This is the demographic data based on the membership of the congregation as submitted to Percept in the Congregational Survey.
The first thing you note from the summary bar is that the major generational group in the congregation is Silents (age 62-79). The narrative on the left tells us that compared to the national average, there are 25% of the congregation in this age group compared to 12% of the U.S. population as a whole. Looking at the graph on the right we learn that the church is well below the US. Average in Boomers (only 22% vs. the average 30%) and only 3% Survivors (yes, you’re right, this church has very few of the highest generation represented in the community as members of their church. We’ll see this comparison presented more clearly in Part 3). On the same graph we note that this church is well above the U.S. average in the older generations present. However, it is important to note that this congregation is at the U.S. average in the youngest generations – Generation Z and Millenials. This information, however, should be viewed in light of the membership of the congregation – 115. These percentages need to be translated into real numbers in order to have meaning for the reader.
What does this mean? The membership of this congregation is aging.
