Joel Butzin is the newly sustained bishop of the Uncompahgre Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His counselors are Gary Messano and Glade Pulver. Bishop Butzin and Gary Messano are residents of Delta while Glade Pulver resides in Olathe.

Stake president Nicolas T. Taylor of Montrose presided at the proceedings Jan. 22 in the chapel at 1679 Pioneer Road in Delta. Other leaders and local members were also present.

Bishop Butzin replaces Chad Harris who had served as bishop since 2012.

Generally a bishopric serves for approximately five years. Approximately 411 members of the church are located in the ward. The church has over 15.6 million members worldwide (ldsnewsroom.org).

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 parts of Austin, east Delta and all of Olathe.

Church services are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday. Visitors are welcome.
