9:30-10:00 am History of The Saints
What is the Doctrine and Covenants, how did it come to be, and what is its role in the Lord’s work? This is the timely and important subject of this special presentation of History of the Saints. President Benson said in April 1987 “God bless us all to use all the scriptures, but in particular the instrument He designed to bring us to Chris—the Book of Mormon, the keystone of our religion—along with its companion volume, the capstone, the Doctrine and Covenants, the instrument to bring us to Christ’s kingdom, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”
10:00-12:00 pm GENERAL CONFERENCE SATURDAY MORNING SESSION
The potential audience for the Church’s April 2021 general conference will be larger than any previous Church gathering. At least one session of the conference will be broadcast on stations in more than 70 countries, many for the first time.

4:00-4:30 pm Onward Ever Onward: A New Era in Missionary Work
It’s an unprecedented day for missionary work in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The quick on-set of the pandemic generated the challenge of navigating thousands of people back to their homelands. Never before has the church had to negotiate the mass transit of so many missionaries so quickly. Decisions then had to be made on how to get missionaries back into the field. Along the way a new era in missionary work has been born. Social media is now playing a key role in the miracle of conversion and missionaries are busier than ever. Incredible stories are emerging throughout the world as people are finding the need to turn to God in these troubling times. In this documentary we talk to those who have been directly affected by the changes. Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles shares insight about what is happening and how it is impacting the missionary efforts worldwide.
4:30-5:00 pm Saved by Shop Class
High School shop class might seem an unlikely place to find healing and purpose but that is precisely the place some students feel most at home. Hear stories from men and women who had personal struggles while in high school, but whose life-course changed thanks to an understanding teacher and the thrill of working with their own hands. For them shop class became a place of belonging and refuge. Even decades later the lasting impact of their experiences stays with them still.

9:00-9:30 am President Nelson: The First Three Years
Since members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sustained President Russell M. Nelson as the Church’s 17th president he has logged well over 115,000 miles — traveling to six continents, 32 nations and territories and 49 cities. He has met with members in large and small settings — often addressing them in their own language — and with world leaders. He has also reached out to victims of crime, comforted those grieving and acknowledged dozens of children. The goal of the 95-year-old world religious leader is “to build bridges of cooperation rather than walls of segregation.” It is the kind of outreach that touches entire congregations and individuals at the same time. It is a ministry that inspires the masses to look forward.

10:00-12:00 pm GENERAL CONFERENCE SUNDAY MORNING SESSION

12:30-1:00 pm United in Prayer
Amid the global coronavirus pandemic people of many faiths are called upon to come together in prayer and fasting. Millions responded. And now with the help of the internet faithful believers from throughout the world share common ground in uniting in prayer. People are finding ways to connect with one another in new and unique ways despite the difficulties happening around them. Many say the power of these online connections and prayers is palatable and brings both hope and comfort. We follow the stories of some of these people as they share their experiences about the calming influence of these connections.
1:00-1:30 pm For the Love of Food
Food fuels our body…but it also feeds our soul. It’s the unspoken truth that true “foodies” have always known: the real power of a good recipe goes beyond its ingredients. Food can serve, heal, connect, bind, and uplift human hearts. Food is service. Food is love. See how women are using food to express their faith, and share their beliefs, in unique ways…to take “comfort food” beyond the kitchen, and share it with people around the world.
Food not only fuels our body, but it also feeds our soul – and the real power of a good recipe goes beyond its ingredients.
