children & Youth Program.
3. LIFE School Curriculum: an LDS gospel based homeschool program that is built on the foundation of the scriptures, giving the child a sense of who he is and setting him on the path of discovering his divine mission. It is presented in a four year chronological rotation, integrating all areas of study to create a clear picture of the history of our world.

Vancouver Temple[]


The Vancouver British Columbia Temple is the 131st temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the first temple of the church to be built in British Columbia. The south end of the temple grounds features a grassy and beautifully wooded retreat that has been incorporated into the immaculately kept temple grounds.
