• Our Schedule

    Sunday we have Sunday School at 10, worship at 11, Choir Practice at 6, and evening worship at 7.

    Wednesday Evening our young people enjoy 'Wednesday Bible School' (like VBS but just an hour) and our adults have Bible Study at 7.

    Friday at noon we gather for a time of prayer. Send your requests and we'll add them; or even better, come join us.

    We also have special events, opportunities for fellowship, ministry, and worship. We'd love to have you and your family join us for all of it.

The Future of The Church…?

According to the Times Online

Church attendance in Britain is declining so fast that the number of regular churchgoers will be fewer than those attending mosques within a generation, research published today suggests.The fall – from the four million people who attend church at least once a month today – means that the Church of England, Catholicism and other denominations will become financially unviable. A lack of funds from the collection plate to support the Christian infrastructure, including church upkeep and ministers’ pay and pensions, will force church closures as ageing congregations die.

As goes Europe, so goes America. Sooner or later. And further

According to Religious Trends, a comprehensive statistical analysis of religious practice in Britain, published by Christian Research, even Hindus will come close to outnumbering churchgoers within a generation. The forecast to 2050 shows churchgoing in Britain declining to 899,000 while the active Hindu population, now at nearly 400,000, will have more than doubled to 855,000. By 2050 there will be 2,660,000 active Muslims in Britain – nearly three times the number of Sunday churchgoers.

And there you have it- a bit of a look at things to come.
