Covid restrictions have hurt the Church very badly in America. In talking to many Pastors they beleive some, if not many, will not come back to the Church. I pray that will not happen. Certainly a sign of the times……….Many Americans continue to make Facebook and other social media there Church.
(Gallup) Americans’ membership in houses of worship continued to decline last year, dropping below 50% for the first time in Gallup’s eight-decade trend. In 2020, 47% of Americans said they belonged to a church, synagogue or mosque, down from 50% in 2018 and 70% in 1999.
U.S. church membership was 73% when Gallup first measured it in 1937 and remained near 70% for the next six decades, before beginning a steady decline around the turn of the 21st century.
As many Americans celebrate Easter and Passover this week, Gallup updates a 2019 analysis that examined the decline in church membership over the past 20 years.
