March 25, 2011 |

The Davis community is invited to join millions of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints around the world on Saturday and Sunday, April 2-3, for the church’s 180th annual general conference.

The sessions will be broadcast locally at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on both days on Davis Media Access’ Channel 15, with various inspirational programs from the church broadcast between the sessions, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Satellite broadcasts will be transmitted to meetinghouses in Woodland (850 Pioneer Ave.), where both Spanish and Mandarin translations will be available, and in Dixon (305 N. Lincoln St.), where Spanish translations will be available.

A live video stream of the conference proceedings can be viewed on the BYU channel (9403 on Dish Satellite or 232 on Comcast) or in English, Spanish and Portuguese on http://www.byu.tv or http://www.lds.org (also American Sign Language).

The Sunday morning session will be preceded by a Mormon Tabernacle Choir broadcast of Music and the Spoken Word, beginning at 8:30 a.m. The popular choir’s weekly broadcast also airs every Sunday at 6 p.m. on Davis cable Channel 15.

The main meetings of the conference are held in the massive Conference Center in downtown Salt Lake City, where more than 20,000 people listen to messages from church leaders, such as president Thomas S. Monson. Other speakers include members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and the Quorums of the Seventy, as well as women who preside over worldwide church auxiliary organizations for women, youths and children.

Along with those gathered in the Conference Center and in the overflow seating in various buildings around the historic Temple Square, millions watch on television from their homes, in church buildings via satellite or on the Internet.

More than 6,000 satellites in 85 countries worldwide receive the feed so that nearly 13 million members in various parts of the world can watch the two-day event. Conference talks are translated simultaneously into 89 languages, ranging from Croatian, Czech and Danish to Navajo, Hungarian and Swahili.
