WORLD RELIGIONS REPORT 2 World Religions Report Living in a city as diverse as the Seattle/Tacoma Washington area there is an abundance of religions to choose from when it comes to research. Just in Tacoma alone, there are two Buddhist temples, there are two Islamic centers nearby as well, one in University Place and the other in Lakewood. Christianity was the chosen religion for this report because it is the most practiced in the area. Even though Christianity was the religion picked, which is not the end of possible choices. Christianity has different branches that have their own beliefs and rituals. In Christianity, there are Catholics, Baptists, Mormons, Methodists, Protestant, Jehovah's Witnesses, and many more. To choose one to do research on is difficult in itself to choose one as a place to worship is an entirely different task.

Near the bookstore there is an area designed for teenagers in mind, they provide a climbing wall, basketball hoops, foosball tables, and other teen activities. Off the teen area are classrooms where the teenagers can go for their Sunday school. Age groups segregate the classrooms so that the volunteers that teach the class can focus their lessons on a certain age group. A hallway leads away from the teen area, this hallway houses the classrooms are for the younger children. Again the classrooms are age segregated. For the toddlers there is large play area to include a ball pit, slides, and a play set. This is available for them to release their energy instead of trying to have them to sit still for lessons.
