The Church organized another new stake in South Carolina in February. The new stake was organized on the 24th. The Hilton Head South Carolina Stake was organized from a division of the Savannah Georgia Stake. The new stake includes the following five wards and two branches: the Beaufort, Hilton Head, Pooler, Ridgeland, and Rincon Wards, and the Okatie (Spanish) and Parris Island Military Branches. The new stake is the Church's third new stake organized in South Carolina in the past 12 months.
There are now nine stakes in South Carolina.
