President Nelson Calls For ‘Home-centered Church,’ Including Shorter Sunday Meeting Schedule
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Saying “it is time for a home-centered church,” leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will reduce Sunday worship services for members from three hours to two in a major organizational change announced Saturday morning during the first session of the faith’s international general conference.
“As Latter-day Saints we have become accustomed to thinking of ‘church’ as something that happens in our meetinghouses, supported by what happens at home. We need an adjustment to this pattern,” President Russell M. Nelson, president of the church, said.
“It is time for a home-centered church, supported by what takes place inside our branch, ward and stake buildings.”
