Look around your church, are some young people missing? Some churches are losing their 18 to 30 yr olds. Why is that?

i dont know about everyone else but i quit going because i realized that 95+% of the people who go to church are some of the biggest hypocrits i have ever seen. not to mention judgemental & unchristian-like. i think they go just to hear the latest gossip, see what people are wearing & what they drive so they have something to talk about til next sunday. i believe in God but i dont think i have to show up at a certain place, at a certain time to prove it to God. God is everywhere.

I know some preachers are all about politics, this turns some people away.

It is. Plus the preachers are total morons that like sex with little kids. That might be one reason the younger people are quiting in droves. They don't like sex with perverted preachers!

You call it Church...I don't see many Christians walking around my old Church. I'd rather worship on my own the way my GOD tells me to and not some old hypocrite.....JESUS>RELIGIO N!

This has been my experience with the church I have been going to and it may provide another answer for you question about why the young are leaving church.

Fist off I noticed the preacher preaching the same stuff over and over again for weeks at a time. You could miss a Sunday or three and he would still be preaching the same thing. I am sick of this to the point I told my spouse I have had it and the next service I go to if it is not something different I will not go back. I will find another church. Secondly I have children and they are not learning anything in the youth class. The person over the youth is nothing but a youth and lets them sit there on their phones and iPods and play. That is not church, that's play time. Thirdly I can't say anything to anyone without it ending up in the next sermon or being mentioned in the next Sunday school class. Using other people's feelings as a tool to talk to others and reach others (especially if it was told in total confidence to someone) is rude and disrespectful. Fourthly they love bomb you for the first couple of months and then you are nothing to them after that, not to all the members but to some.

There is something wrong if you aren't hearing different things at church. Got to be a lazy preacher or something with recycled sermons.

Now I don't mean to talk bad about anyone just stating my own opinion.
