Working from home, online shopping, curbside delivery, groceries delivered to your door, online courses, and online church all existed before the pandemic. They aren’t new but definitely more prevalent. The pandemic accelerated many trends that were already happening in our society. Another one of those trends was a decline in church attendance. Adherence to the Christian faith in North America has been on a steady decline for years as well. Some experts estimate that as many as 30% of pre-pandemic church attenders are not going to return and that 1 in 5 churches will close in the next 18 months. Some things will return, like eating out at restaurants, concerts, and travel, but sadly some will not.
