SALT LAKE CITY – In a story April 4, 2020, about The Church of Jesus Christs of Latter-day Saints’ conference, The Associated Press erroneously reported that church membership increased in 2019 for the first time since 2012. It should have said the annual rate of membership growth increased in 2019 for the first time since 2012.

FILE - In this Oct. 5, 2019, file photo, people listen during The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' twice-annual church conference, in Salt Lake City. For the first time in more than 60 years, top leaders from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will deliver speeches at the faith's signature conference this weekend without anyone watching in the latest illustration of how the coronavirus pandemic is altering worship practices around the world. The twice-yearly conference normally brings some 100,000 people to the church conference center in Salt Lake City to watch five sessions over two days. This event, though, will be only a virtual one.
