I remember my dad giving public talks at many of those congregations when I was very young.
Congregations That May Dissolve Soon!!
It's hard to see the Borg doing away with KH's, FS groups. The cult mentality keeps the rank and file in line by going to the KH. Reporting to eldubs with and being at meetings whips the rank and file into line. KH's and FS groups are an effective way to control the rank and file. Because it would be far to easy for the PIMO rank and file members to slip under the radar almost undetected.
Having eldubs around is most effective cult tool.
But again thanks to Eric Wilson, EXJW Critical thinker and of course John Cedars.
Mike and Kim will no doubt keep us up to date, day by day, LOL
@ Doctor Who:Which congregations in Pittsburgh? Do you know?
Plum and Pleasant Hills were both merged and dissolved last year. West Mifflin/Clairton is losing their building this year to the turnpike, and from the Elders meeting last year it was insinuated that one of those congregations will merged, the other to share at another local hall. With renovations just being finished at Carrick and Braddock scheduled to be done at the end of February, It looks to be true.
EDIT...I was also told the Avonmore KH was sold and the congregation was dissolved. I drove past there last month and the signs are down. I haven't been able to get a confirmation if they moved to another Hall, or was dissolved though. (That congregation is in Westmoreland County about 15 minutes from Plum)
It's all about money.
''It's all about money.''
I can't find the Kim & Mike youtube re/these hall dissolutions -- I probably have to 'subscribe'. Any links? Thx

You can subscribe if you want to - or click on their icon and it will take you to thumbnails of all their videos - click on the relevant thumbnail and you'll be fine.
Thank you, steve2. I raced through some of their YouTubes but didn't find one -- I'll try again.
These closures will be touted as a "loving provision" that will streamline the organization and make it more effective at doing Jehovah's work.
If y'all want the property listings, I name them now & have screen shots in our NAIL IN COFFIN videos.
