A historical reenactment of the Mormon handcart pioneer trek west in 1856. Reenacted by the youth of the Mission Viejo, California Stake of the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints, August 13 – 15, 2015 at Riley Living History Farm in Yucaipa, CA.

Theme: In His Strength, I Can Do All Things

“It is good to look to the past to gain appreciation for the present and perspective for the future. It is good to look upon the virtues of those who have gone before, to gain strength for whatever lies ahead. It is good to reflect upon the work of those who labored so hard and gained so little in this world but out of whose dreams and early plans so well nurtured has come a great harvest of which we are the beneficiaries. Their tremendous example can be come a compelling motivation for each of us. For each of us is a pioneer in his own life, often in his own family and many of us pioneer daily in seeking to do God’s will and lift and service those around us.”
-President Gordon B. Hinckley.

Lyrics: see below. We are early-morning seminary teachers for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Seminary is a four-year religious education program for high school youth. We meet five days a week to study the Holy Scriptures.

Currently there are over 390,000 seminary students in over 170 countries in the world. Many attend classes before school. The purpose is to help youth and young adults understand and rely on the teachings and Atonement of Jesus Christ.

In many areas (including north Peoria), teachers are not paid; we prepare lessons every day in addition to holding full-time or part-time jobs, family responsibilities, and influencing our communities. Over 250 students are enrolled in north Peoria, Arizona, representing Liberty High School, Sunrise Mountain High School, Basis and Glendale Prep.

This one’s for the real cool, those Mormon kids in high school
This one’s for those freshman, those sophomores, those upperclassman

Snorin’, droolin’, it ain’t looking too pretty
If you’re showin’ up, better show on time
‘Cause class starts at 5-fiddy (5:50)

I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
We’re gonna feel the Spirit, yeah
I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
If you talk too much, you won’t hear it, yeah
I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
We testify that the Church is true
I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
Yeah, we do it all for you

Mom sent you, Hallelujah
Dad sent you, Hallelujah
Your bishop sent you, Hallelujah
Cause Seminary Funk gonna give it to ya
Seminary Funk gonna give it to ya
It’s early morning and we’re at the church, don’t believe me, just watch

Don’t believe me, just watch

Stop! Wait a minute
It’s devotional, put some feeling in it!
We’re talking ’bout Church history
The pioneers in D&C (Doctrine & Covenants)
They went from Kirtland, to Missouri, Nauvoo, then Salt Lake City
Those early Saints, they were cold and hungry
They didn’t have a “fresh jar o’ Skippy”

I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
We got candy, muffins and donuts, yeah
I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
We got cheesy jokes, that’s a bonus, yeah
I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
We got games for scripture mastery
I’m too tired. (Wake up!)
Yeah, we do it all for free

Girls, tell me Hallelujah
Guys, tell me Hallelujah
Teachers, tell me Hallelujah
Cause Seminary Funk gonna give it to ya
Seminary Funk gonna give it to ya
It’s early morning and we’re at the church, don’t believe me just watch

Don’t believe me, just watch

Oh, what do you do in the summertime
When you get to sleep in and you’re feeling sublime
It might sound great, but it won’t be the same
I got a blank space, baby, and I’ll write your name

Seminary wake you up, seminary wake you up

Chase! Jump on it
If you know your scriptures, then flaunt it
If you’re righteous, then own it
If you’re livin’ the life, then show it

Chase! Jump on it
If you know your scriptures, then flaunt it
It’s early morning and we’re at the church, don’t believe me just watch

Don’t believe me, just watch

Seminary wake you up, seminary wake you up

Shout out to the Peoria Arizona North Stake
Liberty High School and Basis, we never go out of style
Take me to church, comin’ at ya like a dark horse
Give it up one more time for your teachers in seminary!
