The name for a local LDS congregation. Usually more than one ward meets in the same meetinghouse on Sundays. (e.g., one meets from 9-11; the other from 1-3.) Wards vary in size from 400 to 800 members. When a ward reaches 800 members, it is divided. Wards are set up on a geographical basis, with the result that members do not have a choice of what ward they can attend.
