With Christmas Eve falling on Sunday in the upcoming holiday season, the First Presidency has announced changes to the Sunday meeting schedule for worship services that day.
For Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, the First Presidency said Church services and administrative and council meetings on that day should be limited to sacrament meeting in each ward and branch.
The adjustment was released in an Oct. 11 First Presidency letter distributed to general authorities and general officers, Area Seventies; stake, district and mission presidents; bishops; and branch presidents. The letter was signed by President Russell M. Nelson and his counselors, President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring.
Stake presidents and district presidents, in consultation with their bishops and branch presidents, have the option to adjust sacrament meeting start times to best accommodate local leaders and members, the letter states.
