The Church will create its second stake in the state of Delaware tomorrow from a division of the Wilmington Delaware Stake which currently has 12 wards and four branches. The new stake will be called the Dover Delaware Stake.
The Brooklyn New York North District was recently discontinued and consolidated with the Brooklyn New York Stake. The former district had three of its five branches closed as part of the consolidation. It is unclear exactly why so many branches were closed as part of the closure of the district, but low member activity rates appear the most likely culprit.
