Temple Announcement

On April 4, 2021, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Grand Junction Colorado Temple at the 191st Annual General Conference. Colorado, in the Intermountain West of the United States, is home to over 150,000 Latter-day Saints and around 310 congregations. The first mission of the Church in Colorado was established in 1896. The first official congregation was formed only a year later, in January 1897. The Grand Junction Colorado Temple will be the third for the state. Temples in operation in Colorado are the Denver Colorado Temple and the Fort Collins Colorado Temple.1
