Lubbock Church Directory

New on Lubbock's religion scene is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In March, the temple held a week-long open house. After its dedication, the temple is entered only by Mormons in good standing.

Also, The American Muslim Council—Lubbock Chapter organized in October to speak to the community on socio-political issues that concern Muslims.
