Rendering of the Fort Collins Colorado Temple Released

Salt Lake City — 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the rendering of the Fort Collins Colorado Temple.

The temple will be constructed on the southeast corner of the intersection at Trilby Road and Timberline Road, across the street from a Latter-day Saint chapel in Fort Collins.

President Thomas S. Monson announced construction of the temple at the Church’s April 2011 general conference.

While tens of thousands of Church meetinghouses are open to all people who wish to attend religious services there, temples are open only to faithful Latter-day Saints after they are formally dedicated. (See a Mormon Newsroom article explaining the difference between the Church’s chapels and temples.)

Latter-day Saint temples differ from the meetinghouses or chapels where members meet for Sunday worship services. Temples are considered “houses of the Lord” where Christ’s teachings are reaffirmed through baptism and other ordinances that unite families for eternity. In the temple, Church members learn more about the purpose of life and make covenants to follow Jesus Christ and serve their fellow man.
