Youth are invited to participate in the Church’s next live Face to Face event featuring cast members of Studio C on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. MDT.

Studio C, a popular sketch comedy and original series on BYUtv and YouTube, stars faithful members of the Church who strive to produce clean, family-friendly comedy for a worldwide audience. At the Face to Face event on October 19, Studio C cast members plan to share their testimonies of the Savior, plus offer ideas for having fun while maintaining gospel standards.

“People often associate Studio C with being funny, but it’s much more than that for me,” said cast member Whitney Call. “These people are my family and friends. And we all share the same faith. I’m looking forward to sharing all of that during Face to Face and relating to the challenges that our youth face today in any way that might help them in this critical time in life.”

Youth will have the opportunity to ask questions but are encouraged to come to the event prepared to discuss what it means to them personally to press forward with steadfastness in Christ as they develop their unique talents and gifts.

“I love performing because it’s a way that you can be someone else for a moment, said cast member James Perry, “but I’m really looking forward to being myself and answering questions as James and as a cast of real people who have had real challenges and learned real lessons along the way.”

How to participate

Parents and ward or branch leaders can use this event as a family or Mutual night activity. Youth are encouraged to invite their friends to participate with them.

A recording of the English-only broadcast will be archived for later viewing. Recordings of all Face to Face events can be viewed at face2face.ChurchofJesusChrist.org and are appropriate for a variety of personal, family, and Church settings.

Face to Face events

The October 2016 Face to Face is the seventh such event sponsored by the Church. Face to Face events feature special LDS guests answering real questions sent in by youth and are viewed by tens of thousands worldwide during and after the broadcasts.

Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Young Women General President Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, and Young Men General President Brother Stephen W. Owen kicked off 2016 with a Face to Face event focused on the year’s Mutual theme, “Press Forward with Steadfastness in Christ.” During that event, Elder Rasband encouraged youth to remember that “Jesus Christ is at the heart of the answer to every one of your questions.”

Last fall, the musical group the Piano Guys taught youth to put their faith first and rely on the Savior.

Earlier in 2015 during Face to Face with Elder and Sister Bednar, youth heard from Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Susan Bednar, about getting answers to their personal questions.

Past events featured David Archuleta and Lindsey Stirling, both popular musicians and returned missionaries, who answered questions about preparing for missions, sharing the gospel, maintaining standards, and increasing self-worth.
