A lot of the "consolidations" in Ohio? Interesting!
Major congregational quake in Southern California
The Youngstown congos would be in addition to the ones I heard about, one being Loudenville and the other somewhere north of Cambridge. So that makes 8 in ohio now. Im led to believe more will be announced this week or next.
Wow what we see going on here is a going out business fire sale just warming up!
This might be a good time to start taking teaching books from the carts again and putting them in the trash it might help to close more kingdom halls even faster
The Branch is looking at every KH, Assembly Hall, living space for Special Pioneers, and any other property (at least in the southern U.S.). LDCs are meeting to discuss consolidation, maintenance, eliminating redundancies, etc.
Scenic Viewer - "...Wouldn't 'rapid growth' mean that more KHs are needed, not fewer, which will be the direct result of merging?"
Not anymore, evidently.
Add it to the ever-expanding list of english-language words the Org has redefined to suit their needs.
- Awesome news for the Buckeye State! Maybe my hall will be dissolved. We only average about 50-60 a meeting. The funny thing is that we share a hall with a congregation that is twice our size.
I am still trying to figure out how all of this fits with the big letter that was read to elders at a special meeting about the building work ramping up.
Wasnt that in January of 2015?
It was followed immediately but a full reduction and a pull back.
The only answer I can think of on my own is that there is some vying for control over future courses of action up at headquarters.
This is a no brainer for the Org. It's not only financial, but also for appearances. By consolidating, Jdubs will begin to see full KHs during meetings, and this will have a positive effects on people's minds.
