Eric Collier, president of the Ada Branch, invites all to attend the service and join church members for a pot-luck lunch afterward at the local chapel, located at 2100 E. Arlington in Ada.

Congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ are typically organized geographically into warns, but in areas where there are fewer church members, Latter-day Saints are organized into branches.

The Ada Branch, established 54 years ago, covers the areas of Pontotoc and Coal counties as well as portions of Seminole, Pottawatomie and Johnston counties. Over the last several years, there has been an increase in membership and activity in the Ada branch and local leaders announced Oct. 14 that the First Presidency of the Church, headquartered in Salt Lake City, had approved the branch for reorganization into a ward.

Members of the Ada Branch are excited for this reorganization and hope that you will join them to worship and celebrate the growth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the area. Questions are welcome by calling 580-332-5892.
