HARVEST HILLS AT THIRTY-FIVE This presentation celebrates the thirty-fifth anniversary of Harvest Hills, an intentional, pilot community in Independence, Missouri, founded by members of the Community of Christ (formerly the RLDS church). It will give an overview of Harvest Hills’ history and philosophy, including the RLDS/COC concept of Zion as it was expanded by later church presidents. It will explain how residents have applied the concept of Zion to their community with varying degrees of success. It will discuss short-lived community endeavors, such as the Harvest Christian School and Cooperative, and contact with other Mormon groups.
