Meridian Idaho Temple Construction
Welcome CenterThe welcome center provides an opportunity for the public to safely view the construction site and learn about temple construction and why The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints builds temples. The welcome center contains demonstrations of the processes that are currently being used in the construction and presents a video which shows the updated progress. Also, a viewing area is provided to watch the construction. Visitors are never allowed to pass beyond the construction site fence.
Temple Construction Missionary couples, Elder Gregory and Sister Michele Peck and Elder Keith and Sister Mary Ann Miller, operate the welcome center during the daily hours shown below.
The welcome center is located inside the northeast foyer of the new Stake Center on the construction site. A visitor parking lot is located north of the Stake Center just outside of the main site gate. The capacity of the lot is limited, so car-pooling is encouraged. See the picture below. DO NOT ENTER THE CONSTRUCTION SITE!
ATTENTION: Construction situations may require temporary closures of the welcome center. See “EXCEPTIONS” below for emergent changes to the schedule or call 208-884-1918.

"Prepare now for the temple, the mountain of the Lord. Never allow the goal of the temple to be out of your sight. Walk into His presence in purity and virtue, and receive His blessings—even 'all that he hath.'"
