Saturday is local church open house

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently completed construction of a new meetinghouse that will serve church members in New Prague, Jordan, Belle Plaine, Webster and nearby communities.

To celebrate the opening of the building, local members are preparing an open house for the public to be held Saturday, July 28, with tours of the meetinghouse from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. People of all ages and faiths are welcome.

The meetinghouse, located at 1100 First Street NW near the new Raven Stream Elementary School, consists of a chapel that seats approximately 150 people, with room for expansion. It also includes a large cultural hall for sports and cultural arts activities, two offices, 10 classrooms and a kitchen.

Through the years, church members who lived in the New Prague area have had to travel to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area for Sunday and midweek worship activities and more recently to Lakeville to be part of a congregation based there.

Since the New Prague congregation was organized in November 2003, they have met in the elementary and junior high schools in New Prague, as well as meeting for the last two years in city hall.
