U.S. Worship Diversity Increases, Participation Decreases

Most people are aware that nondenominational Protestant congregations lead the way in worship innovation and, as a result, are both larger and younger than other Christian groups. However, the median size of all American congregations continues to decline, except among Muslims. These and other findings are explored in the report “FACTs on Worship: 2010,” published by Faith Communities Today, a joint survey project of more than 25 religious denominations and traditions that has been surveying American congregations since 2000. The 2010 report, written by Marjorie H. Royle, independent researcher and former director of research for the United Church of Christ, reflects results of a survey of more than 11,000 congregations across the U.S. faith spectrum.
