This is one of many that will close in the future, very sad to say. young families dont go to church like they used to, and our population is aging. the baby boomer generation and the fine people before them are dying off and things are changing. Lord knows I dont like the way things are today, but its a fact. There are many who attend church, and thats a good thing. Another element is the ecomony. Yes there are many jobs to be had today, but they dont provide the money that they did years ago. I feel that young families put too much value on "things", instead of real family life. The cost of wants instead of needs puts a huge strain on young families. |
I personally have some family who are splitting up, going their seperatate ways. its a sad thing to see.
