Temple Sessions and Templeside

Thursday, August 1

We are excited to be able to offer both Temple Session opportunities & a Templeside for the 2019 OC LDS 31+ Singles Conference. We invite all who are participating in the conference to make it a priority to attend a temple in their local area the week of the conference. For those who will be in the Orange County area, and whose schedule allows for them to attend the Newport Beach Temple on Thursday afternoon or early evening, we have Conference Temple & Dinner Group Hosts to greet you on the steps outside the Temple before and after your session.

The Newport Beach Temple is no longer taking reservations and patrons will be a first come, first served basis. If the session is full, conference attendees may participate in other ordinances. Please note that these are not private Conference Temple Sessions and that there will be other patrons in attendance. Clothing rental opportunities are very limited at the Newport Beach Temple, so please bring your own temple clothes with you.

Pre & Post Temple Session Dinner Groups are a fantastic opportunity to get to know fellow conference attendees in a casual, small group setting at the very beginning of the conference. For those whose schedules don’t allow for a Temple Session, but would like to meet up for dinner prior to the Templeside, please join us for a dinner group.
