1290 JW Congregations have been deleted since 4th Dec 2022

    I wonder where the people that attend the Crest Hill KH will go; that’s 3 congregations, and I believe this KH was built in 2010.
    The closest KHs are Joliet and Plainfield (unless they decide to sell those).

    I have attended the Crest Hill Kingdom Hall several times for a wedding and a funeral talk. The inside is modern and the outside sits in a beautiful rural setting. Must be sitting on several acres.

    I will be seeing my cousin soon. Hopefully, he brings up that his Kingdom Hall is being deleted. I will play dumb and pretend I don't know anything about the Society closing the doors on all the congregations that attend this Kingdom Hall.

    I will ask him several questions: Why is the Society closing the Kingdom Hall? Is it because the 3 congregations cannot pay the mortgage loans? What's going to happen to the property? Where will you be attending for your meetings? Are they planning on selling the property?

    Sounds like plan. I believe Shorewood and Crest Hill congs share it with a Spanish Cong.

    I knew many people in both those English congs years ago. I wonder how many are out now.

    Please keep us posted!

    PS. Sent you a private email on this board.

    I bet with all money watchtower sending to Africa, JWs there must be driving luxury cars and wearing gold 😁. What a scam.

    Sorry, I’m not buying it. If anybody wants to believe they are ‘building halls in Africa’, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them.

    I am inclined to believe like VIDIOT does that halls there would be relatively inexpensive to make.

    This using the money to build halls in Africa is total nonsense. Here is something I posted on a thread a while back:

    Talking about the disparity between wealthy and poorer countries. I remember as a PIMI, that the KH I attended was going through, what I considered to be, an unnecessary renovation.

    During this exact same time I had to travel to a developing country, for work purposes. While visiting a town I decided to attend a meeting. Tbh the Kingdom Hall, I felt, was in a very bad state of repair. What I found troubling, so much so that I can remember it to this day, is that we were squandering money on a building that really didn’t need it. Why wasn’t wt designating this money to this KH in this developing country. I now know the reason why. Shortly after the ReFab the KH was sold, in order for a quickly built hall. The buggers walked away with a 100k ReFab, that its members paid for, and a $mill plus for when the hall was sold.
