Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the broadcast venue has been changed for the Face to Face event on Sept. 13 with Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Melanie Rasband.

The Church announced on Aug. 10 the broadcast will originate from the Church’s Motion Picture Studio Campus in Goshen, Utah, instead of the previously announced Sacred Grove in Palmyra, New York.

In a social media post on June 24, Elder Rasband invited young adults to participate in the Face to Face event, which will focus on the bicentennial proclamation announced during April 2020 general conference.

“My dear young adult friends, like you, I have felt the effects of our world’s difficult circumstances during the last few months,” he wrote. “In these difficult times — and always — the answer is our Savior, Jesus Christ. His atoning sacrifice enables us to access His power, which can give us strength to endure.

“I also know that the timing of President Russell M. Nelson’s announcement of ‘The Restoration of the Fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ: A Bicentennial Proclamation to the World’ and the events of our world are not a coincidence. If you have not yet taken the opportunity to study this proclamation, I encourage you to study it.”
