Corner of North Stevens Street and Regina Street
of Latter-Day Saints
Since 1979 the spire of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day-Saints has signified this Mormon Church on the corner of North Stevens and Regina Streets in the Brentwood area of the northern part of Spokane. The architectural plans for the building are based on one of the approved designs of the Mormon Church, (See Link 1.) but were modified by a local architect to conform to area Building Codes.
The building plan includes a central gym with a stage surrounded by a hall. The hall opens to the Chapel, kitchen, meeting rooms, meeting room with the immersion baptismal font, and the Family History Office.
The Chapel in the Brentwood Ward is of a similar design to that in Edmonton, Alberta, pictured below. The pews are arranged with two side aisles. The pew seating can be augmented by an addition on the other side of folding doors at the rear of the Chapel and further by additional folding doors leading to the gym. Approximately 350-400 members attend Sunday Services. The front of the church holds banked theater styled chairs for the choir, a central lectern, and on the right, a communion table. There is no cross in the church as the emphasis is on the risen Christ. And there is no art work in the Chapel as it would be seen as a distraction during worship.
