The 189th Annual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be held Saturday and Sunday.  The Conference will be broadcast from Salt Lake City, Utah in as many as 80 languages and to over 7,400 Church buildings in more than 100 countries.  

General Conference will be streamed live on the home page of the ChurchofJesusChrist.org and may also be viewed on BYUtv, the Mormon Channel and other cable, satellite and radio channels. Or viewers may watch at the Chattanooga Stake Center located at 3067 Ooltewah Ringgold Road.  

It is expected that over 16 million members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including over 1,000 from the greater Chattanooga area, will participate.  All are welcome.  

General sessions for individuals and families will be on Saturday and Sunday at 12 and 4 p.m. A general priesthood session will be held on Saturday at 8 p.m. The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square will provide the music, along with other Church choirs and the congregation.

Messages will be delivered by The First Presidency, including the prophet, President Russell M. Nelson, and his two counselors; members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles; and other General Authorities and General Officers of the Church. 

President Nelson, who just returned from Rome, Italy, where all 15 apostles were gathered for the dedication of the Rome Italy Temple, recently tweeted, “The Lord stands at the head of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  As modern-day Apostles of Jesus Christ, the message we share today is the same that Apostles shared long ago – that God lives and Jesus is the Christ.”

Christ is Risen!  And, as prophet and senior apostle, President Nelson will reiterate this message again. Following General Conference, talks will be published online and in print.  Talks are always spiritual and inspired.  We invite everyone to join us this Easter weekend and celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
