Are You Undecided About Easter Attendance?

Survey: One in Five Americans Undecided About Easter Church Attendance

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.

What is Easter 200?

Easter 200 is a reminder that we the folks of The Ridge Church have a great God called and God given responsibility to reach our communities for Jesus. In fact, we exist to lead non-believers into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. This is our mission.

Easter 200 is a vision of how we can easily fulfil our mission on a particular Sunday morning. On this specific Sunday, similar numbers of Americans plan on attending (41 percent) as are not planning to attend (39 percent) an Easter worship service, 20 percent say they are undecided and thus are naturally open to your invitation. Imagine what might transpire with your personal invitation.

Easter 200 is a challenge. We are challenged to put into practice what we say we believe. We believe that all have sinned and missed God’s standard of perfection. We believe that sin separates us from God. We believe that God sent Jesus to redeem us and restore that relationship through the cross. We believe that unless a person accepts what Jesus did on the cross and asks for forgiveness they are eternally separated from God. We believe that God has called us individually and as a congregation to share the Good News that God desires that no one should perish but all come to repentance through Jesus.

Therefore, this is a reminder that The Ridge Church has a vision to reach our communities and challenged to an attendance of 200 in worship on Easter Sunday morning! Are you ready?The Lord God is with you!
