• FKA: Coeur d'Alene Stake (1962)

2022 Stake Division[]

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is growing in Kootenai County. A new stake has formed in Post Falls. Called the Post Falls Idaho Stake, it consists of approximately 3,100 members and will be presided over by President Bradley S. Moss with counselors Travis Roth and Timothy Bastedo.

“This division of stakes will create growth like we have never seen before,” President Moss said. The weekend-long event to create the stake concluded on Feb. 20 and was presided over by Elder Mark A. Bragg, North America Area president, and Elder Siegfried A. Nauman, Area Seventy.

Elder Nauman stated, “We don’t build new stakes without strength and growth of our members.” Elder Bragg reminded the congregation, “Through unity, regardless of personal views, revelation will come, and we will be able to bless others as we attend church together and serve one another.” Elder Bragg concluded the meeting with a blessing on the people of this area and a declaration: "We would have a temple in this area of our own, someday.”

The Church organized a new stake in the Coeur d'Alene area on February 20th. The Post Falls Idaho Stake was organized from a division of the Coeur d'Alene Idaho Stake and the Hayden Lake Idaho Stake. The new stake includes the following six wards and one branch: the Lakeland 1st, Lakeland 2nd, Pleasant View, Prairie Falls, Timberlake, and the White Pines Wards, and the Plummer Branch. There are now three stakes in the Coeur d'Alene metropolitan area. There are now 137 stakes in Idaho. [1][2]
