One of the big hurdles for Mitt Romney in the presidential race has been educating voters about his religion. He's a Mormon-- a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and while Utah is known as the headquarters of the church, there are a few congregations here locally.

On Tuesday they hosted a fall festival and open house at the Fountain City church and invited the public to join them and take a tour.

They say they hope it will give people a better perspective of who Mormons are and what they believe.

"We understand that because of Mitt Romney running for president, and community interest from churches and organizations locally, that they have wanted to learn more about our church," said Jennifer Hughes, director of public affairs.

10News recently put together a larger piece on Mormonism on East Tennessee that you can read here.
