New congregations created in the past month

Below is a list of some congregations that have been created or dissolved in the past month or so. As I have stated in my other blog, congregation growth is one of the greatest indicators in the growth of the overall Church. Congregations need members actively serving each other in order to function, let alone for the need of new congregations to be created. Sometimes I cannot pin point exactly which congregations are dissolved or created. So, in those cases just the stake will be cited along with the change in the number of its units. I have a record I keep of the number of wards and branch in each stake throughout the United States and Canada. This is difficult to do internationally because of the lack of websites created by the Church for other nations.

  • Phoenix Arizona West Maricopa Stake: one ward dissolved
  • Springdale Arkansas Stake: Har-Ber and Prairie Grove Wards created
