About

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormons) began on 6 April 1830, in Fayette, NY.  There are 85,363 members of the Church in Georgia with 157 Congregations, 1 Temple in Atlanta, 3  Missions, and 44 Family History Centers.

Members of the Church believe in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. The Atlanta Georgia Temple is a place for Church members to make sacred promises with God and unite families for eternity. The Church's Helping Hands program sends thousands of volunteers throughout the Southeast to provide natural disaster relief. A legal clinic in Chamblee, associated with Emory University School of Law, provides free legal advice to immigrants through volunteer attorneys. Forty-four family history centers offer free genealogy assistance. JustServe.org (https://www.JustServe.org) is a free online service that helps organizations and communities build unity through service opportunities.

The Sugar Hill Stake (similar to a diocese) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is located in Suwanee, GA - a suburb of Metro-Atlanta.  It has more than 2,500 members with 6 congregations.
