A new bishopric was called to preside over the congregation of the White Rock Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
A bishopric consists of a bishop and two counselors and is called to oversee the congregation of the membership of a ward and administer the temporal affairs and spiritual and social enrichment of the group. The callings are non-paid positions and normally last several years. Bishop Steven Harris, with counselors Terrill Lemke and David Gartz, take the place of Bishop Steven Stokes, with counselors Robert Parker and Steve Painter, after five-and-a-half years of service in White Rock.
The change was announced during last Sunday’s Sacrament meeting under the direction of the Santa Fe Stake President Michael Zollinger.
