General Conference Of Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints To Be Digitally Broadcast This Weekend

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

The 190th General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – which will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the First Vision and the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in these latter days – will be digitally broadcast this weekend for local Chattanoogans and everyone throughout the world, local church leader Phil Smartt said.  

 

As the Church continues to do all it can to curb the spread of COVID-19, the public will not be admitted to the conference center in Salt Lake City or in stake centers or meetinghouses in the U.S., Canada or elsewhere.  As the Church states, “Each session (of General Conference) will be broadcast from a small auditorium on Temple Square.  The First Presidency will preside and conduct those in-person sessions, and only those who have been invited to speak or pray will attend.  The music for the conference has been prerecorded.”

 

“With Tennessee experiencing a rise in COVID-19, we are especially grateful for these precautions,” said President John Griffey of the Chattanooga Stake.  “We are also thankful that President Nelson called for the world to join him for a day of fast and prayer for relief from COVID-19 (see more at https://www.chattanoogan.com/2020/3/27/406628/Worldwide-Fast-Is-Sunday-In-Response.aspx).  Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the greater Chattanooga area participated in the fast held on Sunday, March 29, 2020, as did tens of thousands of congregations across the globe, including members and friends alike.”

 

“We continue to unite our faith with everyone, everywhere for and in behalf of all those affected by this pandemic, including our healthcare workers who are on the frontline caring for patients with COVID-19,” President Griffey said.  “At this time, especially, we also invite everyone to participate in General Conference at broadcasts.ChurchofJesusChrist.org, BYUtv, YouTube, or by radio, cable and other digital channels.” 

 

The First Presidency, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and other General Authorities and General Officers of the Church “will deliver messages of truth, hope and inspiration.” 

 

Four general sessions for individuals and families will be broadcast on Saturday and Sunday at noon and 4 p.m.

Eastern time.  A special session will also be held on Saturday at 8 p.m. Eastern time for members, friends and youth.
