Mormon Monday: What's the difference between a chapel and a temple?


Whenever I'm explaining my religion to my friends, I am always asked this question. Many people believe we go worship in the temples every Sunday. That isn't the case! I found the perfect thing on Pinterest to depict what the difference is between LDS temples and LDS chapels. 

This picture basically explains it all. Mormon chapels are open to all visitors - people who are Mormons and people who are not Mormons. On Sundays, we attend the chapels. And what do we do in there? We sing, pray, teach each other about the gospel, and take the sacrament. We also baptize new members of the church in our church buildings. Then there's temples. Temples are reserved for the most holy ordinances, like sealings for eternal marriages. Mr. Schroeder and I got married in the Salt Lake City temple and I can honestly say it was the most amazing experience I have ever had. 


Do you have any questions about Mormons? Feel free to comment below or email me at wenserendipity(at)gmail(dot)com and your question could be answered on future Mormon Monday posts! 

These answers are purely answered to the best of my knowledge. I will always cite where I received my answer if it is not from my heart.

  1. I just listened to a podcast about this this morning. It was the Conversations by The Mormon Channel and it was a conversation with Elder Ballard and his wife and they talked about this exact thing. I have been in the church my whole life but this was so eye opening to me and he had some really great points. Thanks for sharing this with the world!!
