Mormon ideas have been in the area for awhile, as demonstrated by this clipping from the December 18, 1869 edition of the Davisville Advertiser.

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 congregations in Woodland, Davis, Dixon, and Winters.

There are presently two congregations (called wards) which meet in the Davis chapel. Their Sunday meeting times are:

Davis Ward:

  • Main (sacrament) meeting — 9:30 am
  • Sunday school — 10:40 am

Elmwood Ward (comprising unmarried adults ages 18-30):

  • Main (sacrament) meeting — 12:30 pm
  • Sunday school — 1:40 pm

All people, regardless of religious affiliation, are invited to attend meetings of either ward on Sundays.

In addition to meetings on Sunday, other meetings occur throughout the week at the meetinghouse location. Typically these meetings are for specific groups such as Boy Scouts or free English classes.

Institute of Religion The Institute of Religion offers college-level religious instruction to LDS students and anyone else interested. For more information, see the website above or stop by the Institute of Religion during the UC Davis school year.

The Sacramento temple of the Church opened in September 2006 in Rancho Cordova. Prior to the opening of the new temple, the nearest active temple was in Oakland.
