Looking for a Mormon church or temple? Currently there are 2 Mormon Temples in Colorado and over 100 chapels or meetinghouses.
What Is the Difference Between a Temple and a Meetinghouse?
The temple is a beautiful, serene place, and it is unique among buildings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Church members gather in chapels or meetinghouses for weekly worship services. There, they enrich their lives by studying the gospel; they minister and serve among each other.
But they attend the temple in part to bless and serve those who’ve gone before them. Through the power of the priesthood, members are married for time and eternity and perform proxy baptisms for their ancestors who died without enjoying the blessings of this saving ordinance.
