The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the greater Chattanooga area invites everyone to gather virtually to worship Jesus this Easter. The Church will hold a worldwide general conference on Saturday, April 3 – Easter Sunday, April 4, filled with “Christ-centered messages and music.”
President Russell M. Nelson said, “A proclamation given by angelic messengers near an empty tomb – ‘He is not here: for He is risen’ (Matthew 28:6) – declared that the Lord Jesus Christ lives. Jesus overcame death through His Atonement and Resurrection. When He suffered for our sins and weaknesses, died on the cross, and rose again, the Savior rewrote humanity’s story.”
“Because of Him,” President Nelson continued, “we do not have to deal with our frailties, sins, and fears alone. Because of Him, death is not the end. Resurrection will come to all who have ever lived. Because of Him, families can be together forever. Because of Him, guilt becomes peace, regret becomes relief, and despair becomes hope. We are given second chances, clean slates, and new beginnings. Because of Jesus Christ, we celebrate Easter. And Easter is all about peace and hope” (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/inspiration/this-easter-find-peace-in-jesus-christ?lang=eng).
“We, too, declare this glorious message of Easter,” local leaders said. “Please join with us for General Conference as we worship and praise the Lord. General Conference sessions will be broadcast at 12:00pm and 4:00pm EST on Saturday and Sunday (April 3-4, 2021) at ChurchofJesusChrist.org, BYUtv, YouTube,broadcasts.ChurchofJesusChrist.org, cable and other radio and tv channels.
According to local leaders, President Nelson has also extended a special invitation. “After all that Jesus Christ did for you, I invite you to do something this week to follow Christ’s teachings,” he said. “You might make your prayers more earnest. You could forgive someone or help a friend in need. You can start today on a new spiritual quest.” Whatever you choose, this Easter, praise Jesus for all “He brings to us.”
