Easter Sunday Church attendance is not a cut and dry decision for everyone – even for self-identified Christians. There are as many Americans saying they are not attending, as are attending, Easter worship services. However, 20 percent say they are undecided.
This undecided group includes those who rarely attend and those who attend only on religious holidays.
In addition, eighteen percent who attend only on religious holidays do not plan to attend on Easter, as do 92 percent who never go to church. About half of Americans who say they rarely attend church do not plan on attending at Easter.
Also, Americans age 55-64 are the least likely to attend Easter services (29 percent), but those 65 and older (50 percent) are more likely to attend than those in the youngest demographic: 18-29 (41 percent).
Folks of The Ridge Church, we must be mindful of our many friends and family who haven’t ruled out the idea of attending Easter Sunday. It may be that a personal invitation from you is what would make a difference to them.
Easter is the greatest celebration of the Christian faith. As one in five Americans keeps their options open, we have no reason to be shy about asking friends to join us for Easter worship.
