LDS Chapel Planned in Florida

PEMBROKE PINES, FLORIDA -- A planned LDS Chapel in Pembroke Pines, Florida was the subject of a news article in the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel. The building is meant to address growth in the Fort Lauderdale Stake, which currently has 10 wards.

Teh Pembroke Pines Ward has about 300 members who currently attend church in nearby Plantation, Florida. The new building will be built on a plot at Pines Boulevard and US 27. The Church has applied for the necessary permits to begin construction. Fort Lauderdale Stake President George Holden explained that the stake growth basically made the building necessary. "The chapel's basically going up because the congregations are growing and the buildings that we currently have aren't adequate," Holden said.

The Sun-Sentinel article makes clear the distinction between an LDS chapel and an LDS Temple. It also gives basic information on the LDS Church and its beliefs.
