Sunday Hours & Services
In addition to walk-in and live virtual help, you may schedule an appointment for individual help in-person or virtually. Groups need to schedule an appointment for group activities or instruction, whether in-person or virtual. It is best to schedule group appointments at least a couple of weeks in advance. Contact the missionaries to schedule appointments.
We have missionaries who specialize in geographic areas, languages, and other skills, such as DNA. See Hours of Specialized Help by Geography/Language for when these specialists are generally available.
