    If a church is causing confusion, I don't see why changing the name is a problem. Even churches YEARS ago would change their name. I remember one church being the Second ____ Church in the town and it was confusing even when there was a First _____ in the same town (right up the block). The 'second' church changed their name and became known as Central ______ Church because it was in the center of town. That happened back in the early 1900s, if I remember correctly.
