The Decline of the American Church Examined at Lifetree Café
- 12 - 1 p.m.
- All Ages
The closing of thousands of churches nationwide and a steady decrease in church attendance will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Friday, Nov. 8, at NOON.
The program, titled “Has God Left the Building?” features filmed interviews with several experts on the American church, including Steve Hewitt, a writer for The American Church Magazine.
“Statistically the church in America has been dying since the 1970s,” says Hewitt. “In a decade the church in America is going to have a whole different look: what it is and where it is. And what about all of these empty church buildings?”
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at 2500 29th Ave. (inside Lutheran Church of the Resurrection).
Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Emily at (319) 377-4689 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
