    We're usually between 200 - 250 at 11AM. About 100 at 8AM.

    Not sure of actual members, but about a dozen each Sunday Morning, and maybe half to 3/4 that in the evening and Wens.
    Very small, close knit group.

    The church I am serving as Interim Pastor has gone through a slide in attendance over the last four years. I am told that we have turned around slightly in the last couple of months. If, as interim, I can lead them to create an evangelism strategy, we can start back up, I am confident. They have everything they need for that ... great building, good location, fine programming, etc. ... but need the motivation and the strategy.

    So average is about 315 right now. Ask again after Christmas Eve. I am told that they can have as many as 700 for Christmas Eve. Warming up that power-punch sermon right now!!

    CME = Christmas, Mothers Day and Easter. These are strange services because the Church is full, but with non-church folks. May God be with you reaching the unsaved. I pray one (or more) comes to Christ...

    In the 450-624 range. However we have two services because our building is too small to hold all of those people. Our church is booming right now, not just in numbers either. Real revival seems to be breaking out in our church.

    I had to guess -- don't know for sure.

    We just added another Sunday am service. We had two services -- one traditional/liturgical and more blended/contemporary. As opposite the trend, the new service is another traditional one.

    about 700-750 for us. A good Wed. night for me (youth) is 130-150. We'll see 300-350 here on Wed. night. We're growing everywhere but Sunday nights. It's getting tougher to get folks here then. Between being away, work schedules (this decimates my high-school population), greater homework loads, and tons more extra-curricular stuff on Sundays (not to mention societal shifts), folks aren't into the Sunday PM thing as they once were.

    Speaking of Christmas services...we usually have a great crowd (300-400) for Christmas Eve services. But it's not as much "Christmas/Easter only" people per se...it's more like a homecoming service. Extended families come. Many kids/grandkids/siblings who grew up in our church and moved away, return to Christmas Eve services as a part of their family visit.

    Makes for a nice, intimate, familial, "welcome-home" atmosphere.

    Sometimes just over 200 on special occasions, but usually around 150+.
