We're getting a Temple!!!!!

We here in our little town are getting an LDS Temple!!!! As a temple going member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints this excites me like you wouldn't believe! It'll be just down the road from our house. WOW! Now it will be so much easier to go to the temple. :) I'm very excited! Our temple will bring the number of operating LDS temples to 152 in the world.

Pardon my ignorance, but is a temple different than a church? If so, how?

Church = Normal Sunday worship. Open to anyone.

Temple = More once in a lifetime type rituals (in Mormon speak Ordinances), sealings and endowments.

It was tough finding a site that that wasn't either proselyting or Mormon bashing. But PBS always does a decent job.

Thanks for the explanation. I was raised Presbyterian and since became more or less agnostic, so I don't understand much about any other religions, but tend to find them interesting. Even going to Catholic church with Mrs Nobody seems "weird" to me.

Way back in 4th grade my best friend was Mormon, but I didn't really know much about it, other than they couldn't drink caffeinated soda.
