Church Attendance Up in America
Teresa Neumann : Jul 5, 2010 : Audrey Barrick - The Christian Post
"Overall, church attendance is increasing in America and Gallup does not believe it is tied to economic woes...it is statistically significant."
A new Gallup poll shows church attendance in the U.S. has increased slightly in 2010; 43.1 percent of Americans reporting weekly or almost weekly church attendance, up from 42.1 percent in 2008.
According to the report, the most dedicated churchgoers are conservatives, non-Hispanic blacks, and Republicans and those least likely to attend church at least once a week or almost every week are liberals, Asians, and those aged 18 to 29 years.
"The increase comes as Americans' economic confidence has also risen, suggesting that, instead of church attendance rising when economic times get bad, as some theorize, the opposite pattern may be occurring," the research organization stated.
