On Saturday at 8 p.m., young adults (ages 18-30) of all faiths in the greater Chattanooga area and around the world are invited to participate in a virtual Face to Face event with Elder and Sister Rasband of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Elder Ronald A. Rasband is a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

The Rasbands will share insights about the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  The event will be broadcast from Goshen, Utah on a set replica of ancient Jerusalem.  Officials state, “Elder and Sister Rasband are excited to discuss how the Church the Savior established in the Holy Land has been restored to the earth today.”

“We appreciate that this important event is being broadcast to our young adults in Tennessee,” said President John Griffey of the Chattanooga Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  “We live in a time of ‘commotion,’ as the scriptures put it, and knowing that the Savior, the Creator of the world, is aware of us and there for us provides peace and stability in troubling times.  We invite all young adults – single or married – to join us for this special event where we can virtually come together and ponder what the gospel of Jesus Christ means to us.”

“How does the restored gospel of Jesus Christ help us overcome challenges?”  This is the question the Rasbands are posing.  “We hope young adults will watch this event with questions in their heart,” Elder Rasband said.  The Rasbands are encouraging young adults to post their answers on social media using #SacredGrove, or to submit questions at https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/broadcasts/face-to-face/rasband-restoration?lang=eng.
