Open House at LDS
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, known to many by the nickname The Mormons, is hosting an open house on April 18 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at their Sunland building at 7955 Hillrose St.
The open house will introduce the faith and display what Mormons are doing locally and internationally to feed God’s sheep as directed biblically. Displays will be presented on various general church programs including genealogy and family history, emergency preparedness and humanitarian outreach, scouting and other youth programs, the international women’s organization, and addiction recovery. The church’s new Christ-centered video, “Because He Lives” will also be presented.
Members of local LDS Spanish, Tagalog, and Armenian-speaking congregations will be present to introduce topics to non-English speaking neighbors.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
All are welcome!
