Two Sundays ago, a new stake was created in Colorado.
The Brighton Colorado Stake was organized from a division of the Denver Colorado North Stake and includes the following six wards and one branch: The Brighton, Fort Lupton, Henderson, Monte Vista (Spanish), Reunion, and Riverdale Wards and the Northridge YSA Branch. The new stake becomes the Church's 33rd stake in Colorado and the second new stake to be created in the state this year.
Several additional stakes appear likely to be organized in Colorado within the foreseeable future. The Colorado Springs North Stake currently has 14 wards and may divide in the near future. The Castle Rock Colorado and Highlands Ranch Colorado Stakes each have 11 wards at present and may divide to create a new stake headquartered in the Lone Tree area. The Greeley Colorado and Loveland Colorado Stakes each have 11 wards and may divide to create a new stake.
