Community of Christ’s leadership continues its efforts to protect the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, it has announced that all World Church sites—including properties supported by the Historic Sites Foundation—will remain closed to the public through at least August 31.
Other properties, such as the Temple Complex and Peace Pavilion in Independence, Missouri, also will remain closed. In addition, World Church-sponsored events have been canceled through at least August 31.
An old friend has returned to a leadership position at a Community of Christ historic site.
Steve Smith, who proved a blessing of creativity and energy in his first stint as site director at Liberty Hall, returned to the position in Lamoni, Iowa, on February 10.
He replaces Cindy Wilson. She and her husband, Bryce Wilson, the site’s maintenance director, plan to move later this year.
