I have searched but I cannot find the XAML string that will allow my timer to run to a day and time. I'm trying to get it to countdown to our Sunday worship start time and then reset to the next Sunday.

A PM stating "I've already looked through those. It doesn't help me." refering to the link posted showing an examples script for a countdown more than 24 hrs is not very helpful to give additional help.

the vMix intrnal countdown is limited hence refering to a script. now a script has to be tailored to your specific needs. The script does eactly what you asked initially "timer to run to a day and time"

in essence when the countdown finishes one has to add the amount of days to your initial countdown data/time to start over the countdown for your second request

You dont mention if your system is running 24hrs or not . This is important as a script does not continue running when vMix is clossed as such one needs to take this into account
here is an example of adding days for the next worship days and time:
Code:
Dim enddate As DateTime = DateTime.Parse("2024-1-13 09:40:00")

Do while true
console.writeline(enddate.tostring("ddd-dd-MM-yyyy"))
sleep(1000)
enddate=enddate.AddDays(7)
loop
