Supper Club: The Next Generation of Churchgoers

Three guests, good food, and a glass of wine at Pine Tavern Restaurant … those are the ingredients for our weekly Supper Club series, brought to you by Great American Furniture Warehouse.

They’re called “none and dones,” a term being used to describe young people who either don’t have a religious affiliation or have decided they’re not going to go to church anymore. For this week’s Supper Club, Central Oregon Daily’s Curtis Vogel sat down with three local religious leaders to get their take on this trend among the next generation of potential churchgoers.

    Why Milennials are not coming to church.

    Would you agree that the words God, Life and Love are interchangable? God is Life, God is Love, right? Good.

    So Milennials are not really interested in God except on occasions, because religion is all over the place, each one is different, and they find it a little to choose the “right one”. It’s not so much that they don’t believe in the same things, it’s just they find no value of religion to their every day lives. So they’d rather stay home or go do something with that time that’s of great value to them.

    But they are interested in Life and Love.

    What the church needs to do is bring God out of the 1st century and into the 21st century, and make God real for today. There needs to be relevant, useful and available God to the Milennials. It seems these concepts are pretty much universal, not just about the Milennials.
