Las Vegas Temple Dedication Scheduled

The new Las Vegas Nevada Temple—the forty-third operating temple in the Church—will be dedicated in services scheduled December 16 to 18, the First Presidency has announced.

The dedication will be preceded by a public open house from November 16 through December 9, with private tours for special guests November 13 to 15.

The temple, situated in an east-side Las Vegas residential area on the slope of Sunrise Mountain, is a highly visible landmark. Its exterior is of white cast stone, with copper trim and a copper roof. The tallest of its six towers (at 125 feet) is topped with a ten-foot statue of the angel Moroni.

The temple will serve members in Nevada and bordering portions of Arizona and California.
