‘Christians’ say no to church
AFA initiatives, Christian activism, news briefs

July-August 2017 – In America’s increasingly secularized culture, even some professing Christians have opted out of attending traditional church services. A Barna study shows that in the U.S., 10% or more of people who self-identify as Christian do not hold church attendance as a high priority. Eighty percent of this group are between the ages of 33 and 70 – Gen-Xers and Boomers, not Millennials or elders. Millennials, the least churched generation, are least likely to identify as religious. Elders are most likely to identify as religious and attend church.
