Hilarious Sacrament Stories Part III

Sacrament Meeting
As this topic is starting to become a tradition on our page (we might just very well have to create an entire website to these stories, we are sharing some of the most humorous, Sacrament meeting stories that all of you have shared with us. Again, if you have any Sacrament meeting stories that you would like to share, feel free to comment below.


Undo, undo

An infant boy was about to be blessed by his grandfather. The older gentleman started the blessing, but instead of the words to a baby blessing he began conferring the Aaronic Priesthood on the baby. He realized his mistake, stopped, and said, “Undo, undo.” Then he gave the baby his blessing. Now when we do something wrong, we sometimes stop and say, “Undo, undo.”

To Eat it?!

My three year old son asked me what was going on, and I replied that they were about to bless a baby. His eyes got big and, as loud as he could, he asked with horror, “TO EAT IT?!”

Please Forgive My Mom

During the primary program at church, my 4 year old brother was giving the prayer and my mom was standing next to him to help him in case he needed it even though he could do the prayer mostly on his own. He kind of stumbled during the last part of the prayer and my mom leaned in to help him and he yelled over the pulpit “Mom! I’m talking to Heavenly Father, stop talking!” and followed up by saying “Heavenly Father, please forgive my mom, she was only trying to help.”

Young Women passing the Sacrament

When I was a missionary I served in small area in Korea. My companion and I were asked to open a brand new area and when we showed up to Sacrament for the first time we noticed that the young women were blessing and passing the Sacrament. We obviously talked with the branch president about the fact that they can’t pass the Sacrament because they didn’t hold the priesthood. Since it was an extremely small ward, we finished blessing and passing the Sacrament.

The next week we were running late and got there at the end of the administration of the Sacrament and noticed that the young women were passing the Sacrament again. We talked with the branch president and he said “I know, I remember that you Elders said that they couldn’t pass the Sacrament last week because they didn’t have the priesthood, so I gave it to them after the meeting.”

God, Is That You?

Our youngest son has never been able to whisper. Even at 13, he is practically still talking as he tries to whisper; when he was younger, it was even worse. One Sunday – he had to have been just a little more than 3 – one of the priests knelt behind the sacrament table and started to bless the bread. My son looked up to the podium to see who was speaking. Upon seeing no one, he very loudly “whispered,” “I hear GOD!”


My mother told me the story of one Sunday she will never forget. My mother had 6 children in 8 years, I am the fourth. When my two little brothers were young, they are 15 months apart, my mother at the time was weaning my youngest brother off nursing. One Sunday when she thought we were finally being quiet, she was really enjoying the speaker and not paying much attention to what the kids were doing because we were quiet. Then she started getting weird looks from the Bishop. Not realizing they were directed at her, she kept listening intently to the speaker. She was really enjoying sacrament meeting, which she had not been able to do for a long while. Suddenly, the bishops looks turned into embarrassment and his hand went up in front of his eyes and he looked the other way. interested in what was going on, my mother started looking around casually to see what the Bishop was trying not to look at. Catching a glimpse of something swinging around in circles, she turned and saw at the end of the bench, the older of my two younger brothers had pulled a tampon out of her purse, opened it, and was swinging it around like a helicopter. That was not the worst of it, while his brother was playing helicopter with her tampons, my youngest brother, wanting to nurse, and unbeknownst to my mother, pulled my mother’s shirt down (it had an very stretchy elastic neck line) and had left her completely exposed to everyone on the stand.

In the Backrow

I was once a Baptist preacher, and now I am the Elder’s Quorum Instructor and Branch Missionary.
Well, it took a little while to understand the differences in how things go, which was evident immediately.

The Branch President asked me to give the opening prayer. When it was time, I stood up and gave the prayer, then sat down. After the meeting, several people commented on enjoying my prayer, and one even said “I like your style”. I was quite confused, as all I did was ask the Spirit to be with us so we can learn what we need to learn. Sounded pretty basic to me.

