I have nothing against the Church but I observed there are more older people who are members of different Church organizations and also very much active to Church activities. Today's generation only few who involve themselves from these activity, it will be better if they will at least encourage and invite young generation to be involve for the next generation and continuation of these activities- out reach ach community for people's awareness of Church activities on how to grow their relationship to our Creator, certain changes that will retain the teachings of faith and yet improve the approach to invite more church goers and their involvement. Few Innovations and Changes will be not be bad for betterment, right?

hmmm.. maybe, but I'm really in particular with the approach such as alive sermons, music of praise people can sing together with the choir involvement in Church Activities, but it was a nice film to awaken their religion ;)

It is true that the more older generation goes to church more than the younger generation. The only reason you see some of the younger generation in church is because their parents or someone older had to drag them there so it's not like they are attending because they want to there.

Many religions are very old and very organized. By that virtue, it not easy feat to change some things –especially the kinds of k things that people demanded form their church. Religion, in many times, has been diminished in human life because they are so many issues happening at once and many of them affect and demand our attention. It’s easier for older people because they have gone through life and majority of its demands. They fall into a routine and they think more of the future rather than the present. more into the spiritual than the material world.

We must, however remember that getting rid of Christ is a change too far. Too many churches have changed that way - But of course, many never really had Him.

i agree with you,churches should try and involve everyone of all ages.it is a nice idea for churches to also have leaders in all age groups and activities for them.in my church which is catholic there are so many groups you can join,for ladies, men,youth,couples,singles,children ,choir and so many other groups that if you dont find a group to join then you must be the problem.

I think Church can change a little to attract young people. But can't change word of God or the bible word just for attract people come to the church. But I think young people should change to suit the church not church change to suit the young people. When God give you anything, then what young people give for God in return? nothing. Just ask them to go to church, they won't. Don't or never ask God to do this or that but you don't do anything for Him. God not your snag. God is God. He can say Yes, No or Wait to your Question.

I think you are right. The Church should really invite younger generation for they are the ones who will continue the work in Church. Pray for it as well.

In today's society, it seems like there's little time to go out and sit at Church. It could be because younger people realize that nowadays Churches are more in it for the money than for the actual prayer and worship to their God. Or perhaps they just don't want to spend the time.

Many young couples where I live, choose the church they will attend by the children's and youth activities the church offers. Many of the churches that don't keep up with the times have gone from memberships of 500 or more to not even 100. Churches do need to consider young people if they want to grown and spread the gospel of Christ.

Each Church do have special activities intended to reach out to people both spiritually and financially. But I guess, it is not that Church who lacks action on this but the people themselves. People of today have engaged more of their free time with leisure activities than taking part with any of those programs or organizations set by their own Churches in their community.

I am always surprised when I hear people say that they are going to church. It doesn't seem like anything that people do anymore, at least not with any regularity.
