Resurrecting church

Is church dying? There are predictions that in the next several years, churches in the United States will decline by around one quarter. Those who value church might ask the question “How can we reverse this trend?”

Consider a church in California that was on the brink of closing. They had a large building to maintain, and the membership had dwindled. But the four remaining members loved church and managed to keep going, as they felt it was important for a Church of Christ, Scientist, to have a presence in their community. The members continued with services and other church activities. But even more significantly, they committed to praying, because they realized that prayer was of primary importance in fulfilling their healing mission.
