The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often abbreviated "LDS") is a popular church whose members are called Mormons. Davis is part of the Woodland Stake, which includes Woodland, Davis, Dixon, and Winters. Prior to the opening of a new temple, the nearest active temple was in Oakland. The [WWW]Sacramento temple opened in September 2006 in Rancho Cordova.

Two of the three congregations in Davis were recently (effective April 1, 2007) reorganized along demographic, instead of geographic, lines. This fairly unusual move was made primarily so that all the LDS youth in Davis could be together in weekly meetings. The congregations (called "wards") and their meeting times are as follows:

Davis First Ward (for anyone in Davis that doesn't fit the descriptions of the other two wards):

Davis Second Ward (comprising married students and their spouses, with or without children):

Elmwood Ward (comprising unmarried adults 18-30):