Then the Branch President approached me and said “Brother Beyer, that was a good opening prayer. In the future, when you are asked to give a prayer during Sacrament, please do so from the podium with the microphone, not by talking really loud from the back row.”

The Flying Sacrament Tray

My mom felt her hair clip falling just as the sacrament tray was being passed in front of her. Instinctively, she flung her hand upwards to grab the clip and hit the tray so hard it flew over her head and into the aisle behind her, spraying its contents everywhere.

Check that…What I meant was…

During a drought in Utah, we were all asked to pray for rain. An older man was offering the benediction and prayed, “We are suffering and need rain. We know from the story of Noah that Thou hast the power to bring the needed rain. (Pause.) Actually we don’t need quite that much, just a whole lot more than what we have been getting.”

Do You Want Fries With That?

Years ago, when my grandchildren were small and spent too much time at McDonald’s, they were in the chapel awaiting the start of sacrament meeting when the bishop turned on the microphone. When my grandson heard the click, he stood and ordered nuggets and fries.

Naked boy

I was listening to the speakers talk in Sacrament meeting when I noticed the congregation starting to chuckle. I looked to see what they were laughing at and immediately saw my two year old son swinging his shirt and pants that he took off (standing only in his diaper). We made eye contact and he bolted out to the foyer. Yeah, I didn’t come back into Sacrament meeting, I was just too embarrassed.

Unity in Church Leadership

From a Single’s Ward…One of my friends gave a talk. She had been told that the third speaker backed out and to go ahead and add a little more time into hers. That could have gone unsaid, as she likes to wax philosophical from time to time. As she droned on (leaving the other speaker only 10 minutes), one by one, the bishop, the first counselor, the second counselor, the 2nd counselor in the stake presidency and our stake high council rep (who were visiting) all bowed their heads for their afternoon nap.

The sister speaking said that one of the ways to overcome adversity included talking to someone “who has been there before,” which included “any of the men behind me.” At that mention, all 5 of their heads popped up in unison. Everyone in the congregation was trying not to chuckle. We all saw it. The unity in their reaction was comedic genius. Definitely not a boring sacrament meeting after that. Even the high councilman struggled keeping a straight face. I’m pretty sure he recognized what the congregation was giggly about, since he was sitting in a pew behind the other 4.

Uh oh

One sacrament meeting there was a young kid a few rows in front of us who was playing with a toy on the edge of the pew. When he accidentally dropped it he very loudly exclaimed, “uh oh!” The kid seemed to like the sound and started to repeat it, “uh oh!, uh oh!, uh oh!” At which point small kids nearby decided to try it out. Within seconds almost all the little kids in the congregation joined in, “Uh oh!, uh oh!” The bishop was trying his best to hold in his laughter and I remember seeing one mom try to hold her hands over her two kids mouths, but they would slip away just enough to echo another “Uh oh!”

I don’t know this man

I had to go early to Church with my 9 and 7 yo’s in tow. My husband was to follow in car #2 after getting the toddler ready. She was then around two, but the SIZE of a four yo. We had great seats about half way up to the front of the chapel. Well after the meeting had started, my 6 foot 4 in. husband came parading up the aisle to join us, the 2yo sitting on the top of his shoulders with her wide sash ribbons hanging down, swaying about, puffy dress tucked up funny, diaper showing, etc. Her long curly hair was matted and knotted. She had peanut butter tracks on both cheeks, the u-shaped crust of what was left of the sandwich still in hand and being nibbled on. In her other hand was her “toy of choice” for Sacrament meeting: a four foot, hot pink, mostly inflated FLAMINGO (from a recent zoo trip), its long neck and 20 in. long legs flopping wildly about with each stride he took. I was absolutely and thoroughly mortified! They were, however completely silent. Do you think anyone noticed? 🙂

  1. In Sacrament meeting i was trying to keep my kids quiet by showing pictures and telling stories of Jesus to my 4 year old daughter. She then turned around and starting retelling one of the stories to her little 2 year old brother. The picture was of Jesus healing the 10 lepers. i then heard her telling her brother that this was a picture of “Jesus and the 10 Leprechauns”. I was so hard to not burst out laughing after that.

