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.
