“… go and make disciples….” (Matthew 28:19)
I love Community Christian Church of Marana! I appreciate our history, am in awe of our commitment to outreach (made evident by the purchase last fall of the Puma Rd. property on which our Outreach Center sits, and current planning to develop the property), and admire the incredible faith I see in so many of our people. I also believe that diversity of age, life experience, and ethnic backgrounds make our congregation richer than if we were all the same. I am a better person because my family and I get to “be church” with you.
So I was dismayed when I recently saw for the past two years, our worship attendance has dropped by 16%. That’s a trend in the wrong direction, one which our church hasn’t seen since 2006. Numbers aren’t everything, but neither should they be ignored. They may be an indication that not all is well.
