The Indianapolis Temple
We've been attending the St. Louis temple since we moved here in 2000. Next month, a new temple in Indianapolis will be dedicated and that will be "our" temple from now on.
After a temple is built and before it is dedicated, it is open to the public to tour and learn why temples are so important and sacred to members of our church.
That public open house is going on right now.
Through August 8th (Sundays excluded), you can go inside the temple. We're looking forward to attending the open house this Friday. This is really a unique opportunity because it's the only time that this temple will be open to the general public.
The temple will be dedicated on August 23. After that, only members who hold a recommend (where members certify that they keep the commandments and are prepared to keep sacred temple covenants) will be allowed to enter.
If you're interested and would like to attend the Indianapolis Temple Open House, here's what you need to do:
