Church announces new leadership

Leadership change is nothing new to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Generally, every five years, a new bishop is called from the congregation to serve as the ecclesiastical leader. Jerey Wilson of the Buckley 1st Ward (similar to a parish) and Gene Spader from the Buckley 2nd Ward are the newest members to receive the calling of bishop. Wilson replaces Arlin Satterthwaite of Buckley and Spader replaces McKay Kunz of South Prairie.

A welcoming place. It’s a place where God’s people gather together for fellowship and worship. A place where hurting people can find comfort, support, and genuine love. The church is God’s house.
