We loved the Chicago temple. I visited it solo and then went back with a friend who was working the first time I went. Very interesting tour and beautiful church. The temple in the sky is superb. Not to be missed!

I attended the early morning worship service while in town in vacation. I was welcomed and felt very comfortable joining the congregation in their beautiful sanctuary. The music and the sermon both blessed me. It was a great way to start my week!

Beautiful church, open to the public; lots of carved wood and stained glass (with some scenes of Chicago) and a cross the KKK had burned, and they transformed it into an art piece. At 2 PM small groups can go in the elevator up to...More
