Church Releases Rendering for the Feather River California Temple


An exterior rendering has been released showing the planned design of the Feather River California Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The temple, which was announced in October 2018 by Church President Russell M. Nelson, will be built at 1470 Butte House Road in Yuba City, California. Plans call for a temple of just over 38,000 square feet, as well as a new meetinghouse and distribution center to be built next to the temple. An existing meetinghouse on that site will be demolished.

The temple site will cover nine acres, which includes a small parcel of land the Church plans to purchase from Yuba City in the near future.


Detailed design plans for the temple are still being developed. Further information — including interior and exterior renderings — will be made public later. A groundbreaking date has not been set yet. Project leaders will begin working with city officials on preliminary plans for the temple, and they will start filing public documents in the coming months.

This will be the eighth temple in California. Other temples are located in FresnoLos AngelesNewport BeachOaklandRedlandsSacramento and San Diego

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints consider temples to be the “house of the Lord,” the most sacred places on earth. Unlike meetinghouses, where Sabbath worship and weekly activities take place, temples are open throughout the week and closed on Sundays.
