Stake Discontinued in Utah
A couple Sundays ago a stake was discontinued in the Salt Lake City area in Utah. Formerly consisting of six wards, the Bennion Heights Utah Stake was discontinued and consolidated with the neighboring Bennion Utah and Bennion Utah West Stakes. As part of the stake realignment, four wards were discontinued among the three stakes originally covering the area, including the Bennion 15th, Bennion Heights 4th, Bennion Heights 7th, and Ridgecrest 2nd Wards. Currently the Bennion Utah Stake has eight wards and the Bennion Utah West Stake has seven wards and a branch. There are 556 stakes and one district in Utah at present.
