Is your church friendly?

Group Publishing recently published a national study about how friendly the church is perceived to be. Although I’m not happy about the results, I can’t say that I’m not surprised. I think that far too often at church, people tend to be more friendly to the people they already know where new people often feel out of place and unnoticed.

Regardless, check out Group’s “State of the Church” study right here
