Wow! Some chapel.35,000 square feet and a steeple on top of a three story
facade.It would seem the Church is trying to make a statement here without
building another temple.What gives?
This should bring tons of converts!
I served my mission in New Jersey a few decades ago when the saints in Newark
met on one of the floors of an office building in the Ironbound sector of
Newark. I am happy that the saints in that area are increasing in strength and
numbers enough to warrant a new building. It is a very tough area to live in.
The saints who stick to the gospel there are as faithful as they come. I'm
happy for them.
>>>Two Mormon congregations were founded 175 years ago in Monmouth
County, and today there are now five chapels in New Jersey with 32,744
members.I count 47 meetinghouses in New Jersey and not 5. Also 61
congregations (37 wards and 24 branches) organized in 5 stakes and 1 district.
