A pervasive part of the
American fabric is fraying and decaying before our eyes.
The church is withering.Though the vast majority (77%)
of Americans identify themselves as Christians, they
have largely stopped attending church. Less than 20%
of the population now makes it to church in a typical
week. Some 4000 churches are closing every year. It’s
a major and unprecedented social upheaval.The film follows
a church that has seen its attendance plunge from 900
to 40. In addition to external cultural factors that
affect all churches, this church is disintegrating from
the inside from a variety of human storms. A pastor
who doesn’t know who or what God is. Fights over
petty things. A faction of angry ex-members that devises
a plan to take over the church.Throughout the story,
cameras also visit other dying churches—as well
as innovative new forms of church that are thriving.
These range from a ministry in a Pennsylvania pub to
an outreach in Los Angeles that brings joy to skid-row
moms.By the end of the film, viewers will experience
hope and a refreshing glimpse into how faith may be
pursued in the future.
