Preparing for the Feather River California Temple Groundbreaking

All of the former structures on the site of the Feather River California Temple have been demolished and removed, clearing the way for next weekend's groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for Saturday, July 18, 2020. Yuba City sits at the junction of several major highways, making temple worship more accessible for many members throughout Northern California. The temple will be the most northern in the state.

The water features at the Washington D.C. Temple are operating including a circular fountain with a large center spray and an infinity-style reflection pool near the visitors' center. Beautiful landscaping has filled the grounds, and renovation is nearing completion. An open house that was originally scheduled to begin in September has been postponed in response to COVID-19.
