“Sunday Meeting Schedule Change,” Ensign, Nov. 1993, 110
The following announcement from the First Presidency was sent to Church leaders on August 27:
“In the spirit of simplification and with a continuing desire to strengthen all Church members, we announce a change in the Sunday meeting schedule effective January 1, 1994.
“Opening exercises for Sunday School, including the hymn practice, will no longer be held. An opening prayer will be offered in each class.
“The schedule in which Sunday School is held first has been eliminated. Only two Sunday meeting schedules are approved.
“We re-emphasize the importance of Sunday School for teaching and learning the gospel through the study of scriptures. All members are encouraged to attend their Sunday School classes each Sunday.”
