Flin Flon’s Jehovah’s Witnesses will soon have a new building to call their own.
Construction on the congregation’s new Kingdom Hall is underway. The former Kingdom Hall was demolished earlier this summer, with the new hall being built on the site of the former church.
According to statistics supplied by Jehovah’s Witnesses Canada, about 85 Jehovah’s Witnesses live in Flin Flon, with around 100 people coming to each of the group’s biweekly meetings.
“We needed a new hall because the congregation has outgrown the old hall,” said congregation elder Kelly Flodell in a press release.
Construction on the project will be conducted in large part by volunteers, most of whom are Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves. The project has been financed by volunteer donations.
“Volunteers are coming from Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton… and as far as British Columbia, with many using vacation time to assist with the construction project,” reads the release.