  2. As a mom of 5 young kids, I have had numerous embarrassing moments in Sacrament Meeting. Like the flying goldfish, when my young son threw goldfish crackers high into the air and they rained down on everyone within 3-5 rows of us. I thought that was the crowning moment of our circus act we perform each Sunday until a few weeks ago when my adventurous 2 year old daughter got away from me by climbing under the benches in front of us. Sacrament meeting was nearly done, the closing hymn was ending and the closing prayer about to be started. I watched for her to see where she would pop up. The prayer started but I didn’t close my eyes, I was still watching for my daughter. Then I saw her climbing the stairs at the front of the chapel and heading straight for the piano. I immediately whispered to my oldest son, who was sitting at the end of the bench, to go get her but he didn’t make it before she climbed up on the piano bench and began pounding on the piano during the closing prayer. Ten seconds later, that felt like eternity, my son reached her and grabbed her off the piano bench and she then began to squeal and throw a fit. Truly an embarrassing moment for me but everyone got a good laugh that day at church.

  3. My dad used to be the Bishop of a ward we lived in in Pennsylvania. My parents had moved away for a few years and had come back for a visit. Of course, my Dad got up to bear his testimony. My 5 year old son had been sitting on his lap, so my father took him up with him. About 2/3 of the way through his testimony, without my father seeing, my son started running around on the stand, through the aisles on the stand, up around the piano etc. My father finished up and turned to get my son. He was obviously surprised he wasn’t still standing right there, and the congregation had a little chuckle, because we all knew exactly where he was. Once my father walked around the row to get him, my son obviously, with the laughter he heard, thought this was some type of game. It took about two minutes (which felt like eternity) for someone to capture him. I was stuck in the middle of the row, and just wanted to slide under the bench for the rest of sacrament meeting. Oh, the days……

  4. Our teenage son received a Star Trek tie pin for Christmas one year. Imagine how hard it was not to crack up when he folded his arms for the opening prayer and we heard “Bridge here. Status report”.

  5. I’m a young women in a small ward with two little siblings, 8 and 6. During the primary program, a boy about nine or ten was saying his little part up at the podium. “I like to watch General Conference with my family…” quietly he then says, “…no I don’t.” The congregation had a good laugh out of that.

    This isn’t about sacrament meeting but it’s just as good. The year before my little sister turned eight, my parents and her teachers had been telling her about baptism and what will happen in the font. Our mistake was telling her stories of people having to be repeatedly dunked because they would float and not go under. By her baptism day she had a mild anxiety/fear of getting dunked which didn’t improve when she got into the font. She was hesitant about leaving the stairs and railing and was groaning(which she does when she’s scared). It took a good few minutes to get her baptized and my grandma had to explain to everyone there that we did not force her to be baptized, she was just scared. Everyone left the viewing area with sympathy and amused smiles. Hers was definitely the most interesting baptism of the year.

    1. My brother (a terrible hydrophobe) was difficult to get under the first time, and then he had to do it again because his leg came up! Biggest freakout ever!

  6. Not in sacrament meeting but in the temple–my mom worked as an officiator. But in her old age she had the problem of falling asleep if she sat for very long. She would often have to be woken up by someone with everyone waiting for her. She decided to try to fix this problem by sucking on a hot fire ball to keep her awake. Unfortunately it completely backfired on her when she fell asleep anyway with the fire ball in her mouth but had also drooled bright red fire ball juice all over her white dress! Haha was she ever mortified when she got the usual nudge to wake up!

  7. My 5 year old nephew has been really diligent in praying for “missionary opportunities” and makes sure that everyone knows when you forgot to pray about “missionary opportunities”. After the sacarament was blessed one Sunday, everyone heard him loudly say ” and missionary opportunities!”

