Located just east of the original Mesa Townsite, settled by Mormon pioneers, the Mesa Arizona Temple anchors a historic district, which has predominantly retained its residential character. A public visitors’ center shares the meticulously manicured grounds of the temple, which feature a cactus garden and large reflection pools. The Easter season brings thousands of guests to the temple grounds every year to watch Jesus the Christ, the largest annual outdoor easter pageant in the world. At Christmas time, the grounds are converted to an exquisite Nativity display accented by hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights. Source: LDS Church Temples
Yarnell Community Church
Yarnell Community Church’s main entrance is marked, Servants’ Entrance. While some would find this amusing, it is a testimony of the congregation’s view that everyone is equal in serving God and each other.
