DOES GOD STILL NEED THE CHURCH?
Special program for all adults on Wednesday, January 10 at 6pm.
The past 40 years have seen staggering rates of church decline in western Europe and North America. No single denomination is immune to this attrition, with many church leaders scrambling to come up with a solution to the problem. Some have even called for Christians to abandon the so-called normal church for new and creative communities in order to engage modern culture.
