I just spoke to a friend and the church he attends (2000) is loosing people in the 35-60 age area. He as well as the staff are at a loss as to why, and what can be done. Idea's would be appreciated. As to why, I find some pastors know it and don't care because they are going to have contemporary services like it or leave. This isn't the case with this man's church. Not interested to argue the contemp./traditional issue - just how things can be changed to overcome the leaving age group. This church has gone to a few hymns.
