A new bishopric has been called to serve in the Uncompahgre Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). Chad Harris of Olathe is newly sustained as bishop.
His counselors are Don Christensen of Olathe and Nathan King of Delta.
Stake president Nicolas Taylor of Montrose presided at the Jan. 29 proceedings in the chapel at 1679 Pioneer Road in Delta. Other leaders and local members were also present.
Bishop Harris replaces Kevin Pulsipher of Delta who has served as bishop since 2007. Generally a bishopric serves for approximately five years.
Approximately 400 members of the church are located in the ward. The church has over 14 million members worldwide.
Members of the church are organized into congregations called wards (larger) and branches (smaller) that meet together frequently for spiritual and social enrichment.
Each ward and branch comprises a specific geographic region. Uncompahgre Ward includes Olathe and parts of Delta. Church services are 9 a.m. to noon every Sunday. Visitors are welcome.blog comments powered by Disqus
