“In the News,” Ensign, Dec. 2010, 78
It’s difficult for many of the 14 million members of the Church to travel to one of 130 retail stores to obtain Church materials. So Church Distribution Services is reversing the process. A new online store is now bringing materials to the members.
Store.lds.org makes it easy to order gospel study materials, music, garments, temple clothing, and other materials. Materials ship free of cost around the world.
Visitors to the site identify their country. As online stores specific to each country become available, they will show the available products in that country’s primary language and with all prices listed in local currency.
The site replaces ldscatalog.com and launched initially in English, Spanish, and Russian. Other languages will be available in coming months, including Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese, in that order.
A new set of four DVDs assists in the study of the Doctrine and Covenants and Church history.
The set contains interactive charts, quotations from latter-day prophets and apostles, paintings, and learning activities. It features videos such as Legacy, Mountain of the Lord, and Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration, which has been showing in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building since December 2005.
Doctrine and Covenants and Church History Visual Resources DVDs is available in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. Order online at store.lds.org or by calling 1-800-537-5971. Check with local distribution centers for availability.