  8. One Sacrament Meeting a two year old was really being a problem so his father picked him up to carry him out of the chapel. On the way out the little boy fearfully yelled to the congregation, “Save me, please save me!”

  9. Some years ago, when I was in young women’s, a young couple with two toddlers were sitting in front of my family and eye. I regularly babysat these kids, and was doing my best not to engage them as they were acting like toddlers and I could tell their parents were trying to keep them quite.
    The little girl, maybe two years old, was being especially loud and her dad was trying to get her to stop crawling all over the pew, but she was persistent and was pulling away from him, trying to crawl over the back of the pew.
    Suddenly, her dad lost hold of her dress and she slammed forward into the unupholstered top of the pew. The sound of her forehead hitting the wood was deafening in the otherwise pretty quiet chapel, but we all knew what was coming next. Her dad was lightening fast and he was able to whisk her out if the chapel before she got a scream out.
    There were moms out in the foyer, of course, and one of them came back into the chapel, walking briskly, and whispered to the little girl’s mom, who nodded and collected her belongings. The other mom stayed with the little boy.
    We did see them all after the block. Little girl with stitches and a pink Barbie Band-Aid on her forehead, and a dad who looked like he’d been in a war with washed blood on his white dress shirt, and a mom with a lot of relief on her face that her baby didn’t have a concussion.

  10. Once I tried to save a baby from crawling away from his family, so I picked him up and (because I’m short) stood up to hand lift him over the seat in front of me and hand him to his dad. His foot got caught under my skirt but I didn’t notice, and when I lifted him up my skirt also went up. ;-;

  11. We were visiting my cousins and my older cousin kept on telling my little brother that they were buddies. My cousin is getting ready to bless the sacrament when my little brother yelled “hi buddy” and starting waving his arms. He didn’t stop until my cousin waved back.

  12. Years ago while serving in the bishopric our bishop opened sacrament meeting and when he finished with the announcements turned to sit down. When he sits down he starts about a foot above the chair and basically drops….there’s no stopping him. This particular Sunday as his downward momentum was beyond the point of return and gravity took over, his pocket caught on the arm of the chair. It totally ripped out the back end of his suit pants!
    I had to finish conducting for him!

  13. I made the e mistake of allowing my then 4yr old to bring an apple sauce package (the squeezable ones you suck up) to sacrament. When she was done suckling on it she popped it out of her mouth and residual applesauce flung onto the back and into the hair of the sister in front of me. I was mortified, but could not leave her with applesauce in her hair. I politely tapped her shoulder and said she had something in her hair and asked if I could get it out for her. Needless to say applesauce has never been brought to sacrament again

  14. Before starting the sacrament, we are always advised to turn off our phones or put it on silent mode. But during the sacrament, Our second counselor’s phone started ringing. It was hilarious because his ring tone was like of those in action scenes in movies, “You’re surrounded! Surrender or we will shoot! *loud gunshots*”

  15. My aunt was a favourite with my younger brother but she had also been called to a primary class and so sometimes left sacrament early to prepare. One time, my brother was not happy with this and insisted on screaming his name for her at the top of his lungs, only because of his speech problem it sounded like he was actually screaming a swear word at the top of his lungs… We just tried to pretend we didn’t know him.

  16. Someone’s phone went off playing Justin Beiber’s “Baby” song really loud during the meeting and we all found out it was the stake representative.

  17. In my Aunt’s ward the speaker was talking about Satan and the ways that he tries to tempt us to do evil. A young boy stood up in the middle of the aisle, raised one arm in the air, and shouted “I say we kill the beast!” Laughter from the crowd followed.

  18. My husband was born without a sense of smell. not a big deal until he developed a medical condition that caused extreme flatulence, yes he could clear a room in 3 seconds. Unfortunatly because he couldnt smell it he wouldnt try to hold it. he would let one and the row behind us would start coughing and covering their faces. I would sit there red faced and try to pretend I didn’t notice
