New Little Current Kingdom Hall, open to the public this weekend
By  Robin Burridge  -  November 8, 2017

LITTLE CURRENT —  The Kingdom Hall in Little Current is hosting open houses this weekend to unveil its new building to the community.

The short 10-week construction project was made possible thanks to volunteers from community and national JehovahÂ’s Witness congregation members.

“The entire new hall was built by volunteers,” explained LeeAnn Fawcett, who gave The Expositor a tour of the new building along with her husband and church elder Dan Fawcett. “There is a group of volunteers who travel throughout Canada building or renovating halls. Locally, people were asked about their skills and helped on site with everything from building to painting. Individuals (of the congregation) helped other ways too such as providing meals and accommodations. It is wonderful to be able to look around the new hall and know that we built it together.”

“We were outgrowing our old building and it was determined that it was time to replace it opposed to doing renovations,” said Mr. Fawcett.

The old hall was torn down on June 5 of this year and construction on the new building started on June 8. The building was completed and the first meeting in the new hall was held on Sunday, August 20.

“The new building is all sensored and features LED lights,” explained Mr. Fawcett, noting that it is very green and energy efficient. “It knows when people are here and exchanges the air four times an hour, which is very helpful for people with allergies. It was also built using concrete foam, which maintains the temperature, and we have in floor heating.”

The new facility is also wheelchair accessible, with a ramp up to the stage in the main room.

“We were pleased to get new chairs as well,” shared Ms. Fawcett. “The building is designed as a package so we didn’t need to worry about anything.”

There are no paid workers at the Kingdom Hall—from the building of the new hall to running the church, everyone is a volunteer.

The Little Current Kingdom Hall has a core group of 40 members with seven elders who take on various roles such as accounting, education and speaking at meetings.

The building was paid for by the JehovahÂ’s Witnesses. All contributions made to the church are forwarded on to help build other halls around the world, as well as provide relief work.

There are two main rooms: the large meeting room and a smaller meeting room that can accommodate additional people or be used as a multi purpose room. Together the rooms have a capacity of 85.

“We have dual monitors in the main room and one in the smaller meeting room that can all play the same program,” said Mr. Fawcett. “We use it for music, videos, pictures and for presentations. We have an upgraded phone system as well using the Internet that allows people who can’t make the meeting to listen from home.”

“The smaller meeting room is also used by our Anishinaabemowin language group,” Ms. Fawcett said. “Our Sunday meeting is half in Anishinaabemowin and half in English. Our group is also working on translating projects such as pamphlets in Anishinaabemowin, videos and items for the website. The Jehovah’s Witnesses website is available in 120 languages and we are responsible for the Anishinaabemowin.”

The Kingdom Hall is always open to the public, but this weekend the congregation wants to encourage members of the community to come see the new building and join in the celebration.

The Little Current Kingdom Hall of JehovahÂ’s Witness is located at 51 Wilson Street. The open house will be held on Friday, November 10 from 4 to 8 pm and on Saturday, November 11 from 10 am to 2 pm.

The brand new Kingdom Hall on Wilson Street in Little Current was completed in just 10 weeks thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers from across the country.

    • I dunno. The trick would be to persuade them they really are assets and not just the next UN NGO bright idea.
    • Of course, Bitcoin is about believing in an irrational fantasy … much like Santa Clause controlling the global economy in the month of December. Or the true value of U.S. Currency, with a 33 TRILLION DOLLAR NATIONAL DEBT!! Let's start from the beginning to calculate the length of a string of one hundred dollar bills that would equal 33 trillion dollars. First, let's find out how many one hundred dollar bills are in 33 trillion dollars: 33 trillion dollars = 33,000,000,000,000 dollars Number of one hundred dollar bills = 33,000,000,000,000 / 100 = 330,000,000,000, or 3.3 x 10^11 one hundred dollar bills. Now, let's calculate the length of a single one hundred dollar bill. The dimensions of a U.S. one hundred dollar bill are approximately 2.61 inches in width and 6.14 inches in length. To convert the length to miles, we'll divide by 63,360 (since there are 63,360 inches in a mile): Length of a single one hundred dollar bill = 6.14 inches / 63,360 ≈ 0.0000966 miles. Now, let's find the total length of the string of one hundred dollar bills: Total length = (3.3 x 10^11 one hundred dollar bills) x (0.0000966 miles per bill) Total length ≈ 31,878,000 miles. So, a string of one hundred dollar bills that would equal 33 trillion dollars is approximately 31,878,000 miles long. The result of the division 31,878,000 miles, divided by 240,000 miles, is 132.825. 240,000 miles is the approximate distance from the Earth to the Moon. So, the USA National Debt is a line of One Hundred Dollar Bills stretching 132 times PAST the distance from the Earth to the Moon !!!!! …  swoon “thunk”. …. Pudgycoin looking better to you now?
    • Especially in this age when more and more people are shopping on line, there will always be a high demand for card board boxes. That’s why my digital currency of choice is Pudgycoin …. the only digital currency based on corrugated cardboard. AND it comes in a convenient ten pound box, for easy identification. So trusted that there are no financial records to see, and one Pudgycoin is ALWAYS worth what we imagine it to be. Available at the Empire Hancock Building Penthouse Offices, where six diving boards means there is never any wait, and selected Veterinarians, and Pet Supply Stores, in some towns. Remember “Pudgycoin!, … If Things Get Really Bad, You Can Eat Them!”.
    • Someone responded to me today with this quote re: Bitcoin... made me smile. 😉 I actually wouldn't be surprised if Bethel is starting to allocate some holdings in Bitcoin as a way of preserving their assets against local governments around the world after Russia essentially just stole the Branch office. Multisig wallets across continents with many wallet addresses and hidden directors from various countries would make sense. Lawyers would have a very hard time tracking assets they don't even know exist under corporate structures and trusts they also don't know exist. 
    • The new fund will provide direct exposure to Bitcoin The fund will be managed by Nomura’s digital asset and blockchain venture arm Laser Capital Bringing more institutional capital into Bitcoin is one of the most important new catalysts on the horizon for future price appreciation and widespread adoption of Bitcoin as its own asset class If Japan follows a similar trend to the United States then this new Bitcoin fund will likely set off a domino effect of other investment banks and asset managers wanting to launch their own Japan has recently been changing their attitude towards crypto and even announced a new proposal for certain types of businesses to be able to issue crypto assets instead of equity when raising capital https://www.thenew.money/article/japans-biggest-bank-is-coming-for-crypto
