Leaders from a Utah congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently released a new video that uses a popular Billy Joel song to welcome people back to church.

The Highland 19th Ward posted the video on YouTube on Oct. 7.

The singers perform to the tune of “The Longest Time” by Billy Joel.

The video includes the members singing reworked lyrics of the Billy Joel song, highlighting how church members can return to the pews.

Now we have some good news for you all, one sings. Church resumes each week at least this fall, another adds. Ain’t that exciting, the first chimes in again. Spread the word and start inviting, a fourth chimes in. That hasn’t happened for the longest time, the three harmonize at once.

In September, Latter-day Saint congregations across the globe returned to weekly sacrament meetings. High-risk members still have a chance to view the meeting through a broadcast, according to the Deseret News.
