If you’re interested in seeing what Mormons are really like, watching General Conference is a great way to do that. You can see what the church is like and worship with us from your own home.
The General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a semiannual church-wide event. The conference is held in Salt Lake City in the magnificent Conference Center, but it is broadcast all over the world in 197 countries and 94 different languages. During General conference, Church leaders speak to the worldwide church as a whole giving instruction and inspiration.
I love General Conference weekend. Usually, I watch the conference from home via live streaming online. We get together with family, make yummy meals, do crafts with the kids and soak up a lot of wonderful messages. The speakers are the General Authorities of the Church. Their messages are always moving, soul-expanding, and thought-provoking. I always feel inspired after conference to be a little kinder, more hard-working, more serviceable, more loving. It puts life in perspective and helps me to stop sweating the small stuff.
The next General Conference is Saturday April 6th-7th. The Conference is held in four sessions, two on Saturday, and two on Sunday. The schedule is as follows: Sat April 6th, 10:00AM-12:00PM, 2:00PM-4:00PM (MDT) and Sunday April 7th, 10:00AM-12:00PM, 2:00PM-4:00PM (MDT). General Conference is usually held in early April and October.
