The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known as the Mormon Church, has experienced a real growth in the last while in the Lakeland area. As a result it was decided two years ago to move the meeting place to the town of St. Paul. Services are now held in the old Provincial Building in town of St. Paul. The average attendance at this time is around seventy-five. Members meet each Sunday.
Members in the Elk Point area include Charles and Sharon Nelson and their six children, of Lindbergh; (Mrs.) Helen Smith of Elk Point; Frank and Jeannette Wilding and their two children, of the King George area; Art and Ivy Hildebrandt of Elk Point; Cal and Marilyn Lybben and their six children of the Orvillton area;
Blame, Deanna and Irwin Easthope of Elk Point. At present the church has purchased three acres of land in the town of St. Paul and hopes to erect a church costing nearly one million dollars on this land in the next two years.
